New Statler Testimonial

I took the plunge and bought a Gammill Statler in March 2016. It was delivered on March 22nd and has been humming along for 7 months now. We have quilted around 130 customer quilts in that time period and learned so much! We are fortunate to have the machine in a quilt shop, although we are 2 separate businesses. I am so amazed with our quick success and am delighted with this machine!

Sewing and Stitchery Expo, March 2-5, 2017 at Puyallup, WA

This is a show you really don’t want to miss!  It’s on a lot of people’s “bucket list” for good reason.  There is a lot of educational opportunities, and many one-of-a-kind vendor booths.  It is not a “quilt show”, but the people you will meet in the aisles represent all manner of fiber and textile arts.  If you haven’t been to it before, you really must experience this completely unique show.

Of course, we’ll be there with our Gammill machines and we’ll be having lots of fun =)

Soooo…. How much can I earn by Longarm Quilting?

Soooo…. How much can I earn by Longarm Quilting?  Is this a $25,000 per year business or a $150,000 per year business?

The question comes fairly often from folks that are in the beginning stages of planning to open their own business, and although everyone phrases it differently, the bottom line is that they KNOW a friend or two who is earning a living by Quilting, and they KNOW how much they have to write the check for when they pick up a finished quilt, but since it’s not socially acceptable to ask your friend “how much did you earn last year?” they are really wondering how much they can earn.

Here’s a chart that can help you figure it out.  Keep in mind that the maximum number of quilts that a Statler by Gammill with one operator can reasonably handle is 12-16 per week, if you plan to go beyond that you’ll need either an employee or a second machine:

Tired of stress and headaches, the Statler by Gammill saved my business and my sanity!

Just wanted to send you a note that I normally don’t do. I had been a longarm quilter for some time and had difficulty with a certain machine. The issues with the machine had grown as my business was growing. Had really thought about getting out of the business because I didn’t think the headache and stress was worth it if this is what I have to deal with on a daily basis.
I looked into a Gammill but thought the cost was high and what if I’m still in the same place. Looked up the Gammill online and found Jan here in the area who when I called her to find out about the machine told me to “just come over and use her machine to see what she was talking about.” I said I had a complicated quilt to do and if that would be alright. Jan said yes and asked the size and I told her what blew me away was what happened next – I told her it would take at least 8 hours to do and she said “you’re wrong, I say 4”. She was right. We set up the quilt and let it rip and I do mean rip. It was just moving, quiet, and loved when a thread did break she showed how easy it was to get back in place and start stitching.
I still wavered for about 3 weeks due to the cost of the machine. My wife basically said either get the new machine or just get out of the business. So I bought the machine and have not looked back. In fact I haven’t had a problem since the day it has arrived. Here is the best part Andrew you always had a answer for me by text or phone every time I called, which was not always Monday – Friday. This meant the most to me in the beginning to now.
I have been so busy that I have not been able to take the free classes that are offered yet. The work load that I am keeping up with would not be possible if I still had the old machine. I even shattered a needle and the machine just keeps going strong. Its quiet, love the slowing into a tight turn and the acceleration out of a point, the perfect stitches, the new software version makes so many things easier than before etc etc etc.
I see my self with this machine for the long term no matter what level my business grows to and know that it will keep going. That’s speaks volumes with me. I hope you can understand what this machine has done for my business and for me personally. I go into the studio every day just knowing that when I turn on that machine it will do a great job and I will have happy clients. Its just that good.
Sincerely
Keith

Thank you to all of our amazing customers!

Thanks

It has always been my dream to be able to be a stay-at-home Mom.  The Statler has given me the ability to do that, but help with the family finances as well.  God-willing it will allow me to be a stay-at-home Grandmother as well. Thank you so much!
