Quilting Big Quilts on an Embroidery Machine

There are several ways to handle the bulk of a large quilt. How large is large?  In my book, large is any dimension beyond a crib size quilt (36″ x 52″).  Once a quilt is wider than four hoopings, it’s time to pay attention to the weight of the quilt.

A few weeks ago, I discussed handling a large quilt in my Facebook Live session on the Weightless Quilter. You can watch that broadcast here.

Tomorrow at 1:00 CST, I’ll demonstrate the shortE – the Embroidery Short Arm with a Long Reach.  Since it’s quilting month here at DIME, I figured it was a good time to have a live Q&A on the topic.  The shortE is set up in the studio so you’ll get a good look at it and you can watch the quilting process.  I’ll discuss how to prepare a quilt when using the shortE, how to ‘work the quilt’ and what’s the difference between quilting on the shortE vs. the Weightless Quilter.

    How do I get the special mentioned in the video that includes the templates? When I go to the shop it doesn’t include the templates

    I’ve been watching this video for couple hours because I had so many interruptions from my family. So when I finally get time to order the order page is gone. So I’m like Karen Poole… How do I get the special mentioned in the video that includes the templates? When I go to the shop it doesn’t include the templates
