Over 25 years of longarm experience!

Marie Noah, the owner of Northern Threads, started longarm quilting in 1996. She has quilted thousands of quilts for customers over the years. Many of our customer's quilts have won awards in quilt shows with Marie's quilting. She oversees the longarm staff and their training to ensure the same high standards are met with every quilt.

  • We will notify you by email and text message (if available) that your quilt is ready to ship.
  • You will receive, by email, package tracking details once your quilt ships.


  • Press and square the quilt top - the quilt borders should measure the same size as the quilt’s center for best results. Check both length and width for uniformity. Flared or pinched borders may create puckers or tucks in the finished quilt.
  • Clip all thread tails on the quilt front and check for holes or unsewn seams.
  • The backing should be 4” - 6” larger than the quilt top. If you need to add fabric to the backing to meet the required size, add it asymmetrically. Never sew a frame around the perimeter or include fabric you don’t want to show on the quilt back. We cannot center the backing.
  • Batting, if you provide it, should be 6” larger than the quilt top.
  • Fold the quilt top, backing, and batting individually. Please don’t layer or baste together.
  • If we are binding your quilt, the provided fabric must be selvage to selvage—no lengthwise fabric scraps. Don’t pre-make the binding.
  • Choose two general thread colors, and we will pick the best match in that range.
  • Please select two preferred quilting designs. We will always try to use your first choice, but sometimes, it may not be optimized for your quilt, so we’ll go with your second choice.
  • If we find unsewn seams or similar problems, we’ll make the necessary repairs for up to 15 minutes for $10 without contacting you. If any repairs require more time, we will contact you before proceeding.
