What is longarm quilting? I get this question a lot from friends and family who know “literally” what a quilt is, but otherwise never realized that there is a variety of processes and steps to completing a quilt. Two of the most familiar steps are piecing and quilting. Longarm quilting uses a specific industrial sewing machine to “sandwich” the three layers that comprise a quilt together with precise stitches using thread (the process of quilting).
I am lucky enough to own a Gammil Statler Stitcher longarm quilting machine. For me, it is a dream come true. I have found a platform to express myself and have a business of my own. What I do is called “quilting service for hire.” The longarm quilting machine allows me to use precise patterns to add another dimension to your pieced quilt top. My machine is equipped with a sophisticated CAD (Computer Aided Design) software called Creative Studio. There are so many things we can accomplish with our shared creativity and this software. I would love to help you finish your quilt the way that you have imagined it to be. Or, if that seems overwhelming, you can let me design a unique set of patterns that compliment your pieced top.
