Videos of Handi Quilter Lessons

Share it Please
While we were at Handi Quilter headquarters in Salt Lake City we went through lots of techniques for quilting including using rulers, templates, pantographs and groovy boards (plastic templates which have a groove in them - you follow the etched design using a stylus). Plus we tried out loads of different threads including threads which some long arm machines find more difficult but which were a breeze in the Handi Quilter - metallics, Sliver (ribbon-like), threads so thick that you use them in the bobbin, etc. Great fun!

Here's a video taken while we tried out Metallic Thread.
