A schedule begins

In brief, Ron’s service calendar looks like this:

January – Southern California, foothills

February – Northen California

March, April – Arizona

May? Back in California while Laura is in Alaska

June, July August – a route through Idaho, Montana, Washington


While in the southland

Your machine may need a service call from Ron, he has the time to wander his way back home from one studio to the next.

Ron can help your machine freshen up for the new spring season, contact him via his email address:


or with a phone call or text to 406-550-9026.

Are you coming?

Road to California, in Ontario CA is Southern California’s giant quilt show. Ontario has its own airport, so fly in there, the convention center is right next door.

Hordes of vendors, all the “big guys”, will be there, with great quilting products, including IntelliQuilter. That’s the booth where you will find us for the entire show.

Show begins January 21. 2016.

We will host an IQ users meeting at our booth, what day works best for you to come?  Stay tuned, we’ll announce the day and time here next week.  What time works for you? I’m thinking Friday about 4 but am open to suggestions.

Happy New Year! Enjoy the lengthening daylight.



Happy Holidays Everyone!

May you be nimble as a goat, steady as a ewe, and have plenty of shoulder to stand on! Happy New Year, Ron and Laura

Here he comes

That was a whirlwind, instant turnaround from Reno to San Diego and other points southward.

Whats next? A bit of catchup with local quilting machines, from the Bay Area to the Foothills.

After Thanksgiving looks like East Bay, probably back to Gilroy.

First week of December puts Ron in the foothills, after that- it’s up to you.

Contact Ron now at 406-550-9026 houndhollr@aol.com to be included in his plans.

Next quilt show for us is Road to California, toward the end of January, and that is the perfect time for you in Southern California to get your machines serviced, and get your IntelliQuilter installed,   If you already have an IQ be sure to plan to come to the show for some free update training.

Thinking of ordering an IntelliQuilter for your longarm?  Totally great idea, call Laura at 415-320-4369 to explore that possibility.  We use two, one on each machine. Compact, powerful system,. in-studio installation, two days of training while the machine is being serviced and the IQ installed…what could be a better tool to add to your longarm?




Show time

Will we see you at either of these quilt shows in October?

Quiltfest Oasis, a Mancuso show in Palm Springs, October 8-10

Pacific International Quilt Festival in Santa Clara the following week, October 15-18.

Look for our booth as the IntelliQuilter booth.

Montana Anyone?

As Ron flies off to Alaska today, I’m looking ahead to his September trek to Montana, by way of Idaho.

In addition to his “regulars”, he could have time for some more machines to service.

Here is YOUR opportunity to finally get his talent and experience to give your Longarm a “spa day” just in time for the load of quilting you will be doing for the holidays.

Ron has all of September to fit you in, but has to plan a route, so get on his radar early.

He will be heading up through Grants Pass, in case you missed us when we were there this spring………….

As always, the best method to contact Ron is by email or text,



Alaska, get ready

Arriving in Anchorage August 13, for a nine day service tour through Southcentral Alaska (including Kenai Peninsula and Valdez).

Did YOU get on Ron’s list for service?

its not too late, call him at 406-550-9026

or email Ron at Houndhollr@aol.com


Northwest for NEXT month’s rounds

Ron is on his way off to Hawaii,  which means it is time for me to think ahead to his August trip.

That service tour will be North to Alaska.

As usual, the best way to get onto his itinerary, is to email him directly, or text him at 406-550-9026.  Houndhollr@aol.com

Information he likes to have ahead of time, is what sort of “issues” you may be experiencing with your machine, if any.  “Well checks” are the best ones, right? But if there are special parts he needs you to have, that is best planned ahead.

Washington, Montana, fear not, you are “up” right after Alaska.
