Grubers Longarm Services

Longarm room announcement:

We are pleased to celebrate the upcoming retirement of Grubers’ owners, Sue and Gene Poser. Congratulations to them on so many years of successful business. We wish them the happiest of retirement activities!

Due to this news, the Longarm Room must stop intake of new quilts/projects on October 31, 2022. Those projects submitted prior to this date should be finished and available for return by the end of the year.

Please do not hesitate to ask Jan or Hayley questions in regard to this. As always, we are pleased to handle the beautiful projects you bring in. Thank you for your trust in this regard.

(There is a possibility that this may be subject to change. We will post if so.)
Please note the price of long arm services has increased to $.0225 per square inch. Intake hours are 10-4:00 PM Monday- Friday

Thanks so much for your business and your patience. 


Your batting and backing must be a minimum of 4" bigger than your quilt top ON ALL SIDES. If your backing is too short it will either be returned to you or we will piece muslin to it at a cost of $15 per seam. If your quilt top is 60"x70", your backing should be 68"x78" or larger. We do not keep trimmings, they go back home with you.
