For those folks who want to finish their own quilts, we rent time on our Gammill stitch regulated machines. You can finish a quilt the size of a doll quilt up to a king-size spread.
Before renting a machine, you will need to complete a certification class, where you will learn how to thread the machine, wind the bobbin, and load the quilt with our zipper system, as well as how to operate the machine. We will also cover basic quilting techniques and there will be time to get acquainted with and practice on the machine. We will provide practice material for the class.
Come and see how fun, easy and rewarding it is to finish your quilts on a longarm!
