The Ultimate Guide to Longarm Quilters in the USA and Canada

Your ultimate guide to longarm quilters in the USA and Canada. Find a quilter in your local area, or one that takes mail-in orders.

Finding a longarm quilter isn’t easy. Heck, finding a good babysitter isn’t easy, and they don’t even have to know how to bury threads! But here’s what longarm quilters and babysitters both have in common: they have to earn your trust, because you’re placing a prized treasure in their hands. That’s why I present to you the Ultimate Guide to Longarm Quilters with the greatest attention and care – because you and your quilts deserve the best.

Before we get to the hall of fame, let’s talk about what you should be looking for in a longarm quilter. I interviewed longarm rockstar Jessie Zeigler, of Threaded Quilting Studio, and asked her everything from batting to timeline to cost.

Read An In-Depth Guide to Hiring a Longarm Quilter.

Basic things to think about when hiring a longarm quilter:

  • Location: Most longarm quilters take mail-in orders, but a good local drop-off can be awesome! If there are quilters in your area that take drop-offs, consider having a little meet and greet. You can get a better feel of their style, check out their sewing space and even bring them treats for a job well done!
  • Quilting Style: Get a feel for their aesthetic. Some longarm quilters sew exclusively edge-to-edge, while others specialize in custom design. Once you know what you’re looking for, you can get a better feel for who you’re looking for.
  • Time Frame: You may be flexible and patient with most of your quilting projects, but there may come a time when you need something done FAST! Some longarm quilters have a reputation for lightning turn-around times.
  • Cost: This will vary based on location, skill, quilt volume, materials, personality type, etc... Cheaper doesn't always mean worse, just as more expensive doesn't always mean better. Shop around and find what works for you and your budget.

If you have a favorite longarm quilter that is missing from this list, please leave a comment with their information and why you love them – even if you're the quilter and you love yourself 🙂

  8. Kim Newsome says:

    I love this! I ended up using a longarm quilting service for the first time when I wanted to back a baby quilt with minky because I love the feel of minky and just despise sewing with it. Just out of curiosity, how often do you use a longarm quilter vs quilting on your own, and what usually drives that decision? If you use a longarm quilter, do you typically go back and do some of your signature hand quilting afterwards?

    • Suzy Quilts says:

      That’s a great question. I tend to prefer quilting my own quilts, mostly because I like to start and finish a project before starting another. (I know…very unusual in the quilting world. WIP piles make me nervous.) However, if it’s a large quilt, or a quilt that doesn’t have a deadline attached to its finish, I’ll send it to a longarmer. As I have gotten better at quilting my own quilts, I have used them less and less.

  9. Anne Monceaux says:

    Forever in Stitches, LLC-120 N. Main St. Bluffton , OH 45817. Phone:419-358-0656 http://www.ForeverInStitches.com
    One of the best things about owners Rick and Ruth is their knowledge and love of sharing it. Their shop is a quilt design studio and award-winning longarm center. They are the Innova dealer for Ohio and also provide training on Innova longarm quilting machines.

  10. Andrea Donnan says:

    All American Quilt Co in NASHUA, NEW HAMPSHIRE lets you use their machine. They loaded up my quilt (80×90”) the other day and I meandered around the quilt did only $20! Never gonna badge ever again ! Plus, the quilt was done by me start to finish.

  11. Beth says:

    Hey Suzy, can you define edge to edge for long arm quilting services? I’ve been looking at Longarmers recently, so this is really timely, but am getting confused by the definitions, as well as the pricing, from cost per square inch, plus thread and batting.

    • Suzy Quilts says:

      Edge-to-edge quilting is when the longarm quilter uses the same repeating pattern from one edge to the other. The other option of quilting is a custom design that takes into account the design of the quilt pattern. In a custom design the longarm quilter manually moves their machine, however usually during an edge-to-edge design, the longarm quilter’s machine is able to work without manual guidance. This also explains why edge-to-edge quilting would be cheaper than custom.

      • Leslie Randle says:

        Edge to edge means the design is edge to edge. There is no border design. Edge to edge can be hand-guided, hand-guided pantograph or computer driven. The cost is driven by the time it takes to complete one pass across the quilt. The more dense the quilting multiplied by the larger the quilt, the mire expensive the job.
        I do not have a computer, yet offer edge to edge free-hand or with Circle Lord’s boards.

  12. Judith A says:

    I use Latimer Lane Quilting. I have been very happy with Abby’s work. I also love that I can just send my top in and buy my batting (and wideback minky if I am doing a gift that needs that) directly from her. Her IG name is @alatimer 💜😊

  13. Alison says:

    Hi Suzy! Do you have a local longarm quilter that you recommend? I live in the Chicago suburbs so would love your suggestions. Thanks!

    Thanks for helping me understand that the cost for this service will vary depending on the location the volume of quilt needed. My sister should know about this since she plans to get some done for her twins now that they are almost toddlers. This will prepare her financially since I know that they have lots of loans to pay these days.
