When putting zippers on your quilt top, put the pins in but leave them open. Once you’re done with the edge, you can close the pins all together. This saves a bit of time on a tedious task.
Did you know that Louise taught math for many years and loves numbers? In celebration of the day and the month (both 5s!, get $2x5 ($10) off a studio session between May 5 and 25. Plus, if you come in on a day that is a multiple of 5, get an extra $5 off, for a total of $3x5 ($15).
This offer can be combined with the Flower Power deal.
Since we’re closed on the 15th, we will offer the extra $5 on the 16th instead.
Heather S quilted this beauty on the Vision. The pattern is her own creation. Would you believe this is her first attempt at free hand and custom quilting?
Quilter Sharon P created this yummy fruit salad quilt out of scraps of reds, oranges, and yellows. She quilted it on the Statler using an all-over meander pattern.
Quilter Pam P. used the Statler’s Squares and Swirls pattern on this beautiful mix of blues, browns, and greens. The swirls soften the angularity of the blocks and provide interest in the large, single-fabric squares. A lovely outcome!
April showers bring May flowers. What do May flowers bring? $10 off if your quilt contains flowers or if you choose a flower pattern. Applies to both studio reservation blocks and quilt drop-offs. Valid May 1-31.
Birthday Contest: Email us your first and last name and the day and month of your birthday to be entered in the contest. We will choose five random days, and the person with the closest birthday to each selected day will get to select an Anne Bright pattern for the Statler. We will also be periodically offering other birthday-related specials, so make sure to reply today! Contest entries close May 15.
Are they asking you what you want for Mother’s Day (or Father’s Day)? Can they never decide what to get you for your birthday? Now you have an answer–a gift card for Burlington Electric Quilters!

Laurena’s Longarm Quilting is opening under new management on April 4, 2017. You’ll still enjoy the same longarm machines and the same cozy studio, but with a new person helping you accomplish your quilting dreams – Louise Rains.
Our new name is Burlington Electric Quilters – a name that should give a large spark to your creativity! We’re still at the same location, same phone number, and website.
As your new manager, I’m so excited to welcome you and to continue with the fun and joy that quilting brings to us all. I have been a longtime renter, and look forward to meeting you all and assisting you with your beautiful projects. Just a bit about myself – I was born in Salt Lake City, UT, and moved to Billerica, MA, in 2002. I have a husband who supports my stash without too much complaint, a little dog named Stormy, and a bicycle or two that I love to ride. My all-time favorite quilting pattern is Popcorn! I have been working in Boston for the past 8 years, but won’t miss that morning commute, especially when the weather is cold and blustery.
For the month of April, all appointments for quilting time receive 15% off our new rates, which are:
* Mini (3 hrs) $75
* Half day (4 hrs) $100
* Full day (max 8 hrs) $175

See you soon!
An opportunity has arisen and I am moving on to a new job. I’ve made this difficult decision after significant consideration and I would like to share with you what will happen at Laurena’s Longarm Quilting in the next couple of months.
I am offering the business for sale until February 17, 2017. Please telephone me at (781) 229-0734 if you are interesting in acquiring a flourishing business with a growing clientele of loyal, talented quilters.
Barring a sale, March 18, 2017 will be Laurena’s Longarm Quilting’s last day of business.
I will work with subscribers individually to use or refund your prepaid hours.
Future classes are cancelled. If you signed up for classes in January, February or March and have already prepaid, I will refund your class fees.
I will accept a limited number of quilts for edge to edge quilting in February. All quilts must be picked up by March 18.
LLQ will be open by appointment only, Wednesdays through Saturdays.
Laurena’s Longarm Quilting grew from one machine to a multi machine rental and quilting business. The thriving community of machine quilters in the New England area have been the cornerstone of this growth. I’m grateful for the support you’ve given me over the years.
Wish me well in my future endeavors!
We will be closing for the Thanksgiving holiday at 2pm Wednesday November 23rd and reopening at 9am on Tuesday November 29th.
We hope you enjoy the holiday with family and friends. Be sure to have a quilt handy for the nap that inevitability follows that big turkey dinner!
