Everyone is sewing these days. Making quilts, clothes, crafts, masks and surgical caps. It is fantastic! We are sold out of so many sewing machines. I love that people are being creative. Sewing is a fabulous way to make the best of your time making something and sewing helps us get our minds of our troubles.
With all these quilts being created there is a higher need for people to long arm these quilts. What a great time to start you own business and start quilting quilts for people by purchasing a Janome Quilt Maker Pro 18.
You can use the software with the included tablet when you purchase the computerized component – the quilting software programs Pro Stitcher Premium or Art and Stitch that has hundreds of built-in designs. Pro Stitcher Designer is a new quilting software program.
One reason people don’t think of getting a long arm quilting machine is space. The Quilt Maker Pro 18 solves that problem by having a frame that can be smaller if you don’t have the room for the full machine: 4′, 8′ or 12′ as all possible. There is also a two foot attachment to make it a 10′ frame. Most people make twin or queen size quilts, so you don’t really need the full 12′.
I took the plunge and bought one. I’m very excited! Over the next little while I will be posting my adventures, so keep an eye on our Janome Life posts.
If the thought of long arming your own quilts or starting a longarm business sounds exciting, do contact your local Janome dealer to purchase your next adventure. Happy Quilting!
