Benefits of owning a long arm quilting machine
- Fast quilting – with a long arm quilting machine you can literally quilt a king sized quilt in a day. Just think of all the unfinished quilt tops you have sitting around waiting for you to find the time to quilt them. I know I personally have at least 20 quilt tops sitting around, some have been waiting to get quilted for over 10 years! With a long arm quilting machine you can quilt a baby quilt in a few hours! Think of all beautiful quilts you could finish if they could all be quilted in a day or so.
- Even stitches – Many long arm quilting machines come with a stitch regulator. If you are worried about your skills and uneven stitches the stitch regulator will make everything okay. Your stitches will come out beautifully smooth and even. Even stitches give a quilt a really professional look.
- Extra income – If you are looking into purchasing a long arm quilting machine but the cost is holding you back you could start your own part time quilting business that will more than pay for the quilting machine. Working from the comfort of your own home in your spare time and with a something you love – quilts can be a dream come true!
