Birds of a Feather


Welcome to Birds of a Feather 2018, a unique educational experience dedicated to quilting with machines. Whether you stand up or sit down to quilt, you are creating art with every stitch.

The array of classes is both amazing and inspiring, taught by a cast of quilting talent that can send thimbles spinning. But the weekend is so much more than just classes. It’s a retreat, a community, and a gathering of exceptional people sharing the art of quilting with machines.

If you’ve attended a previous Birds, you understand that the electricity is palpable the moment you arrive. There are classes, quilt challenges, select vendors, exhibits and drawings for amazing prizes. There’s always something to do, someone to talk with and something new to see. It’s the perfect atmosphere for recharging your quilting batteries and networking to build new friendships and rekindle old ones.

We’ve added a new wing to our education lineup this year. We’re excited to introduce The Longarm Network's Flight School focused on Innova Robotics. We will take our first “solo flight" at Birds of a Feather 2018, as we present The Longarm Network's Flight School program featuring Innova AutoPilot Mach3™ and soon to be released Navigator P2™.


At Birds, we have something for everyone. Whether you’re a beginner or an advanced quilter, our classes span the gamut. Everyone is welcome, no matter what brand you drive!
