Rent Our Machine & Quilt It Yourself

Hen & Chicks Studio longarm machine quilting has expanded to renting our APQS Millennium. First you must complete our Longarm Certification Class for $125. For dates and times of upcoming classes, visit our class list. Once the Longarm Certification class is complete, you can rent the longarm for $20 per hour with a 2-hour minimum and half-hour increments after the minimum. Our longarm quilting machine has a 10 foot table which means one side measurement of your quilt must be less than 100". For example a 98x105" quilt will work, but not a 105x105" quilt.

Take Your Quilting To The Next Level

We are excited to offer three NEW Longarm Design classes to our calendar. Using her 20+ years of longarm quilting experience, instructor Marilyn Kidd has handpicked and specially designed these three classes just for you. You'll start at the beginning in Design 1 perfecting your meander & variations, in Design 2 it's all about swirls, echoes, & lines, and in Design 3 you'll take your custom quilting to another level using point-to-point quilting. Take a look at our current class schedule for dates & more information.
