It’s because there are only a few Longarm Quilters out there. This is primarily due to the expense of the Longarm Quilting machine. These machines cost anywhere from $30,000 to $45,000 dollars. These machines are anywhere from 10 feet to 14 feet long and require approximately 3 feet on all sides with 5 feet of comfortable working space in the front of the machine.
