Quilt Magine Classes
Meet the Teacher
Betty Sherman started quilting in 2012. She started out by signing up for a quilt class at a local quilt shop. The first quilt was a (quilt as you go) quilt. “my Aunt was turning 80 years old and I wanted to make her something special. After her first quilt she wanted to make her granddaughter a picture quilt. After she finished making the quilt she realized that she had to quilt it. She started quilting it on a domestic machine and then decided to get a longarm quilting machine. After getting her first longarm she realized that she was hooked. She mostly taught herself and attended several classes and watch many you tube videos on how to use the longarm. She then upgraded to a newer machine, a Nolting N V, with the QuiltMagine computer system, which she currently uses today. She has taught free motion quilting and Template/Rulers at several quilt area shops. We are excited to have her teaching at Memory Lane!
