Gari Jones uses her Longarm sewing machine to stitch intricate patterns on a customer’s quilt at Quilty Pleasures Studio in Geyserville. Gari Jones, 51, learned to sew from her mom but 17 years ago, when she saw a quilt at the Sonoma County Fair, she decided to take it to the next level. She learned to quilt, then spent much of her savings learning how to use a computerized Longarm sewing machine to finish quilts by sewing together the top quilt, batting and backing.
I love taking my quilts to Gari (and Margo). They do excellent quilting. Will continue to use them even though we have moved out of the area. Gari, I believe you are the best quilter I know, that is why I continue to mail you my work for quilting. Thanks so much and I will have another quilt ready soon! — K.P.V.
When People ask me who quilts my quilts, I love being able to share with them Gari, The Longarm Lady! She takes my patchwork and turns it into a masterpiece quilted with Love. — M.R
