Itsy Bitsy Quilting 


Long-Arm Rental

For those folks who want to finish their own quilts, we rent time on our Millie stitch regulated machine. You can finish a quilt the size of a doll quilt up to a king-size spread.

Before renting a machine, you will need to complete a certification class, at no cost to you. This is where you will learn how to thread the machine, wind the bobbin, layer the backing, batting, and quilt top properly on the machine, as well as how to operate the machine. 

Come and see how fun, easy and rewarding it is to finish your quilts on a long-arm!

How much does machine rental cost?

Rental is either by the hour at $16 or you can prepay 7 hours for $100. All rental has a two-hour minimum. Loading your quilt is free of charge. 

What is included in the rental fees?

Loading your quilt is free of charge. Basic color threads for bobbin and top threads included.

Session include one needle. Additional needles may be purchased separately.

What is not included  in the rental fees?

Custom colored  thread will not be included in your rental fee. Thread charts are available for you to chose from. Cone thread is required. We need 7 business days notice to special order colors in for your quilt before your rental. 

Batting and backing is not included.

How much time should I reserve?

Below is a table for estimated completion times based on the size of your project, using a large, open design. Keep in mind the density of your quilting as well as your experience level should both be factored in when reserving your time. We need to have an idea of what size quilt you will be long-arm quilting so we can schedule your time.

Baby or Lap Quilt - 1 to 2 hours

Twin Quilt - 2 to 3 hours

Full Quilt - 2 to 3 hours

Queen Quilt - 2.5 to 4 hours

King Quilt - 3 to 4+ hours

What if I can’t finished my session?

If no one is scheduled after your session, you may extend your time as needed and within our regular business hours.

What if I can’t make my reserved time?

We request 24 hours notice for any cancellations to avoid  a $30 fee. This is because someone else may have wanted to use the machine on your date and could not because you booked the time.
