About our Rental Program
Come and see how fun, easy and rewarding it is to finish your quilts on a longarm!
For those of you who wish to finish their own quilts, we rent time on our APQS Millie and Lucey 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 learn the longarm class, where you will learn how to thread the machine, wind the bobbin, and load the quilt and 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.
No supplies are needed for the 2-3 hour class. You are invited to stay 2 hours after your initial first class and quilt a small quilt or table topper to reinforce your new skills.
