Longarm Quilting FAQs

For the longarm frame model (4’ x 12’), you’ll need a room that’s a minimum of 8’ x 16’. A sit-down model (expandable up to 36” x 72”), on the other hand, will fit in a typical, 6’ x 12’ sewing room.

Our first choices are the Glide and Quilter’s Select brands. Omni thread is also a good option.

  • Longarm quilting saves time. It’s much speedier than traditional machine quilting. 
  • Less fatigue and better stitching than domestic machine quilting.
  • Different methods of quilting can be done on both of these machines. For example, free motion quilting and ruler work quilting.

Sit-down quilters work well for smaller projects like hot pads, wall hangings, table runners, etc. They can also accommodate up to a king-sized quilt; however, you must keep it rolled up as it is heavy. If you choose a frame model, you can delve into the world of computerized quilting, which opens up even more quilting options.

Yes, indeed!

The BERNINA Q series longarm machines are very easy to maintain because they only need a drop of oil on the hook when you start quilting, and then after every two or three bobbin changes. The exact oiling spot can be seen on this “How To” video. In addition, ensure that the hook area is always free of any lint when you change the bobbin.
