Meet Marcia Tong

She’s the new face in the South Carolina showroom!

We are so excited to have Marcia Tong join our Greenville Showroom Team! She’s a mom, a grandma, a quilt piecer, and Quilts of Valor fan. And best of all—she loves Innova longarms!  We first met Marcia when she was a renter, and as we got to know her we found her to be so friendly. She’s a real go getter, so we simply had to ask her to work for us full-time!

Michelle says, “We like her and are sure you will, too! Plus, she keeps us in cookies!”

When we first opened our Greenville Showroom, Suzanne DiCarlo asked if we would like to be part of the Quilts of Valor (QOV) longarming team in the Upstate where she has been coordinator for a number of years. She soon was coming into the showroom to volunteer and to help keep our Navigator running to quilt numerous Quilts of Valor.

She fit in so well that we asked her to stay, and she became a part-time employee. Since then, she has mastered every facet of the showroom to become an invaluable member of our team. This past February, she spearheaded the QOV and charity quilting projects at our annual Birds of a Feather longarm education event.

Suzanne and her husband are both Texas natives, and they have decided it's time to move back to be near family. They have found a new house with a perfect spot for the Innova Autopilot system Suzanne will be getting so that she can continue to longarm her precious Quilts of Valor.

We are planning a drop-in celebration for all to come by and express their good wishes for Suzanne's next adventure. We'll send out an email when the date is set.

It's too hard to say goodbye, she will be missed too we'll just say, "See you next year at Birds of a Feather!"

The Longarm Network is proud to be a sponsor of The Richmond Quilters’ Guild 2017 Richmond Quilt Show to be held at the Richmond Raceway Complex on September 23 and 24. The Guild anticipates having a very successful quilt show with lots of beautiful quilts on display!

For quilt entry forms and deadlines, go to the Guild's website.

In order to have sufficient time to quilt your quilt for the quilt show, The Longarm Network must have your quilt no later than September 1--but the sooner, the better! When you deliver your quilt to the Virginia Showroom, please mention that it is a Richmond Quilt Show entry so that we can note it on your paperwork.

Please contact your personal longarm quilter for the date by which you must deliver your quilt in order to have it ready in time for the quilt show.

"I knew immediately that I had made a good decision and that it’s not just about having a machine that “fits,” it’s also about having the BEST MACHINE....

It was a big day when I realized that my problems weren’t me after all. I am a good quilter. I just needed a better tool. With the right tool I can see that I am getting better with every quilt I quilt. Because now I’m working on building my skills and not working on compensating for the machine."
