Longarm Rental

For those people who want to finish their own quilts, we rent our Longarm Quilting machine, our Grace Q’nique 21Pro stitch regulated machine. You can either complete your quilt with free-motion/ruler work or you can use the computerised system.

You can finish a quilt the size of a doll quilt up to a king-size spread.
Come and see how fun, easy and rewarding it is to finish your quilts on a longarm!
To rent my Grace Q’nique 21Pro long arm machine, you’ll first need to complete a long arm workshop.

3.Adjust the tension
4.I will show you how to align and stitch out an edge-to-edge design.

Long Arm Rental

Once you have completed your Beginners Long Arm Workshop you will be able to rent my Grace Q’nique 21Pro long arm machine either by the hour or by the day to complete your own quilts.
You should be able to quilt a full or queen-sized quilt in approximately four or five hours using the computer assistance but free motion/rulers will take much longer.
All sessions are fully supervised and include a new needle and a single, solid coloured thread of your choice.
There are additional charges for speciality threads and wadding.
You will also need to bring your quilt top and enough wadding and backing fabric that is 4inches wider on each side compared to the quilt top.
For example, if your quilt top is 60″ x 60″, we will need both your backing and wadding to be at least 68″ x 68″.
