Just in from one of our students, Stephanie B writes...

... I believe in what you are doing and know this is 100% worth every penny... You are a Goddess - Thank You So Much!

“I feel like weekly I am able to add more and more of your wisdom to my longarming business.

Things seem to make so much more sense! I'm completing more jobs faster! Chunking boarders. Creating the layout ahead of time is a life saver!

I thought I'd send this little note to let you know that I believe in what you are doing and know this is 100% worth every penny!

Thank you so... much! Stephanie B. ”

“I have owned my long arm, a Janome Quiltmaker pro with prostitcher for 3yrs, and in that time have competed less than a dozen quilts because I found the task a daunting one. I am not the least bit artistic so free motion is not a really viable option, it would have taken me years to develop the necessary muscle memory and I am too old for that. Then I found MK! Before I would only consider e2e designs, using drag and drop. Just wanted those quilts finished, it was nerve racking trying to keep things matched up and if I lost my place... well you all know about that. Now, thanks to MK I am falling in love with custom quilting. Only one little block or triangle to deal with at a time. And I never loose my place. I haven't quite mastered chunking MK, nor "wiggle ditching" but I am a devoted student and I will keep trying. This is my latest attempt, from layout and rendering to the finished quilt. Now I am excited to keep learning.”

“Ellen, you are brilliant with combining ruler, PS, and free motion! You've blown my mind. I learned so much from you in this class, and I'm definitely going to watch again and do my practice, can't wait. Your teaching style is so fun, feels like I'm in studio right at your side. Thank you especially for your conversational way of thinking out loud, showing how to play and figure stuff out.”

Meet the Instructors

MK and Associates

Melissa Kruschwitz

CEO and The MK

Founder and primary trainer at MK Quilts. MK started out as a quilter over a dozen years ago and is now a freelance computerized longarming expert specializing in the Handi Quilter Pro-Stitcher. Her real-world training comes from growing her basic longarming passion into a profitable business that involves many that share her passion.

Paul Kruschwitz

CTO and Founder - King Nerd

After 30+ years in Enterprise I.T., Paul found that their combined skill sets uniquely made them the perfect team to run MK Quilts. Every beauty needs a beast. The move of the longarming craft into computerized tools and social media left a demand that most retailers could not fill. While others struggle to survive, MK Quilts continues to grow in difficult times.

Ellen Ault

Free Motion Expert and MK Quilts Shop Manager

Ellen joined MK Quilts in 2019 as the Studio Manager using her broad skills to stitch our customer quilts with both free motion and computerized longarming. She has a unique affinity with rulers and free motion that complements MK's skills. Ellen contributes to MK Quilts content and offers her own special courses.

“As a newbie I need all the help I can get and I want to thank you both for all you do. I wish I would have found you guys before I bought my machine, I would have LOVED to have bought it through you because of your customer service and the 'want to help not because you HAVE to' attitude. You have been a Godsend for me, truly.”

Frequently Asked Questions - FAQ

  • What is included?

    The Standard Membership includes all MK Quilts created content and events. Only content from guest instructors will require an additional fee. This is a lot like having a guest lecturer come to your guild for a class, which often requires an extra fee for those that attend. You can view all courses without signing up.

  • How much is it?

    As of April 5th, the Standard Tuition for membership is $29.95 per month. Billed starting 7 days after your initial registration. When we consider the cost of attending a retreat or class each year, we believe this to be a great value.

  • When and how do I pay for my membership tuition?

    After your 7-Day Free trial, your card will automatically be charged each month until you cancel.

  • Will the price I pay ever go up?

    No. Your monthly tuition will remain the same so long as you stay enrolled, no matter how high we raise the tuition. Everyone starting new, or re-enrolling will pay the current tuition.

  • Can I download the courses to view offline?

    Yes, but you do not have to. We recommend downloading only for those with very slow or intermittent internet connections. Courses may be periodically updated and you want to make sure you have the latest content.

    Yes. We guarantee there is no long-term obligation and that you can easily cancel anytime you no longer want to be part of our community.
