Why Choose Us?

These days there are many brands of longarms to choose from, and most if not all, will produce a great stitch - but at what cost? Is it really necessary to spend $20K for that stitch?

I think not!

And, I've never heard about Eclipse Longarms...

Several years ago, we bought our 1st longarm, and it sat for a year, unused, until we got a robotic system for it...we've not looked back since.

Then in 2017 we met the Maker of the Eclipse, (Art Bentley) and were amazed...the quality stitch is there at an amazing price! 

You see, Art was part of the original HandiQuilter team & built the 1st three HandiQuilter machines! So, we've been there, all along...

And much has changed since then & the Eclipse is an advanced machine with little to no required maintanence, with a great warranty to boot!

"I saw the Eclipse a year or so ago in Paducha, and tested many others, but this one just 'felt right' and it has performed perfectly."

About Us


The Longarm Marine

Doe & I go way back...some 15 years or so...and she has been sewing forever. We also have a special needs daughter, Cappy, who is 27 and loves to color!

I joined the Marine Corps in '73 and was what is termed a 'Hollywood' Marine, as I was stationed in El Toro, CA.

After my enlistment, I spent most of my life in the restaurant & hospitality business. I've owned several restaurants along the way & learned how to sharpen knives when I was 10 yrs old. Later, after started a sharpening business and got involved with local fabric shops.

Somehow, Doe got me interested in the Longarm side of things and now I am also now know as “The Longarm Marine".

We Service The Continental USA

We also operate a longarm quilting service for others not yet in a position to purchase a longarm. Our quilting studio is always bursting at the seams with a variety of projects.
