Amara Rental

If you're looking to rent time on a long arm, you're in the right place! We're now offering to rent time on our HandiQuilter Amara stand-up long arm machine with Prostitcher. Take the quilting in to your own hands. 

Training Class
Prior to scheduling your first rental session, you will need to have completed a Long Arm Machine Quilting class. This class will go over everything you'll need to know to run the Amara with Prostitcher. Don't worry, we'll be around to help assist you while you're in the shop quilting as well. This 3 hour class is offered twice per month. Please check our list of available classes for the next class offering. 

Vallet Service
Take advantage of our vallet service! If you bring your quilt in to us at least 2 business days prior to your rental session, we will have your quilt properly loaded and lined up on the machine with your thread choice threaded and bobbin wound and in the machine ready to go! We'll make sure your tension is set and the needle is ready to start quilting when you are. 

Recommendations
We recomend having at least 3 bobbins for the most effecient use of your rental time. You will be able to use our bobbin winder during your session. We also recommend your backing fabric to be at least 4 inches wider all the way around your quilt.
