Long-Arm Quilting Machine Rental

Do you have UFOs begging to be finished?  A just-finished top that you'd like to quilt yourself, but it's a little too big for your domestic machine?  Now you can get them done quickly and easily on our state-of-the-art long-arm quilting machine from American Professional Quilting Systems (APQS).

Before you can rent our machine, you'll need to complete a two-part training.  The first part is a class where you'll learn to wind and load a bobbin, thread the machine, load a quilt, and operate the machine.  Some quilting techniques will be covered in this class.  Then, before renting the machine, you will schedule a one-on-one mentored session, where we'll guide you through a series of practice exercises in loading and unloading a quilt, threading the machine, adjusting tension, and actual quilting.  Upon completion, you'll be certified to rent our machine!

You can download an informational brochure here, or pick one up when you're in the store.
