Hi! I'm Lindsay - the longarmer behind Arrow Quilting
Although sewing has been something I have done since a teenager, quilting came to me in 2012 when I was looking for a hobby that I could do at home but also (more importantly) something that would connect me with other creative folks.
Nurturing that creative side offered balance to a busy work life.
When my first "big" quilt needed more than me at my sewing machine, I found a local longarmer to quilt it for me. I was enamoured by the whole process and it made me want to be the one to quilt ALL my quilts.
This longarm journey started with machine rental, and I loved it!
In 2020, I took the plunge and purchased my own machine with the plans of "slowly" working towards a paying hobby for "when I retired". I was thinking 3 to 5 years down the road. Just 8 months later, I dove into starting my own longarm business, and retired from a 25 year career in Health Care.
I am so happy to now run my own longarm machine and provide longarm quilting services for the Grande Prairie area.
And now, I am equally as excited to have expanded services for mail in quilts.
My Handi Quilter Infinity 26 ("Finn") can handle any size of quilt, from baby to king!
And, I have now quilted well over 400 quilts!
My dedicated studio space, in our home, is smoke free.
But for those with allergies, I do want you to know that I am kept company by 3 feline divas.
They (Mütsi, Libby & Alice) often can be found napping close by while I work away.
Please know that your quilts are safely stored until it is their turn on the machine.
I really do love all the parts that go into making a quilt, and especially love seeing happy faces when quilts get picked up.
I would love to help your quilt top get turned into a quilt. After all, a perfect quilt is a finished quilt!
(the hubs totally came up with this tag line!)
