Let‘s turn your quilt top into a real quilt.

♥ You’re gonna love how it looks ♥

Hi, I’m Anna

This picture was from an article in the local newspaper, The Independent.

Located in


I’m Anna Bachtel and It’s by Anna has been in my home studio since 1999.

I quilt on the best longarm machine available … a Gammill with the Statler Stitcher attached,

which allows me to select from thousands of digitized designs to use on your quilts.

Check out these web pages to see samples of the designs I have available.

Wholecloth, blocks of patchwork, hand-stitched applique or machine applique and embroidered blocks,

these can all be done nicely on a Gammill.

I am normally finished with your quilt within a month.

And this is Olivia

the name I gave my machine.


I know the video makes this look really easy.

However, Olivia would be lost without me telling the Statler computer what to do. Thinking you can just press a button and turn out a great quilt would be like someone with no cooking experience, buying the top-of-the-line stove and expecting it to produce a gourmet meal after just pushing the button to turn the burner on.

This video is showing Olivia quilting the pattern named Circle Meander on customer Sharon P’s quilt.

My Groups

QUILTING STARS OF OHIO – quilting group.  Sometimes there are openings for QSO membership. If you are interested, go to the Contact Form below and let me know. I’ll head you in the right direction. We meet monthly on the second Friday morning in Canton.

OHIO STATLER – for Statler users in and around Ohio.  We always have room for new members at OH Statler. We meet to share information four times a year in Zanesville, at A Touch of Thread, the Ohio Gammill dealer. The purpose is to learn, learn, learn.

STATLER CLASSES – I attend a retreat with three stuffed-full days of Statler classes every year, plus the OH Statler group is for sharing and learning – and we learn a lot. Other classes are available all the time and when I can take the time off, I attend those also.

My studio rule is …. NO PETS …. NO SMOKING
