Have you ever considered taking your finished quilt top to a Long Arm Quilter for quilting, but you don’t know where to begin? If your questions seem to bring more questions, this is the lecture for you! We will explain how to find a Long-arm quilter, suggest questions you should ask, what to expect, types of Long-arm quilting and the overall process. If you have a question, we have the answer!

Lecture included with admission to the quilt show

No registration required

CINDY STOHN is a proud descendant of ingenious makers and garage inventors. She has been working with textiles (and other media) since she was very small. Cindy made her first quilt when she was 15, finishing a quilt made from the scraps of her handmade baby clothes. She began sewing and quilting in a major way over 25 years ago. When she retired from corporate life in 2016 she began long-arm quilting for herself and others. Cindy has won multiple awards at local, regional and international quilt shows for both design and quilting.

PENNY BOESE made her first quilt in junior high with scraps from clothes and leftovers from projects her Mom made. But it wasn’t until 2000 – after a career as a reporter and a university career counselor—that she truly began quilting. From the start, Penny wanted to work her quilts from beginning to end, so the purchase of her Long Arm in 2014 was a natural progression. Since then, Penny has designed her own award-winning quilts and earned many more awards for her custom quilting of client quilts.
