An Amazing Five Years


It is with heavy hearts that we are announcing that we have made the difficult decision to close Hello Stitch Studio. We are so proud of what we have accomplished over the last 5 years and the community that has been built through the studio. Unfortunately, although we were able to hold on through the pandemic, we have been unable to come to terms with our landlords to extend our lease and will be closing our physical location at the end of February.

The Good News

Although we won't have a physical studio location, we will continue to offer online classes and longarm quilting services.


Thank you!

We want to especially thank everyone who has believed in our mission and supported us. While endings are bittersweet, we are hopeful that the seeds we've planted in the sewing community will continue to grow and flourish in new and exciting ways in the future.

LONGARM QUILTING SERVICES

Sorry, unfortunately we are fully booked and have temporarily paused taking reservations in anticipation of moving the longarm. We will re-open in the spring.

We will need to change our drop-off and pick-up locations and times. We will still specialize in edge to edge quilting services and will offer a broad selection of patterns and thread colors.

No, we will be relocating the longarm to a space that doesn’t support longarm rental.


Is there someplace else that rents longarm time?

We are not aware of any place that currently offers that option. Please let us know if you find a place that will so we can let others know about it.
