Ongoing Quilting Education is a Core Value at TinLizzie18 Retail & Learning Centers

Posted by on March 12, 2014


With the introduction of TinLizzie18’s Retail & Learning Centers (TLRLCs) conveniently located in various regions throughout the United States, we’re taking a hands-on approach to customer service at a whole new level.

TinLizzie18 believes that quilters across America and throughout the world are looking for a true quilting partner, not just a machine vendor. We have created a quilting community that each and every quilter becomes part of the moment their very own TinLizzie18 quilting system arrives at their door. From in home delivery and set up to the rapidly growing list of on site classes at the TLRLCs, and an extensive online training program including webinars and videos to reach even more owners, TinLizzie18 quilters quickly realize that being a part of this quilting family is truly a comfort. Whether beginner or professional, or somewhere in between, quilters of all levels love to learn, share and grow in this art we are all so passionate about.

The classes and retreats offered are an interactive, hands-on experience with high energy, and are filled with knowledge and new, exciting patterns and techniques. Combining lectures with direct hands-on-machine training provides the most effective learning environment.

And quilters are not locked into just one instructor, but rather have several locations and instructors to choose from, so they can select the style, format and location that fits best. TinLizzie18 has assembled top of the line, quality trainers—expert and master quilters—to bring customers a full-range experience with the latest techniques and pattern methods so they can build their long arm knowledge and grow in their trade or hobby. The classes have high attendance by customers who purchase through the TLRLCs.

The beginner classes give new quilters the base knowledge they need to get started, including basic pantographing, freehanding, understanding tensions, discovering feathers, using rulers, computerized quilting first steps and more.  Other classes include:  thread painting, advanced computerized quilting, pantograph and laser light, service, and the ‘Busy in Six Months’ class for quilters looking to build their business.  Trunk shows and training kits are also scheduled.

The TLRLCs are designed to offer customers an experience like no other, with personalized, hands-on demonstrations prior to purchase. For new owners, the centers offer specialized in home delivery and setup by an expert TL18 team, followed by training and a great resource for supplies and accessories. For intermediates and pros, thinking of upgrading to a new system can be confusing. The TinLizzie18 Retail & Learning Centers provide support and follow on training in addition to equipment upgrades and a full range of quilting supplies.

All on-site staff is 100% factory trained. They share a passion not only for the TinLizzie18 product line, but also for the customers they serve; something that truly sets them apart from the pack. One interaction and you’ll see the TinLizzie18 difference.

Each of the TLRLC locations has a different landscape of fun activities to explore along with the love of quilting!  Current locations include Georgia, Wisconsin, Utah and California with additional SuperStores and Demo Locations. More Centers are planned in the near future.

If you’re a new machine quilter who’s been thinking about your first long arm quilting machine, or a seasoned quilter ready to upgrade, the TinLizzie18 Retail & Learning Centers are a great place to start. Demo the various machines and accessories and take advantage of exceptional training opportunities and second to none customer support.

Who doesn’t want to become part of a passionate quilting community?
