Letter from the Top Jeff Benedict, Owner
Dear Innovators and friends,

Part of our service commitment to each of you is to publish a monthly newsletter with information aimed at growing your enthusiasm for longarm quilting. We hope that it also provides you with some insight into how strongly we feel about that commitment. We believe that our service commitment has just as much to do with your success in this endeavor as the brand of machine that you decide to purchase. We sell new Innova machines and believe that they’re the best machine. We’ve also made a lot of you happy with other brands of used machines. So, what are some of the service commitments that have made us a leading dealer of longarm machines?

  1. Installation service that ensures your machine works as expected.
  2. Part of making sure it’s right is making sure you’re trained properly. We provide opportunities for training before installation, at installation, after installation and then even ongoing training opportunities. For the computerized Innova models we offer remote online training. We’ve even been shooting and sharing YouTube videos. Now is that a commitment to training you?   
  3. How about repair service? At the first level we provide troubleshooting and expert advice that with your assistance will solve most of the problems you’ll encounter in minutes. Our team members keep their phones on and stay ready to help you morning through evening 7-days per week. If you’re an Innova owner, you can add to it that you’ll have factory technical support available to you too 24/7/365. Who can beat any of that? Oh yes, we do. We schedule in shop repairs and as a convenience to you offer in home repair service too. Care to substantiate that claim? Follow us on Facebook or visit our website and you’ll see that our service technicians do really spend time out there repairing machines for people just like you. Oh, and I haven’t mentioned spare parts? We keep a load of them in stock and ready just in case your machine’s the one that needs something.
  4. Have an INNOVA model that you would like to try? We have the one you want on display and ready in each of our stores. We can’t imagine how we could have only one or even just two Innova machines on display and still ask you to take us seriously. That’s why each of our stores has models equipped with the Lightning and standard stitch regulation, Pantovision, Navigator, Auto Pilot, the Innova Sitdown model and loads of convenient optional accessories. We feel service commitment means helping you see and buy the machine that is truly right for you.
  5. Have a machine to trade in? As a convenience to you, we’ll make you a solid offer for it in trade toward a new or better used machine. We understand that lots of our customers do not want to market their used machine, bring strangers into their home or wait for their machine to sell. We will not try to convince you to sell it yourself because that’s not really being committed to service is it?
  6. Thinking about starting a machine quilting business? We can offer you business plans, share our expertise and offer solid guidance on where to find information and answers about the IRS Section 179 Deduction, Sales Taxes, business registration and in how to solicit customers for your services. We really want to help you see a clear path to success in the machine quilting industry.
  7. How about financing? We offer several solutions and the expertise to help you find the one that best fits your needs.
  8. Once you have a machine you’ll be needing longarm quilting supplies. We have lots of them in each of our stores and online. All these supplies are time tested quality products to be sure and at great prices.

As you can see, we believe our commitment to service is industry leading. We find that people from near and far who want the best opportunity for themselves to become successful in longarm quilting are reaching out to us to be their longarm dealer. Call or email to us to verify that we are right for you. We hope you will.

Best regards,

Jeff Benedict

URGENT! Is your surge protector doing the job to protect your machine and your investment in your machine? You will want to read the article below!
Can you imagine spending $16,000 to $40,000 on your longarm quilting machine and then lose it in an electrical storm or electrical fire?

We arrive in people's homes every single day only to find that they have purchased a surge protector from their local home improvement store and they plan to install an expensive machine and depend upon that device to protect it and them.

Read the article below that Mark, an experienced AQ tech wrote. Mark is our computer and electronics guru for all of Accomplish Quilting's machines on display and computers that we use for our business.
Mark wrote:

Many customers will ask “how do I know I have a good surge protector”?

Surge protectors and power strips are NOT the same, power strips are generally no better than plugging into a power outlet and if they offer any protection at all it is very minimum.

Surge protectors are rated on a scale of how many “joules” they offer, once these joules are exhausted the surge protector is no longer protecting the plugged-in devices.

The surge protector that we offer at A/Q has 1080 joules which is above what many industry standards call for.

