So, what is a long arm quilting machine? It is basically a “fancy” sewing machine that is mounted on a quilt frame. Our studio uses a semi-industrial sewing machine and a super-king size frame, which holds the layers in place while you sew. This means one no longer has to baste their pieces together or wrestle a bulky project through the small hole of a domestic sewing machine. These extra features make it possible to finish a project faster, easier and more accurately. Quilters can spend more time drawing their design on the fabric with the aid of a laser, pantograph, specialist rulers or by hand. The best way to understand how a Long Arm Quilting Machine works is to visit our studio and “have a go”. This is our Gracie Quilt Frame and Janome 1600p. We love it!
Our studio is lovely and bright. We meet at a community centre in Breightmet Bolton.
We have 4 class sewing machines and all the "trimmings" you need to work on your project.
