Let me take this time to tell you a little about myself. I have been
sewing since Junior High School many many years ago. We all like to talk
about our first sewing projects; mine was a a searsucker dress that I
made for a home economic class. I thought it turned out fairly well and
was surprised to find it actually fit. I didn't sew for many years
later. When I first got married, we struggled as a married couple and
found the joy in making my own home decorations from curtains, maternity
clothes, and costumes for the kids. I found a lot of joy and
satisfaction in making my own home decorations. I think I dabbled in
just about everything including tole painting.
About 8 years ago, I hit tough times in my personal life and needed
an outlet for myself. I stopped into a Cozy Quilt'n a new quilt shop
in Apple Valley, California. I was amazed at all the beautiful
quilts and signed up for a quilt class and have absolutely loved it ever
since. I took many classes learning different piecing and quilting
techniques and making many new friends. I was hooked on quilting.
When I made a quilt, I would send it out to be quilted.
Unfortunately, at times I would have to wait along time to be
completed. Therefore; I researched various models of Longarm Quilting
machines for months before I decided to buy mine. I researched all their
capabilities, features, and cost.
I chose a Gammill Statler Stitcher because it is the top of the line
Longarm Quilting Machine. My Statler Stitcher has a computerized
software program combined with hardware that can stitch almost any
design and can intricately quilt a king size quilt in hours. It can be
guided by hand for freemotion work or by the computer for a precise
quilting style. I have been in business now for more than three years
and love learning new techniques and frequently take classes to better
my skills as I truly want my work to reflect my love of quilting.
hope I can be of service to you and share my love of quilting and build
a relationship with another fellow quilter.
Yours in Quilting,
