Letter From The Top

Dear Friends, 
What's a man to do when droves of experienced longarm quilters recognize his team's service and the machine they are selling is far better than what they have now?  He buys a 10,000-square foot building to refurbish and display the used machines for sale that were traded for his team's new Innovas.  That's what he does! 
Then what happens when even more people bring their used machines to get a new Innova?  He rents a massive display area at the Kentucky Oaks Mall, Paducah, to display and sell those freshly serviced machines.  That's what happens!
So, are you looking for a quilting machine that works right for $4000?  $8,000 or $10,000?  We have what you need.   Please visit our used machine page, give us a call or come see us soon in Michigan, or Tennessee, or maybe this weekend in Rosemont, Illinois, or how about the end of April in Paducah Kentucky?
Oh, and we'll always have some new Innova longarms close by too.  But let me warn you: you're going to be awfully tempted to jump into the big leagues and buy a new Innova right out of the gate.  When you do, you'll join the experienced quilters and newbies thanking us for making their choice and their longarm quilting easy!
Best regards,
Jeff Benedict


Accomplish Quilting - Quilting Challenge!
AQ is hosting a quilting challenge 
with the theme of "Hidden Treasures"
The challenge theme will be in the quilting! 
This is a wholecloth challenge - use any fabric, any thread (type or color(s)) and quilt your wholecloth in any way that you wish. 
No seams - how great is that!?
  1. As the focus is on the quilting, we have chosen not to allow embellishments.
  2. There is no specific shape requirement.
  3. The quilt must have a perimeter between 120 and 160 inches.
  4. There is no requirement for fabric type or color.
  5. The quilt must be turned in by August 16, 2017 to Accomplish Quilting (Goodlettsville or St. Joseph) with the registration form.
  6. Once turned in, the quilt will be on display in one of our locations for the months of September and October.
    (1 month at each location)
  7. Please include a label on the back of your quilt. Your name on the label will be covered during the voting time frame.
  8. Voting for each store will begin on September 1, 2017 and end on September 30, 2017.
  9. There are two categories of quilting - computerized and hand guided. Any quilt with any portion of the quilting done using a computerized machine will have to place their quilt in the computerized category.
  10. The winner of each category will be announced September 30th at the close of business and will receive a $150 gift certificate.
