Kathy, I saw that you mentioned your Type A personality with a little perfectionism thrown in! I hear ya!
A few months after I got my Lenni (2 years ago) I jumped in with both feet and signed up for a class through craftonlineuniversity.com . It is called APQS Longarm Certification, Sponsored by Fons and Porter. Dawn Cavanaugh teaches the class. It's 14 lessons spanning maybe 16 weeks or so. It is not for the faint of heart! Dawn is a great teacher and she expects a lot.....so that should feed your perfectionism. It is pricey --- $499.00! But, what I learned in that class would have taken me years to learn on my own. Most of the assignments are mailed to Dawn and she personally critiques them. For being an online course it is very hands on and I cannot say enough about Dawn. The course also covers starting and building a business; it is pretty all encompassing.
I am happy to say I passed the class and have the Certificate framed on my wall to prove it! Look into it.....good luck!
