Quilt Mercantile Quilt Plano '22 / HANDI QUILTER August '22 TRUCK EVENT--Adam Rateliff AND Micki Chappelear

HELLO!  We hope you were blessed with some of the rain over the past couple days in DFW.  Summer is winding down so now you get to plan some "me time."  We will be at Quilt Plano 2022 quilt show this Friday and Saturday.  The show is located at the Plano Event Center 2000 East Spring Creek Parkway.  Hopefully you can come see some amazing quilts and visit our booth #41 across from the guild booth.  We have many new samples that were just quilted and bound a couple days ago so come see what is new.

Deven has been hard at work setting up a wonderful display of Janome & Elna sewing, embroidery, and long arm machines.  Quilt shows are a GREAT time to get your hands on many brands of sewing, embroidery, and long arm machines!  (Jennifer bought her first sewing machine during the Plano Quilt Show 20+ years ago.)  PLEASE REMEMBER for yourself and tell your friends that are searching for their next machine:  You are choosing your dealership when you buy a machine.  Who do you want helping you after the purchase?  Buy from the store with experienced sales and service team that focuses on customer satisfaction.  (That might not be the closest one to where you live)  We would love for you to try and consider us as your store to buy the machines we sell:  Elna, Janome, Bernina, & Handi Quilter.  At the show we are only allowed to display Janome & Elna machines but we will match or beat a written quote.  We deliver and set up for FREE any 18 inch or larger stand up Handi Quilter machine within 75 miles of our store.  (Outside of that range we charge a nominal fee for mileage.)  We have been an Elna dealer for 16+ years and a Handi Quilter dealer for 13 + years.  We have three in-house service technicians with a total of 61 cumulative years of experience.  We are the most experienced Handi Quilter dealer in North Texas.  Let us know if we can help you with any sewing, embroidery, or long arm machine needs.  Remember to ask your quilting community who takes care of them the best!  Deal of the day will be the Janome Qult Maker 15" long arm.  MSRP is $4,995.  This is the same machine as the Handi Quilter Moxie. (FYI--several machine companies know Handi Quilter is the best and get them to make a machine for their brand....)  This is a great introductory long arm machine and our show demo, that was taken out of the box today, will go home with someone for $3,995.  Be the first to reply to this email OR come see us in the morning at the show!

We are excited to have Jackie Brown demonstrating free motion quilting on the long arm in our booth.  She has some beautiful samples and is sure to have a blue ribbon on a quilt in the show that she quilted. Jackie will have an all day feathers class August 22nd during our upcoming HQ truck event.  She is a master of amazing feathers.  Let her improve your skills!

Handi Quilter Event classes with Micki and ADAMSEWFUN:

Tuesday August 23rd: All day class. $75. Advanced Pro Stitcher with Adam.  One of the most asked questions when it comes to Pro-Stitcher is how do I do borders and corners?  In this class, we will talk about all of the different ways that borders and corners can be accomplished.  You will see me do it on the screen, then go to your machines and do it yourself.  You will have options to pick your own designs, so it's more like you are working at home with your own quilts, but you will have me to ask questions from along the way.  In the afternoon, we will work with creating our own designs from existing designs.  You will learn how to combine designs to make something all new.

Wednesday August 24th: All day class with Adam and Micki- $75. Basic-Intermediate Pro-Stitcher with a bonus project—The HQ Bag. Make it take it. Quilt a bag on the longarm!  Sample is in our booth at quilt show...really cool bag.

Thursday August 25th:  All day class with Adam and Micki. Price TBD. Dream Big Poinsettia  Have you ever wanted to buy the digitized wholecloth design by A Bit Orange?  Email me and I will send you the link to see this amazing design.  Adam did a three part video series on this process.  COME TAKE THE CLASS WITH ADAM.  You will learn to baste a wholecloth quilt, set areas and place designs.  We have the white Poinsettia in stock and are working with the digitizer to get the best deal on the design to help keep this class affordable.  

Friday/Saturday August 26h & 27th: $149. Two days of hands-on education for those who have been dreaming of having their own longarm. YOU spend two days on a Handi Quilter Amara 20” machine with Pro-Stitcher. YOU learn about tension, rulers, free motion, and computerized quilting. YOU get to ask all the questions you want and try your hand at longarm quilting while learning tips and tricks from Adam and Micki in a fun and educational environment.

There are hundreds of beautiful quilts in the show and many wonderful vendors set up to show you their newest products.  We hope to see you there!
