We have 300 happy longarm users of our self-study, multi-media, training materials for the Innova AutoPilot Mach 3. This is great! We designed it to be helpful, not only in learning, but also in being a reference material.
It is doing well because it is:

  • Consistent It is not like wading through hundreds of disjointed web videos.

  • Inclusive – It covers all of the functions of the Mach 3

  • Focused – It is focused on learning the Functions offered in the Mach 3.

  • Oriented – It works with the quilt and quilting issues.

  • Self-Study – It was designed to be a self-study approach to reduce the number of technical support issues that you may encounter. As a result, 75% of those earning a "Certificate Of Longarm Mastery" were self-studied.

  • Multi-Media It is composed of:
  • 8 hours of videos of the materials, step-by-step.
  • Step-by-step workbooks that are illustrated with hundreds of screen shots.
  • A USB Drive with all of the 18 patterns, pictures, and projects that are needed for the class.

  • 21 projects and exercises.

  • Hints, Tips & Techniques – 31 pages of helpful information.

  • Telesupport – 90 minutes of free telesupport is included. Our experience is that less than 15% of those buying the materials call with questions.

  • Optional Free Workshops – As some learn better in a workshop environment. A two-day workshop is given free of charge for the owner of the materials and one guest/employee. There are multiple companies represented in these workshops. We estimate that around 25% of the people purchasing the materials ask for a workshop. These are given at specific times in St. Joseph, MI and Indianapolis, IN.

  • Optional Private Workshops – These are for single companies/longarm studios. There can be up to 4 people in the class. It is conducted at our location in Valparaiso, IN. These private workshops are $100/day with no charge for added people.

  • 18 additional “Extreme Edge-to-Edgeprojects are included, with patterns in the project.

  • 1,600 digitized patterns are included with the combo purchase.

  • Certificate of Longarm Mastery is awarded upon successful submission of photos of your projects.
As it is proper, all workshops can only be attended if one person in a company/longarm studio has purchased the self-study materials.
The first workbook, “Advanced Training AutoPilot Mach 3,” focuses on all of the Functions of the Mach 3. The second workbook, “Be Creative With Your Mach 3”, expands on the “ABC Draw” Function covered in the first workbook and trains you in modifying patterns that you have that don’t fit the quilt exactly and how to create patterns.
The Innova AutoPilot Mach 3 is the most advanced quilting system available. However , with the plethora of Function options, it can be a bit overwhelming. Overcome this obstacle with these materials.
So don’t hold back! Make the most of the serious investment in your Mach 3 at a fraction of the cost of the Mach 3.
“Advanced Training AutoPilot Mach 3”, with all of its associated material, is listed at $999.00. “Be Creative With Your Mach 3” with all of its associated material,: is listed at $299.00. Both together as a combo is $1,099, for a savings of almost $200 for all of the benefits listed above - quite a good deal!.
