If you are deciding whether to invest in a longarm machine system then you might consider coming to stay with me in Scotland for a weekend of longarm experience and practice.

  1. You have made my day Linzi! Having recently retired and really embraced quilting I was devastated to hear that the shop I’ve been using for Longarm quilting is closing. Doing a trawl of Internet I’ve found you and close by! I’ll be in touch when my next project is complete and look forward to meeting you.
