Is a Longarm Machine Quilting Service for the Busy Quilter based in South East Queensland, Australia. I enjoy creatively quilting designs to enhance the piecing and fabric within a quilt. I have been piecing quilt tops since 2001, machine quilting them since 2004 and a longarm quilter since 2008. I have recently been recognised with numerous Quilt Show awards, both nationally and internationally, for both my piecing and quilting.
I have had my APQS Millenium machine since February 2008, and am very happy to say that I am now one of the New Dealers that have been appointed for Australia. If you are thinking of purchasing a longarm machine and would like to try one out, please let me know as I would be happy for you to come and have a play on "Good Golly Miss Molly".
She has had a few things attached to her since I got her, but they help my job of quilting. The handiest thing I find is the pin cushion on the handles and the magentic clip I place my scissors on. There is another pair of scissors at the back so I am never searching for scissors. The thread catcher on the top is well used. Once it is full I give the threads to keen embroiderers who use them for "something".
As I am classified as a Professional Quilter (yeah right!) there is only one category I can enter my own quilts in Queensland Quilt Show and this category only has one prize. Unless I want to do Textile Art or Pictorial quilts - they are art works not quilts!!!!
So I decided that one of my class samples this year I would quilt on my Janome 6600. This is the resulting quilt. Sample of an 8 pointed star. Called Serenstar as Seren means Star in Welsh and this is a double star!!! I knew I bought my longarm for a reason. It is very tiring on the back and shoulders quilting on a table top, but it is completed and I love the back!
