Loftworks Quilting began as a dream of owner, Jeanette Sapp, while she worked on her daughter’s graduation quilt.  Here’s her story…

My grandmother, Helena Wacker, was a wonderful seamstress and quilter.  Like many women of her generation, she made quilts out of scraps from clothing projects she had worked on.  My sister and I inherited our grandmother’s love of sewing and supplied her with an abundance of fabric scraps, which she used for quilts for all of our relatives.  I am fortunate to have four quilts made by my grandmother.

Daughter’s Graduation Quilt

I first learned to quilt when my daughter requested a quilt for her graduation.  One quilt and I was hooked!  I took several classes at local quilt shops and learned lots of techniques and patterns.  After making several quilts, however, I would often get discouraged because of the time involved in hand quilting.  Like many other quilters, I not only had a stash of fabric, but I also had a lot of UFOs (unfinished objects) in my closet.  After years of being in the corporate world and following my husband’s career moves, I made the decision to follow my dream and start a long-arm quilting machine business.  I definitely took a leap of faith and trust that this endeavor would work, and it’s been worth it!

I want to help you finish your UFOs.  It’s up to you whether it’s an all over, edge-to-edge or custom design.  All of my quilting is hand-guided on an American Professional Quilting System (APQS) Millennium machine.  I use So Fine, #40 or #50, three-ply polyester thread and have a large selection of colors to choose from.  Please visit the blog and patterns section to see examples of quilt stitching and designs.

I am in this business because I love to quilt, and I appreciate what quilts provide – beauty, comfort, and special memories.  I look forward to helping you.
