Longarm Rentals And Training
Long Arm Machine Rental
Rental Fees: $17 per hour + $5 thread charge. *Punch cards are available for 10 hours/$15 an hour*
This option is available for those that have completed the Longarm Rental Quilting Class only and are comfortable quilting without assistance. *Please see below for details on that class.
Included in the rental fee:
-You can schedule use of our rental longarm M-F from 10am-4:30pm.
-We provide use of the cutting table to square-up your backing before quilting, or to trim your quilts after you are finished quilting, but please bring your own rotary cutter.
-You must remove your quilt from the machine and be ready to leave the shop by 4:30pm unless we have worked out arrangements in advance.
-You may opt to free motion or you can use your own pantograph. We offer Pantovision as well. Pantovision is a free motion aid that enables you to quilt from the front of the longarm.
-We have some paper printed pantographs available, if you find a design you would like to use. Ask about using Pantovision, a computer aid that allows you to choose the size of your pantograph.
-You are responsible for cleaning up after you are finished with your session, including picking up loose thread, putting away tools and general tidying up.
Thread: To ensure proper operation of our machine, we will wind and change all your bobbins using any high quality thread that we carry. We carry cones of Superior thread and Innovatech in a variety of weights and colors. So Fine can also be used in the bobbin. There is a $5.00 thread charge per rental period.

Longarm Rental Quilting Class Cost: $150 (includes rental for the rest of that day) + $5 thread fee
This personalized, private, beginner, hands-on class, is taught on our Innova Longarm stitch-regulated machine. You will learn how to prepare your top, batting, and backing, load your quilt, as well as the basics of using the machine. We will also cover using basic free-style movements and how to quilt an overall pattern using a pantograph. This includes learning how to set them up on the machine, rolling the quilt using the pattern and following the pattern.
By the end of the class you will be able to quilt an overall design on your quilt. You may opt to purchase a quilt kit to practice on or bring your own quilt to use.
-Your rental machine is a free motion M24 INNOVA. If you have not certified to use this machine, you will be required to take a refresher class prior to using it. The Class is $150 and includes a full day of rental with the class fee. There is also a $5 thread fee. Your class will run approx. from 10 am to noon, and the rest of that SAME DAY will be yours to quilt.
