Save Time With Our Longarming Services In Valparaiso, IN

Quilts are beautiful and expressive pieces of artwork. They are also a considerable investment in time and effort – especially when using bigger, bulkier quilting fabric. Even if you enjoy the old-fashioned way of quilting, you’ll no doubt find some use of a longarm quilting machine like ours. Here at Forever In Stitches, LLC, we’re committed to making quilting an enjoyable project and process for quilters of all skill levels. Should you decide you need some assistance with your quilt, allow us to provide you with the best longarming services in Valparaiso, IN.

We offer the following types of longarming services [Please refer to the corresponding web-pages, above, for more information]:

  • Standard Longarming Services - This is where you bring your top, etc., to us and we assist you in deciding the patterns [we have over 5,000 patterns in our library] and we do the work.

  • Mail-In - This is similar to our Standard services except you mail it in and we communicate via phone, text, and emails. 60% of our business is mail-in from our own Indiana as well as Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Kentucky, Florida, Mississippi, and Michigan and points beyond.

  • DIY [Do-It-Yourself] Longarming - No class is necessary. It is all "on-the-job-training" under the guidance of master quilters Ruth or Rick Grihalva.
