Long Arm Rentals by the Hour: Coming Soon!

Once you have completed our Long Arm Certification Course, you are ready to start renting the HQ Amara by the hour. You may load your own quilt or choose Valet Service and for $25 our staff will load your quilt for you. Drop it off ahead of time and go and enjoy a walk along the river or do a few errands while we get it loaded. Our machine is only available for Free Motion Quilting at this time. Choose a date and please pay your registration fee to reserve the machine.

Renter Rules


Each Quilter Quilts at His or Her Own Risk

Although we do our best to keep the machine in good working order, there may come a time when either you don’t quilt perfectly, or the machine doesn’t work perfectly. For example, maybe you made an error when you changed a bobbin, or the bobbin tension spring wore out. It is a machine— it can and does happen. And if it does, the shop is not responsible to rip it out for you or to replace fabric.


The Machines Rent for $25 an Hour

We offer a loyalty program. For every 10 hours of rental time, you will receive one-hour complimentary rental time. You will receive a rewards punch card to track your rental hours.We do not track these cards— if a card is lost or stolen we will not replace it. It’s a good idea to write your name and phone number on your card.



Aurifil thread is included in the rental fee. We supply a large variety of solid color thread. We require everyone to use our threads.

Variegated thread is not allowed until a renter has “graduated”. By this we mean that you have quilted several quilts, and are totally self-sufficient because it is easy to break the variegated thread when you do not have good control over your speed and some other variables.

Reservations Are Required and Are Non-refundable


Renters must reserve a machine in advance of their quilting date. A $25 reservation fee is applied to your first hour. The remaining balance will be paid once you have finished your session. We only book one quilter per day for the machine. If a renter cancels, or cannot make the date for any reason, we do not refund the registration fee, nor do we apply the registration fee to another time slot. Please understand that we need to have extra staff booked to work on rental days and that is why the reservation deposits are non-refundable.


Skill Level: Beginner
Skill Details: You must have taken our Long Arm Certification course before your first rental. If it has been more than 6 months since your training or since you rented the machine, you will need to take our re-certification , one-hour class at a fee of $40.00
Materials Included: Aurifil Thread and a new needle in the long arm machine.
Requirements: Have taken the long arm certification course within the last six months or have rented the machine from us within the last 6 months.
Instructor Bio: Long arm rentals are a self-guided activity but we do expect that you will need our help for your first time renting after the certification class.
This is the registration deposit to hold your rental day. The remaining balance will be paid at the end of the rental session and is an additional $25 per hour. Your deposit will be applied towards the first hour of your rental session.
