Longarm Quilting

In 2021, Needleworx acquired a Gammill computerised quilting machine. So, we now proudly offer longarm quilting service to our clients. Our machine has a 12ft bed meaning we can service designs up to 110inches.

We have on file a large range of patterns collected from all over the world. We stock themed and seasonal patterns and designs by Sweet Dreams, Anne Bright, Intelliquilter and more. Whether you require edge-to-edge or a custom pattern, if we don’t have your design, just ask, and we will happily source it for you.

How it Works

Longarm quilting is the process of bringing together the top, wadding and back of a quilt. We place all the pieces on the bed of our machine, and the ‘longarm’ works vertically and horizontally across the quilt, sewing the patterns of your choice. Our machine is computerised, making the process more efficient and allowing us a significant amount of freedom of pattern choice.

To utilise our longarm quilting service, all you need to do is supply your quilt pieces, including the wadding and backing. We stock various types of wadding and a large range of quality fabrics for backing.

To Book Your Spot

Our longarm quilting service spots fill up quickly. So, to avoid a lengthy wait, please book in advance. If you require your quilt by a specific date, please communicate that at the time of booking.

Service times vary depending on the design. For quotes and estimated times, please contact us.

Demonstrations

Periodically we host in-store demonstrations. We love sharing our passion for craft with our customers, so each demonstration is different. On one occasion, we may highlight a new, exciting product, and on the next, we might step you through a tricky pattern. In-store demonstrations are free of charge, but due to limited spacing, RSVPs are necessary.

To find out about upcoming demonstrations, sign up for our newsletter. If you have a product, method, or pattern you would like to learn more about, contact us or drop us a message on Facebook.