How would someone know if a surge protector is still protecting your equipment? Many surge protectors will come with a light that illuminates when protecting. Our surge protector offers not only a light to show it is working BUT also offers an audible alarm when a lapse in protection is observed. A rating of 50,000 amps spike protection is typically what a whole house would need, our surge protector offers a maximum of 72,000 amps spike protection.

Some protectors will have a lag before protection actually takes affect which will subject your equipment to harmful current. Our surge protector offers < 1 ns (nano-second) response time which is considered the industry standard to look for.

The surge protector we sell also offers a 360º rotating flat plug to position the plug at any angle you desire in outlet. Our surge protector will use a thermal fuse to shut off your system in the event of a fire or an extreme or long- term surge or over voltage instance.

If you are interested in purchasing the protector that we have in stock please click on the picture below and order the protector that will protect your investment.

The Indiana Report
Quilter of the Month: Linda Lupton
Stop into the Indy store to get A SWEET DEAL and test-drive an Innova today!
Our Quilter of the month is Linda Lupton. She has been sewing since grade school.  She made her first quilt with the help of her grandmother-in-law, Emma Lupton, in the late 1970’s.  It was a king size folded star and must have weighed 20 lbs.  

Linda has been longarm quilting for over 12 years.  She is inspired by her quilting peeps, quilt shows, and humor. Her quilt “Gardening, I’d rather be quilting.” Is hanging in the store and it is a hoot.  She loves to miniaturize full-size quilts.  Oddly, the math is her favorite part.   Linda says, “The worst part of longarm quilting is staring at a quilt when you don’t know what to do with it and the best part is after you begin and it is going well.   

Thank you so much Linda for sharing your story with us.

ONE SWEET DEAL sale is on! What does that mean? If you call any of our stores and are interested in an Innova Longarm Quilting Machine and ask for the SWEET DEAL, you will indeed get a sweet deal. We are not talking $20, $100, $500 or even $1,000. We are talking more! So it is to your advantage if you are on the fence about buying a new machine to call the store and ask about this deal.

We have 5 machines set up for demo from Computerized, Hand-Guided to Sit Down. We have a machine that will fit your quilting! Come on in and mention the words I WANT A SWEET DEALand you will get ONE SWEET DEAL! BIG SAVINGS!

The Tennessee Report
The Tennessee Report
The Tennessee Report
 
Pat and Mike are most appreciative for the opportunity to display a few of their quilts as a "Quilting Team of the Month". 
 
Feeddogs Quilting was established in 2017 and was born of combined passions.
 
Pat started quilting nearly ten years ago, participating in block of the month club projects with a local quilt shop. After several years, she expanded her projects to include quilts of her own design and custom quilts for friends and family, eventually being asked to produce commissioned quilts for customers celebrating life milestones as anniversaries and the arrival of newborn family members. 
 
I (Mike), have been admiring the art and artistry of quilts as both items of utility (need) as well as artistic expression and genuine works of craftsmanship. This sentiment was cemented after a trip to the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky where I found some of the most incredible finished works. 
 
When the opportunity to transition from a canine training instructor, a physically demanding career, to operate a longarm quilting machine in support of my wife and her craft, a more technical field, I made the decision to support this full-time. 
 
Together we provide longarm services and custom quilts for customers and nonprofit rescue groups within our community and a portion of every service ticket is donated to assist animals in need within the Middle Tennessee area.

A VALUABLE LESSON FROM
MICHAEL SCHWARZBERGER
OWNER OF ABM INTERNATIONAL

A BIT OF LONGARM HISTORY

Did you know that Michael is the M in ABM, International?

Michael's father Arthur started the company in 1947. Arthur had two sons-Michael and Barry- which is for the B & the M of ABM. Michael's son Neal is the owner of Innova.

Innovation lives and thrives in the Swarzberger family!
Is your thread breaking and you just don't know why?

Does it snap off and fly up to the "take up finger" in the middle of movement?

Tension may be the culprit!

Watch this informative video that we created with Michael so that all of you would learn the right way to adjust your top and bottom tension. Watch it several times to truly understand how to master quilting machine tension.
