Want to take finishing your quilts to a beautiful new level? In this class we introduce you to Pro-Stitcher, the user friendly computerized quilting system that Handi Quilter designed just for their long arm quilting machines! In the morning, we will go over the basics of Pro-Stitcher and some of the improvements that have been made for the routine things we do all the time. There are lots of tips and tricks in this class! In the afternoon, we will explore more in depth the possibilities that this program can bring to your quilting. Like doing fancy fills in small areas, merging or cropping designs, and applique cutouts.

This is a Hands-on Class!!
For those of you who have the newer versions of Pro-Stitcher, you will be able to bring your tablet and follow along with Amy as she shows you how easy it is to create beautiful designs on the screen. If you do not have Pro-Stitcher yet, but would like to explore what it can do before adding it to your Handi Quilter, we will provide a tablet for you to also take part in the class! This is a first for both us and Handi Quilter but we believe that it is vital for you to be able to do the same things that the teacher is so that you can experience for yourself how easy and fun it is to use!
Meet our Educator!
Amy Domke was a fine arts major in college. When assigned a project using an “unconventional” medium, she made a quilt with the help of her neighbor. Thirty years later, Amy is still quilting. She loves exploring new styles and trying new techniques. After many years of renting time on a longarm at a local shop, she purchased her own machine. She now quilts professionally on an HQ Infinity® with Pro-Stitcher®. Amy teaches quilting classes at her local shop, ranging from ruler classes to longarm classes. She also travels to give one-on-one instruction to new machine owners. From her studio, she also accepts quilt commissions and is in the process of releasing patterns for her original designs. She is a member of the Handi Quilter Inspiration Squad and has been featured in some Handi Quilter ads. Amy lives in Oregon with her husband, Chip, and their three dogs. She is an avid tennis player and loves to hike the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
