APQS Roadshow

Saturday, January 13, 2024...11am-2pm

A roadshow is the best time to learn about APQS long arm machines!

Cuppa Tea Quilting will be hosting our first in house road show on Saturday, January 13, 2024 from 11am-2 pm.

APQS Road Show Longarm Experience – Priest River, ID

This is a FREE event...

Cuppa Tea
This is your chance to learn about our longarm quilting machines and discover the model that is right for you.

What you’ll learn:

Designed for quilters who do not currently own a longarm machine or current owners who are looking to upgrade, the 3 hour FREE seminar includes valuable information about owning your first longarm.

  • Discover resources for templates, batting, freehand instruction manuals, wholesale contacts, thread, etc.
  • Find out where to buy pantograph patterns, books and stencils to make your longarm quilting fun and hassle-free.
  • Learn business philosophies, products and services, pricing, marketing, and income forecasting. (You’ll even get a Sample Business Plan.)
  • Explore the differences between each APQS machine model and adding computerized quilting to a new or previous APQS machine.
  • Learn which accessories are the “gotta haves” to make your quilting fast and easy.
  • Learn how to oil, clean and service your machine to provide years of quilting fun.

To learn more about what you can expect from the show, check out this blog post.

On the day of the Road Show, please plan to attend the full duration of the event. Most shows take about three hours, and throughout the course of the event we cover a lot of important information. This allows all attendees to have a shared understanding of the machines when it comes time for that all-important test drive.

Come and learn about our fabulous all American made machines!
