Upstairs Quilting is located in Arlington, Virginia, owned and operated by Denise O’Rear.

I have been sewing my entire life, but started quilting once my children were grown.  One quilt and I was hooked.

After trying out various longarm machines at quilt shows, I decided to retire early and start a longarm business.   Since I’m a computer programmer, I was immediately drawn to the capabilities of the Statler Stitcher.  The name Upstairs Quilting seemed logical since every time someone asked where I was, the answer was:

“UPSTAIRS QUILTING!”

Although, if you ask my dealer who installed my machine, he will tell you its “Thru the Window”, since they had to take the table apart and bring it thru a window.

Upstairs Quilting has taken over the entire upstairs area of my home.  If I’m not here quilting, I’m either with my family or out on our boat.
