Rent Our Machine & Finish Your Projects!

Hen & Chicks Studio continues to expand our APQS Millennium machine rental options. In order to rent our machine, our renters must first complete our Longarm Certification Class for $135. Our class offerings are on the website! Go check out the times we are offering!

(If you do not see a time listed for the Longarm Certification class that works in your schedule, please contact us and we will see what we can do!

 Once you have completed the Longarm Certification class, we look forward to helping you move to the next step in finishing your projects!  You can rent our APQS 'Millie' for $25 per hour (2-hour minimum).  We are now offering more rental times - including early mornings & evenings! 
To schedule rental time, please contact the studio at (641) 366-3336 or

Our longarm quilting machine has a 10 foot table. Due to this size, one side measurement of your quilt backing must be less than 98". For example a 98x105" quilt back will work, but a 105x105" quilt back is too large for our machine. One edge of your quilt top should be 94" or less.

Hen & Chicks Studio Panto Class


Ready to add another longarm quilting skill to put to use?  After taking the longarmcertification class and free motion quilting a minimum of one quilt, Hen & Chicks Studio  offers you a personal panto class with rental immediately following to put your skills to use.  Call today to schedule your Panto Class!  (641) 366-3336
