Sisters, with many years of sewing and quilting experience, Diane Hasse (who first sewed on their mother’s treadle sewing machine) and Gail Carlson ventured into After-All Longarm Quilting in 2007.
Combining their talents, they work to provide customers with the finishing touches to complete all customer quilting projects.
At an early age, Diane was intrigued with taking apart her sibling’s “wind-up toys” to see how the mechanics worked.Being unafraid to stand behind any power or carpenter’s tool, her fascination grew into the capabilities of longarm machines and how they might further enhance her own projects.
Gail too is no stranger behind the sewing needle. She began learning to sew and perfecting her craft through many years of 4H projects, fair competitions and dress reviews. Through the years she went on to make her own school and work clothes. At present, quilting projects has become the major focus.
Diane’s creativity, strong business sense, and an “I can do that” attitude plus Gail’s teaching background, and dedication to getting it just right provide a perfect balance to skills. The blend offers each customer more ideas from which to choose and a more personalized finished project.
After much research and “testing” the different long-arm machines available today, they chose the Gammill Longarm with the Statler Stitcher for their business.Offering a variety of patterns that are custom-designed for this particular computer software program, the result is shown in the precision of the stitching. After-All Longarm Quilting has over 8,500 computerized patterns for customers to choose from.The customer’s choice can be made with a pattern or patterns that will enhance the individual characteristics of each masterpiece they have created.
Diane and Gail continue to attend several training classes to increase their skill levels:
-Machine Quilters Exposition Manchester, NH -4 day seminars in longarm techniques -Quilt Center in Janesville WI -introduction to Precision Stitch
-SUGAR event Kansas City KS-Statler owners 2 day sessions in new Creative Studio
