What is the Longarm League?

The League is a membership that brings longarm quilters together and provides resources to help their businesses thrive! 

Most of us have computerized equipment and quilt edge to edge designs, but not all.

 

How do I join?

Are you new to the business of quilting? We have a 8-week course called Rookie Season designed to take you through the basics. This course is a pre-requisite to joining the Longarm League if you are just starting out. Our next Rookie Season online course will start on January 11, 2022. 

If you are a business owner or if you're not sure if you need our getting started course, fill out this questionnaire, and we'll be happy to give you a personal recommendation.

Since starting the League in August of 2019, we've had short enrollment periods. But, new in 2021: we're be open continually! We've added to our admin team in order to accommodate new members whenever it's right for you! We want you to have the right resources whenever you need them! 

Feel free to sign up for our emails If you are curious as to what we're all about!
