Bernina Q24 Longarm Rental
Ready to take your quilting to the next level, but don't have the space for a longarm at home?! Seams Like Home is bringing you the next best thing!
You can now rent our Bernina Q24 machine to finish those UFO's you have laying around (you know you do!). A longarm specialist will be available to you during your entire rental time to help you load your quilt, answer questions, wind bobbins and change your needle if needed!
Rental hours will be available to you once you've completed your Longarm Certification Class. This class costs $100, but includes all of your supplies for the Certification, as well as a pair of snips, (2) Bernina Q24 bobbins and a handy carrying case for your supplies! Certification dates will now be made by appointment - please feel free to fill out the form on the left side bar to request a date.
We recommend starting out with simple all over designs/design-combinations in order to get the most out of your rental time. Once you become comfortable with our machine we will open up rental of our Pantograph and Ruler kits through a mini-certification class. (There will be a small additional fee to rent the Pantograph/Ruler accessories.)
Rental Time & Fee:
Rental is only available to those who have completed our Longarm Certification Class.
Our Bernina Q24 Longarm machine will be available to you for $25.00 per hour, with an initial rental time of 2 hours. Once you've completed your first rental period, you may purchase time by the hour.
Rental time will be available in a 3 or 4 hour time block Monday - Friday; either 10:30-2:30 or 3:30-6:30 and Sunday from 12:30-4:30.
Quilt Preparation Prior to Rental:
Your rental time will start at the time you have scheduled. Please arrive with your quilt, batting and backing prepared and ready to load onto the machine. (We recommend an extra 4" of backing fabric on all sides.)
You will be responsible for providing your own thread, which will need to be from our Approved Thread List (list coming soon).
You will be responsible for providing your own batting. Coming SOON to SLH will be our Batting by the Yard rack, where you can purchase right off the roll and load it straight onto the longarm.
We recommend that you square your top and back prior to your rental time. If you need access to a larger ironing board or cutting table, you may arrive early to utilize our classroom to prepare your project, however your rental time will start at the scheduled time whether you are ready to load or not.
What to bring with you:
Please make sure you come prepared to quilt and HAVE FUN! If that means you'd like to bring your headphones and iPod to jam out while you quilt, we fully support that!
Please bring your kit with your bobbins and snips (otherwise you'll have to purchase those again), and anything else you want to have while quilting. Pictures of your quilting ideas, slippers or socks if you want to take your shoes off, whatever makes you comfortable!
What NOT to bring with you:
Please do not bring your dog, cat, children or significant other! This is time for you to enjoy the creative quilting process, not worry about what your kid (furry or otherwise) is doing.
If you have further questions or concerns please feel free to contact us, we will do our best to answer them. You may email us at email@example.com or call the shop at 907.677.8790.
