This month topic:
Business to Business Quilting Support
Accomplish Quilting supports those who are in the quilting business or those that are thinking of quilting as a business.

Dear Innovators and Friends,

Serving businesses has been one of the most satisfying and rewarding jobs for the Accomplish Quilting team. This month we want to thank all the businesses who rely on us for excellent quilting equipment, superior support after the sale, unmatched training opportunities and quality longarm supplies. Not all our customers quilt for profit, but many of our customers have transitioned from other jobs to run their own successful businesses. Many enjoy quilting as a home-based business, side business or a retirement business.

Business to business service has changed over the years. We realize customers do a great deal of research online and so we want it to be easy for you to gather information on our website. Creating videos of new and used machines and training videos give you access to our expertise at your fingertips. One thing hasn’t changed though. We are dedicated to serving you and appreciate your business.

As a thank you we want to help quilting business (and hobby quilters!) expand and maintain their quilting capabilities.
   
  • Do you need another quilting machine to keep up with demand? Consider our SALE on new INNOVA machines or adding a pre-owned machine.
  • Are you ready to upgrade your INNOVA? We have a SALE on upgrades this month. Add Lightning Stitch, PantoVision, Navigator and AutoPilot this month and save on shipping and setup.
  • Does your machine need service? Our tune-up special is for you! Call us to schedule a time when a technician will tune up or repair your quilting machine at one of our three stores.

Whatever your need may be, we'll make your quilting easy!

Kind regards,
Jeff Benedict

*You must call the Michigan store and speak with Kippie who does the scheduling of the techs on the road at all three stores.

DO NOT BRING YOUR SEWING HEAD TO ANY STORE AND DROP OFF UNTIL YOU HAVE SET AN APPOINTMENT WITH KIPPIE.

Gammill machines drip oil and when people bring them into the Tennessee store or the Indianapolis store, we have carpet in the showrooms and the machines can not be brought into the front of the store and across the carpets. Make sure you talk to Kippie for details.
The article below is a repeat this month due to its rave reviews and action taken by our current customers.
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!
If you missed this article last month, it is a must read! We are making it available again this month for those of you who have not protected your machine properly.
Would you be a police officer and not wear a kevlar vest?

Would you drive your car without insurance?

Would you run downstairs with scissors in hand?

Doubtful! So why would you not protect your investment of your machine!

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.

We had our first Quilt INdiana meeting this past Saturday June 9. 18 attended and brought their laughter, friendliness and projects to share with the group.

We started with lunch of turkey sandwiches, homemade potato salad, homemade deviled eggs, chips, watermelon and strawberries and crunchy M&M's. Of course there was lots of talking and laughter during and after lunch. Then we all circled around the quilts displayed and each person introduced themselves and talked about how long they have been quilting. The beauty of the group was the fact of the age ranges and diversity. Some of us even hung around a hour or so later just because we were having so much fun!

Next month we are having a pitch-in! We are providing the hot dogs and buns, condiments, water, soft drinks, plates and silverware. Bring a side dish or dessert. Please post on our FACEBOOK Group that you will be attending and what you are bringing. Not on Facebook? Call the store at 317-478-1422 to add your name to the email list. When signing up please tell the person you are speaking to what dish you will bring.

Come join us next time! We are planning our monthly meeting every second Saturday of the month. Please join our FACEBOOK private group CLICK HERE

Danielle Childers


Quilter of the Month: 
Danielle Childers

   In 2013 Danielle was working as the marketing director for a publishing house, and as a team building exercise, they decided to piece a quilt. She was hooked! She wanted to learn it all! Appliqué, curved seams, foundation paper piecing... Eventually she wanted to quilt on a longarm, too. She rarely makes the same quilt twice. She sees each new quilt as an opportunity to learn a new technique; she says her quilts are rarely perfect, but they’re always fun! All of Danielle’s quilts were quilted on INNOVA machines right here in the Goodlettsville location! We are so happy to have her as a part of our AQTN family and invite you to come see her beautiful collection, which is just a snippet of the beautiful work she has done since she started quilting!
