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:
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.
