 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 must be less than 100". For example a 98x105" quilt will work, but a 105x105" quilt is too large for our machine.

Take Your Quilting To The Next Level

We are NOW offering three NEW Longarm Design classes.

In Learning to use a Pantogram we introduce you to this fun technique, Mastering Free Motion it's all about swirls, echoes, & lines; in and in Point to Point/Ruler Work you'll take your custom quilting to another level using point-to-point quilting and ruler work.
