Longarm Rentals

Have you always wanted to finish your own quilts? Tired of driving long distances to rent a longarm especially after the snow flies here in Montana?!?! Well now you can rent time on our Gammill stitch regulated machine in our fully equipped private studio space. You can finish a quilt from wall or crib size up to a king-size.

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 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.

Rental includes access to our growing library of longarm quilting books filled with ideas to get those creative juices flowing. Also included is access to more than 75 pantographs from which to choose and create edge-to-edge designs your quilts. Stay tuned as we begin loading a preview of the library for you to peruse online. Renters will also have access to a variety of longarm quilting rulers for ruler work and stitching in the ditch.
