I dropped in and surprised Nanc. I was greeted with hugs and a burst of excitement.

I had the opportunity to visit the Longarm Quilting Academy in Fort Worth Texas. Here is a little tour of the beautiful shop. The Owner and operator of the clean organized store is Nanc Christopherson. I had the pleasure of working with Nanc when we were National Sales Educator’s for Handi Quilter, manufacturers of a large line of quilting machines. When you walk in the front entrance you are greeted not only by staff members but this beautiful color-wall of thread and wide back minky fabric. Nanc carries the largest assortment of wide minky fabrics in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex . This is a brief tour of the academy. Make sure to check it out if you are in the area. Also look for Nanc’s quick tip instructional videos that she posts on her website lqacadamy.net
