The Quilting Frame & Machine Are Finally Here

Finally they are here! I waited for over 2 weeks for the quilting machine and the quilting frame to arrive. I cant wait for them to be set-up. But because i was not sure how to assemble them, I had to get some assistance from one Mr. Handyman. After watching the DVD and a bit of trial and error, we managed to set up the frame and fit the machine.

Here are the boxes when they arrived, 5 boxes in total. It only took 2 days to arrive but documentation and clearance process at the airport took almost 3 days to complete.

Once set-up, we tried switching on the machine. It didn't work at first but after checking the connection and reading again the manual, the machine finally made a sound, yes it worked!! We did it.

Here is my assistant trying out the machine. It didn't take long before we get ourselves familirized with the machine. Now all we need to do is practice, practice and practice.

See, now she can pose with the machine.

We will be ready to take orders for machine quilting in a few weeks time. Ladies, if you have finished quilt tops that are ready to be quilted but hesitant to quilt them yourself, please get in touch with us. Yes, it is tough to crawl on the floor when we are doing basting. Or the table we have at home is just not big enough to spread the quilt. So worry no more ladies.

We will provide you with the quotation and discuss the details before we proceed. Now you can focus on getting new tops ready either patchwork or applique (which is the most interesting part of all the processes, don't you think?) It is time to proceed with the quilt that you have been wanting to do in a long, long time. And hopefully, you will get to enjoy the quilt much earlier.

We will provide the details on machine quilting service really soon. Or just call us information.
