Creative Longarm Quilting is a home-based machine quilting service.  Karen's award-winning quilting can turn your unfinished top into the beautiful quilt it was meant to be!  Karen offers many levels of quilting services, but specializes in custom and heirloom quilting.

All quilt tops are special and unique -- they are to be cherished for years to come.  Each quilt is given the special attention and individual quilting design that it deserves.  Karen designs a plan to truly enhance the quilt.  All quilting is performed on a Gammill quilting machine and is done freehand -- not computer-aided.  She understands the time, energy, and love that went into making your quilt top -- whether an everyday throw or a treasured heirloom.  It is Karen's goal to enhance your piecing and see the vision of your finished quilt.  Check the Client Quilts page for photos.

Local clients are seen by appointment.  If you are not local, you may ship your quilt, please email for additional information on shipping procedures.


Karen Marchetti lives in beautiful sunny Southeast Florida with her wonderful husband and their fantastic son.  She started quilting in 2003, fell in love with longarming, and opened her business in 2005.  It has been an amazing journey - she has met many special people and has been honored to quilt for them.

When Karen isn't quilting for clients, or creating her own competition pieces, she travels to various shows teaching longarm quilting.  Karen is proud to represent Gammill Quilting Systems as one of their Quilting Artists -- demonstrating the amazingness of machine quilting - it is so much more than just stitches, it is truly an art form.

Karen has always loved drawing and painting, and quilting on the Gammill is very similar to both - she draws with thread.  Karen loves creating and designing her own quilts, and competes as much as possible.  She loves anything and everything creative!
