  • Longarm heaven and guild update

    Wow, what I ride it has been since April and the purchase of my APQS Lenni. Such a simple machine, and for me, and edge to edge free motion quilter - just perfect. I named her Margie to honor my mother who taught me to sew when I was 8 or 9. And my dealer, Sheridan Carter in Hendersonville NC is the BEST. So I'm in longarm heaven. It has been an

  • General lighting for sewing studio and longarm

    I have a wonderful huge finished basement room for my studio - which includes a sewing area, cutting area, and the longarm. the room is dark. and the lighting I have is a fan light and a couple of floor lamps I drag around. I've been looking at the goose neck crafting floor lamps, but they are very short for my needs. 4' max when the goose neck

  • Re: Quilt Studio Storage! I Need Some!

    Hey there Judy. Looks like you've put every inch of your space to good use. And I've seen messy, and your room is NOT messy. You have an organized space with purpose and visibility. My plan is to eventually fill the reach-in closet in my room with adjustable shelving. Lots of room for project boxes, and stuff and things. I like your cubbies

  • Re: Quilt Studio Storage! I Need Some!

    Hey Carol, great ideas for storage! My batting is stacked on the floor. Plastic bins are a great idea. and, where did you get the acid-free boxes? I'd like to check them out. My first longarm, the APQS Lenni, arrived on Wed. I've been practicing ever since. So much to learn about the quilting part and the maintenance part! Here are a couple

  • Does anyone use a chair by Heavenly Seating for sewing or longarming?

    I recently bought a longarm, my first. I don't like to stand for long periods, so I've been looking for a tall task chair for the longarm. I'm hoping I can find one that can also be low enough to use at my sewing desk, but that is not a requirement. Anyway, I found Heavenly Seating online. They offer task chairs with all the ergonomic bells

    Help! We recently moved, and my basement sewing studio is 21' x 24'! Can you imagine? Anyway, I'm in desperate need of storage ideas.

  • Re: Longarmers Share #2

    Hi everyone. So glad to find this discussion. I'm about to buy a longarm. Have a less than a year old 2013 APQS Lenni demo with lifetime warranty picked out and on hold (refundable) as I secure the funding. Totally new to longarming. I'm sure I will have a miriad of questions as I go along. Oh, I posted to my blog about the research I did: Sharon

  • Shopping for a longarm!

    I'm shopping for a longarm! Keep in mind, I am an in-vitro longarmer! Took a class once, fell in love with it, and immediately put on on my bucket list! I talked to Cindy Roth last year ( www.longarm.university ) as I started my research. I can't afford a brand new machine with all the bells, whistles, and computer, but I don't want to buy

  • Sewing Studio ready to stock with quilting "stuff"

    We only have pictures left to hang upstairs!! Yea! That in itself will be a project, but a fun one. But, we've been in the house nearly 2 weeks now, and I'm getting desperate to move into the sewing studio. The house has a 1100 sq ft finished basement plus a 20' x 28' unfinished workshop for the DH. The basement has a decent office space

  • Finally, we have moved!

    Finally, we moved into the new-to-us house on 1/22/2014. Thankfully, the weather was sunny and dry - but cold! The move went well, nothing damaged or lost. Of course, it was only 3 miles. Very nice experience overall. There have been the usual quandries about what to do with things, especially in the kitchen. Configuration means everything in a kitchen
