Kansas Longarm Quilters


Welcome to the 

Kansas Longarm Quilters


We welcome machine quilters of all skill levels and machine types, from longarm to the domestic sewing machine quilter.

Next Meeting:

June 16, 2018
Morning Program: Trunk Show and Longarming 101
Instructor: Dorie Hruska

Dorie comes to you with 16 years of experience quilting for customers, where 95% of the tops had some type of issue. Not all quilts come out perfect. Although as longarm quilters there are many things we can do to improve the look of a quilt top. We will discuss the basics of preparing and loading your quilt, so that it finishes square, flat and balanced, or almost. Tips for wavy borders, hole in the fabric, fullness in blocks, etc. So if you quilt for customers or just for yourself, you will leave with confidence knowing how to tackle those not so perfect tops.

Afternoon Workshop: Fearless Feathers
Instructor: Dorie Hruska
Time 1 pm - 4 pm
Location: A-1 Singer Sewing Center
Cost: $50 (Includes Lunch)

Feathers come in all shapes, sizes and styles. Stacked, Long arm, Whimsical or Heirloom feathers. Each quilt artist develops their own style of feather, just like your personal signature. During this workshop we will practice drawing feathers inside of circles, ovals, squares, triangles and borders. Then learn how these feathers can be used as overall designs or small background fillers. Dorie will take you step by step through the different designs, to take the Fear out of Feathers. 

Students are highly encouraged to bring 8 1/2'' x 11'' clear plastic and dry erase markers to practice drawing on the handouts. (These will also be available for purchase) Or they can bring hand held white dry erase boards to practice on
