DIY quilting – Hire our long arm quilting machine

Want to quilt your own quilts? We now have a Handi Quilter “Simply Sixteen” longarm on a “Little Foot” frame available for you to rent in our shop.

It’s not that scary to use, in fact it’s a lot of fun! Why not pop in & ask for a demo? Just ask for “Long Neck Sally”, yes that’s her name!

It’s available 7 days a week by appointment when we don’t have a class or weekday evenings. (Vanessa will be in the shop sewing if you need help)

If you have not used a longarm before, you will need to complete an introductory class first on how to operate the machine.

The cost to hire:

      • $55 for one session (up to 3 hours – quilt a small quilt). Vanessa will be with you for most of the time for your first rental.

or you can pre-buy your time allocation to use in blocks:

      • $145 for 8 hours (complete a large quilt). This allocation must be used in 6 months.
      • $240 for 14 hours (you’ll complete a few projects with this time allocation). This allocation must be used in 6 months.
      • $320 for 20 hours. This allocation must be used in 12 months.

Remember, if you don’t want to quilt your project yourself, we can finish it for you (depending on design) or there are other longarm quilters in northern Tasmania who do beautiful work that we are happy to recommend.
