“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. ”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.”Karen D
“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.”Linda D

“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.”Melissa M.
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.
Is there a Guarantee?
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.
Do you offer refunds?
If you request a refund a short time after being charged, we will happily refund your most recent payment. No refunds are available for prior months. No partial month refunds. If you cancel in the middle of a month your membership will stay active until the end of your monthly subscription period.
How do I get support and ask questions?
MK Quilts has become a top retailer in a very short time due to the service and training they provide. MKQU membership gets you priority access through the use of our members-only MKQU Facebook Group. There will be regular live webinar events where questions can be answered. You can schedule a dedicated support time to address your issues via the MKQuilts.com website. For urgent matters, you can call the MK Quilts main line at 727-935-1739.
Can I share my login and membership with others?
No. It’s like going to college. Your tuition only pays for your seat in the class. Each person needs their own membership.
If I am on a free tuition program, will I have to pay the higher tuition when it expires?
MK Quilts will honor the tuition price that was in place when you were given the free tuition membership. (Usually included in new machine and ProStitcher purchases made with MK Quilts.)
Can I post these videos on Facebook or other places on the internet?
No. Please support our efforts by only posting links to the courses. This will require them to join for at least he 7-day free trial. Our classes are for you to use in the privacy of your own home/shop only. Any distribution, copying, or sharing with others is against the rules and does result in membership cancellation and potential legal action.
How can I ask a question or provide feedback for a class?
Courses should have 'discussions' enabled which will allow you to leave questions and comments for the instructor. (Look to the top right for the button when on a computer. Smaller devices may have it in a menu.) If you want to provide feedback, send email to firstname.lastname@example.org or use the form on MKQuilts.com.
