What is longarm quilting? PDF Print E-mail

Long-arm quilting is a process where the quilt top, the batting and backing fabric is sewn together with the help of a long-arm quilting machine. The long-arm quilting system consists of an industrial sewing machine (the head) which is placed on wheels and moving on tracks across the sewing area. The sewing machine head can be operated by hand or by computer.

The quilting system also has a table, the length of which can vary between ten to fourteen feet. This is a flat place where the quilting motifs can be placed for following them with a help of a laser light (like pantograph). The frame of the machine has the rollers which hold the quilt top, batting and backing fabric and help to stretch and advance the quilt during the quilting process.
