Quilting can be a very solitary activity. But isn’t everything better when you can do it with a friend? Here at Quilted Joy, we have five longarm quilting machines that we rent. We will often get pairs of ladies that come in together to quilt. They each have their own machine, and they’ll chat and […]
We had a group of four friends drive all the way from Bardstown, KY to take their rental certification together. This meant we had a full house with almost every machine running! Normally I won’t have this many quilters in for the certification. I learned pretty quickly that with all the new skills we’re covering, […]

Plus, the classroom was filled with a mini-group having fun spending the day chatting and sewing together. Liz made this great modern chevron quilt using the […]
Saturday we had another Longarm Certification class and these two ladies brought in their own quilt tops to finish during the class. They did a GREAT job! Can you believe they’d never used a machine before. Both used the APQS Millennium on Bliss. Colleen chose an orange peel design for her cute as a button […]
The APQS showroom was super busy this Saturday. We had two new renters getting certified and one renter finishing up a quilt she’d started a couple of weeks ago. Be sure to “Like” our Facebook page as I normally post more photos over there. Cynthia finished up her rainbow quilt on the Millennium using the […]
