Long Arm Quilter Recommendations

A few months ago we sent an email asking for long arm quilter recommendations. This is a listing of your responses. Thank you to our members who sent recommendations. If we missed someone you think should be included please send your recommendation to Jeff Puckett, who will add it to this list when it appears on our guild website.


From Janet Mullen:



8055 Greystone Way, Silverdale.  


Angela did a great job on Janet’s blue heron and will quilt Laura Heine quilts. 

(BTW, Janet is looking  to buy a working treadle sewing machine.)


From Yvonne Jones:



Sunshine Quilt Company, in Fircrest


She has quilted three of Yvonne’s quilts and she was very pleased with the results. Jo does not do custom quilts. She can be found on facebook page and she has a website.


From Jo Woodward:



Custom long arm quilter. No computerized patterns, 3 cents per square inch. Owner supplies quilting thread..She lives in SeaTac but Jo has offered to transfer your quilt to/from a meeting since Jo lives that direction.


Trisha Dolge recommends:

Jody is an award winning quilter. Some of her long arm work has travelled around the US. She always pays attention to what her customers would like and offers advice if a client has questions. (A quilt she did for Delaine had over twenty thousand stitches, won numerous awards and was shown in several quilt shows around the country.) Jody also won awards at the Houston show for one of her own quilts. 


Barb Archut and Kathleen Eagan recommend:

Nancy does edge-to-edge only. Kathleen writes, “Her work is beautiful.” Nancy previously owned, Nancy’s Quilt Shop, which we were sad to see close. Instead she is now focused on long arm quilting.

New Etsy Fabric Shop in Gig Harbor!

Submitted by Cathy Stone


During our Saturday Sew, I had a chance to talk to new member Cindy Thomsen. She has organized a new EPP (English Paper Piecing) group within the guild, and I learned that she has a fabric shop on Etsy!

As soon as I got home, I checked it out and encourage you to do so as well. Search for HarborClothShop and you will find her. She has about 700 bolts of fabric, plus notions and other fun things. I placed an order on Sunday and picked it up at her house on Monday. I think it is so important to support our guild members in any way we can, so be sure to check her out before heading out on Hwy 16 to a brick and mortar shop.
