Backyard Longarm and Quilting


Backyard Longarm and Quilting is the product of third and fourth generation quilters.  Longarm quilters are not abundant in southern Minnesota so we decided to share our passion of quilting with others in this way.  Backyard uses a Gammill machine equipped with the Statler Stitcher.  This computer technology operates the longarm quilting machine, allowing us to stitch almost any design.  We can stitch any size quilt including a king-size quilt in an efficient time frame.

Candy, the owner, has been quilting as long as she can remember.  It started with helping her Grandma "tie" quilts on a large frame when very young.  Her Mother is an avid quilter and has passed on her knowledge and passion to Candy.  In addition to quilting Candy also enjoys wool applique, gardening, hiking, mountain climbing, camping and anything else that can be done out in the sun!

Brittany, the fourth generation quilter and Candy's daughter, helps out when needed.  Her love of math and numbers has come in handy quite often when piecing quilts together.  She recently received her Masters in Math and teaches at the local colleges.  

We also are proud to carry the full line of American Made Brand fabric.  75 gorgeous colors. 100% US grown premium upland cotton and only $6.99/yard.  Customers are welcome to stop by; please call 507-382-9446 to arrange a time.
