Is quilting your passion? Do you enjoy creating artistic yet functional textiles that bring not only warmth but visual enjoyment to your family, friends and customers? Specialized quilting machines from Blakeman Vacuum & Sewing allow you to produce your quilted creations with speed and ease.
Quilting machines are specialized sewing machines that have a long arm. The long arm provides a larger, more stable surface area for placing your work-in-progress than a typical sewing machine. This permits you to not only work on quilting smaller blocks but you are also able to easily fabricate entire large quilts. The fabrics are held taut and feed through smoothly on rollers with less worry about having to push the material through or having it shrink or bunch.
Quilting machines not only provide for ease-of-use on a larger working surface, they also have a variety of other features that not only save time but allow you to customize your quilts in any way that suits you. Such features include:
* a wide array of stitch lengths, widths and patterns for practical as well as creative designs
* strong, stable yet adjustable thread tensions for use on everything from delicate to heavy-weight fabrics
* framing for setting and aligning the layers to be sewn together without the hassle of pinning or basting
* handles that allow you to guide the machine along the fabric
* computerized systems that give you access to stored designs as wells as allowing you to adjust settings with a touch
Quilting machines bring the design and production of your quilts to a new level. Whether you are in business producing quilts for customers or if quilting is a passionate hobby that allows you to give to those around you, a new quilting machine provides the speed and ease-of-use that allows you to effortlessly construct utilitarian or artistic quilts or quilted creations.
