Hard-to-Find Machine Accessories & Parts
As older sewing machines are salvaged, we remove usable parts to recycle. Check with us . . . We may have just what you need.
Do you have quilt tops that you would like to turn into functional or decorative quilts? We can help. Bring us your quilt top and desired backing fabric and we will be glad to quilt it with free-motion or digital designs on our Platinum 3000 Long Arm quilting machine. Our store carries quality Warm and Natural batting and 100% cotton Signature quilting thread.
If you feel like doing the quilting yourself, our Platinum 3000 Long Arm quilting machine can be rented after 2-day certification training is complete (for first-time users/renters). Once you get certified, the machine can be rented any time as long as there is opening in the calendar. Please see details below on this page.

Longarm Certification and Rental
Our certification consists of a 2-day class. During the first day a 3-hour class will cover basic operation of a Husqvarna Viking Platinum 3000 Long Arm Quilting machine followed by a completion of a project on the second day to practice and solidify information learned. Please note certification class is not a class designed to learn how to free motion quilt, this class strictly focuses on machine operation, computer controls, and maintenance.
Cost of certification for 2 days is $45 per person. We require a minimum of 2 students for class to take place. Students are encouraged to purchase special quilter zippers to create leaders that help attach ready quilt top, batting and backing to the quilting frame. Made in advance leaders with zippers help to speed up your setup time, which means you will have more time to quilt!
