Do you have questions about loading your quilt on your Handi Quilter frame? This class will address all your questions and give you insight and tips to make the job easier, faster, and more precise. Beautiful quilting has to begin with a properly loaded quilt, and in this class we will cover how to make sure your back is on grain and how to load it to your best advantage. Then Maxie will show you how to load the top to ensure that the edges are straight and aligned. This lecture/demo class will allow for questions and answers, as well as sharing students tips! (For all Handi Quilter Frames except Simply Sixteen.)

  • You'll learn several ways to load, including the time saving "Leader Grip" method.
  • How and when to "float" your quilt.
  • Correct tension on the poles.
