Welcome to Elegant Stitches Longarm Quilting & Gammill/Statler Machines

About Us

We are currently under Construction Please stop back!

 Darla established her love of needlework at a very early age while growing up in West Michigan. Her passion grew over the years while sewing everything from clothes for her grandchildren to custom draperies and design.

In the early 90's Darla moved with her husband to Canada and was introduced to the Gammill Quilting Machines.  It was love at first sight.  She bought her first model in 2003, a Classic non-stitch regulated machine, and has upgraded twice since then. She is now using two Statler Stitcher Optimum models and a Vision 2 22-10

Darla is also a National Award winning Quilt Artist, she has also won several awards for her quilting.

Custom Orders

I am a Longarm quilting service.  I do custom quilting as well as edge to edge.  I have a two week turn around time on my edge to edge quilting service, with hundreds of patterns to choose from.  I do quilt consultations by appointment only.

I also am a Sales Representative for Gammill/Statler Quilting Machines for At the Heart of Quilting.  

The New Elevate by Gammill

The Elevate™ is an entry-level computerized quilting system for Gammill machines. Quickly place, edit and quilt edge-to-edge and block patterns with the Elevate’s easy-to-use tablet.

Pattern Manager

Integrated pattern management allows you to browse, search, and add keyword pattern tags. The Elevate comes with more than 500 free patterns available for download from the Gammill PatternCloud™. Use the Cloud to browse, shop and purchase new patterns. Plus, use Gammill’s CreativeStudio® 7.0 software in stand alone mode to edit single patterns that you can load onto your Elevate tablet.


Select from block, single row, or edge-to-edge quilting. Create pattern boundaries following the on-screen prompts. Browse the Elevate’s pattern manager to select and import the perfect pattern.


Edit the pattern, adjust the margins, increase and decrease repeats and rows, and adjust spacing between patterns. Use resize, reposition, nudge, auto-fit, rotate, delete,
and flip to achieve your desired look.


Use the virtual stitchout feature to watch the path your machine will take before it even starts. Simply hit start to begin quilting your perfect pattern.
