Letter From The Top

Happy Holidays friends,
 
When I was a kid, electronic toys were a BIG thing. Realize I am in my mid-fifties and those types of toys were just arriving on the market.   I can remember wishing for my own toy that was electric, flashing and moving on its own, the toy of my dreams.  Finally, after waiting what seemed like days, it was time to open presents.  You can't understand how I felt after playing with my new toy for only a short time and it broke!  Or maybe you can.  I ended up sad and with only the empty box to play with. 
 
Has your longarm purchase been such a disappointment to you like my present was to me?  Are you trudging along with a longarm quilting machine with problems?  Did you buy your machine and the dealer disappeared?  Is there no service available when YOU need it?  Does the dealer offer all levels of training?  Even worse, are you playing with an empty box (machine) with a useless warranty written on it? 
 
It's time for you to have an Innova longarm that's built to quilt WITH the support of Accomplish Quilting.  We offer maintenance, service and repair 24/7/365, support and training in all our stores, great customer service and all quilting products.
 
Wouldn't a new Innova longarm quilting machine just be the best present you could ever give yourself? Time for you to call one of our stores now!  You can make that new machine happen this year!
 
THAT is how we'll make your longarm quilting easy!

Merry Christmas everyone!

  Quilter of the Month:  Judy Tescher

It is a pleasure to present Judy Tescher as our very first quilter of the month at our new Accomplish Quilting Indianapolis store.   Judy has been quilting since 1963 when she started quilting as a 4-H 
project.  Her Grandma was a quilter and she thought that her q
uilts were so colorful and beautiful that they really caught her eye.   She would drive her little cars on the strips on a quilt and use those strips as roads in her little town on top of the bed when she was a child.   Here is a photo of one of Judy's quilts called "Red Rectangle".  It placed 1st at the Hoosier Heritage show in Bloomington in 2015.  Judy has also taught many others the art of quilting.   Thank you Judy !!

Quilter of the Month: 

Sandy Dallmann

Sandy Dallmann is our Tennessee Quilter of the Month.  Sandy has been sewing since she was young, but after watching "How to make an American Quilt" in 1998 became inspired, took a quilting class and has "never sewed another garment since".  Her
 advice to beginning quilters is to not compare yourself to other quilters and keep trying new things, that's the only way you will learn new things; take classes, read books with instruction, and watch videos.
 
Sandy opened her own quilting business 2 years ago, Pumpkin Creek Quilts. She is in the store every month to attend the guild meetings. She handles the photography and composes the beautiful monthly newsletter for the Top Tenn Guild.
