Pre-Loved Machines Available!

November 13, 2019

So you'd love a Longarm Machine but as some of our customers say "It's a considered investment". 

From time to time we get in some lovely longarms looking for a new home. It may be because their owner has just upgraded or a change in circumstances means that space is needed for something else or down-sizing. Whatever it is, this is a great opportunity for you to pick up a more attractively priced machine. If there is warranty left on the machine it will transfer to the new owner.

Click here to view the latest machines that are available.

Update 1st December 2019 - Three out of the four machines have sold - just one lightly used Sweet SIxteen is currently available.

If you miss out this time but would like to go on our new mailing list for seconduser machines, be the first to know - click here to sign up.  If you are already on our Newsletter you can update your preferences and add the machine or machines you are interested in.

Mancuso World Quilt Show - Best Use of Colour

August 19, 2019

We were absolutely delighted to see a number of UK quilters receive awards at the 2019 Mancuso World Quilt Show recently. Lynda Jackson co-ordinated the UK quilt entries this year, after Christine Porter had been doing it for many years.


We were even more delighted to see that Carole Wood had won the prize for Best Use of Colour. You can read more about Carole's Quilt - Chrysler Revisited on our blog post. Carole discusses her inspiration, design process and quilting designs and threads.


Carole quilted Chrysler Revisited on her Handi Quilter Sweet Sixteen. Well done Carole!!

Longarm Quilting Services

August 19, 2019

If you're looking for a longarmer to quilt your quilt, what things should you discuss in advance, how do you pick a design and...how do you pick a longarmer!?

In this blog post we'll talk about some of the things that we recommend you consider when you're sending your quilt to be quilted. 

Of course, you could always look at finishing your own quilts - there are a few places where you can hire a longarm machine.


If you're a quilt shop owner and could make room for a space 8' x 8' in your shop give us a call. We'd love to discuss with you how a rental programme works and how the shops that have done so are increasing customers into their shop and getting more benefits than just having more customers finishing their quilts! Call Liz or Pete on 01386 462218 or email quilt@pinholequilting.co.uk

Longarm Classes

Our Foundation Workshop gives our Handi Quilter customers a really good base on which they can develop their longarm quilting skills. Read on to find out more about why we believe purchasing a longarm is only the start of your Longarm Quilting Journey.

The topics covered include setting up the frame, bobbin tension, top tension, changing the thread and needles, some needle and thread theory and then...lots of play time on the machines. With one machine per customer we have time to really get our customers comfortable on the machines.

Further classes and other learning opportunities includes our Academy in April 2020. This and our other events provide unparalleled learning opportunities in the UK. No other manufacturer offers you the range and number of classes that Pinhole Quilting offer. 

So, if you're thinking of purchasing a longarm, contact us to arrange a demonstration. We allow 1-2 hours for our demonstrations (but in reality it's as long as you need) so that you have lots of time to try out the different machines, try our optional extras such as quilting from the back of the machine, rulerwork if that is of interest, etc. Plus we have comfy sofas where we can take time out to have a good chat about what you'd like to do with a nice cup of capuccino or tea. 

Call us or email us now.

Email: quilt@pinholequilting.co.uk  Call: 01386 462218 or 07801 866300 to arrange a convenient time.
