Jackie and Don Heyne
Jackie's passion about quilting and use of machines to get the job done is where we began.
In 2004 Jackie purchased an APQS Millennium to quilt her own quilts.. One day she thought about others that might want to quilt on a longarm but didn't have the space or the desire to own one so...Jackie considered opening a business to rent out machines so others could easily finish their quilting projects. This is how we began. Now we have four APQS Millenniums for rent as well as classroom space, an APQS dealership, a Janome dealership, an Accuquilt dealership, and various longarm and quilting supplies.
Don retired from the Burlington Northern Railroad in 2011 so now he maintains and repairs the APQS machines as well as is an authorized Janome service tech; cleaning and repairing machines for our customers.
Mission: Teach others to longarm quilt so they can successfully complete their own quilts and be a resource for longarm quilters.

At A Quilting Place we want to help customers have a successful experience in finishing their quilts. Each person that comes through the door to either have a quilt quilted using our quilting service or by quilting themselves is leaving a legacy behind for their family to enjoy for many years to come. We hear stories about how people want to finish this quilt that their grandma made, their mother started or one they are making for that special grandchild. Each is important to us and we want to help our customers succeed at quilting
We Quilted it Ourselves!
We were established in May of 2010 and our first location was at 108th and Q Streets. We outgrew that space and are now comfortably situated at our new location at 11019 I Street, just south of the Oriental Trading Company warehouse. We began with two 14' APQS Millenium Quilting Systems and added a 12' in August of 2011. We now have space to add additional machines if needed.
A Quilting Place also offers logarm support to area quilters, we carry large rolls of batting and offer wholesale pricing for longarm quilters, we promote Glide thread made by Fil-tec, and provide service and parts for APQS machines
