It is with deep sadness that I am announcing the closing of my business, and the end of Andrea Champ | Machine Quilting. There have been big changes in my life lately, and with more on the horizon, the reality is that it is not possible for me to keep longarm quilting as I move forward. As you can imagine, I am already mourning the loss.

And yet… I am so thankful for the past years that I have been so blessed to have longarm quilting be such a big part of my life. I am so thankful for you all: the friends I’ve made along the way. I was able to live my dream, and your patronage and support were part (a huge part!) of what made that possible. I can never thank you enough. Quilting, and by extension this amazing community, will always be a part of my life. For now, it will not be longarm quilting, but who can predict the future?

In the coming days, I will be looking to liquidate some supplies and equipment. I will post the items I decide to sell on my Instagram page. And though I am no longer accepting quilts, I would be happy to refer you to longarmers that will do a fantastic job for you. I’m fortunate to know many, so don’t hesitate to ask.

Thank you for your understanding. Thank you for your years of encouragement, friendship, and support. It has been my privilege to be a part of your quilts’ story, and to share my work with you.

– Andrea
