Professional long-arm quilting service based in Reading, Berkshire, UK. Establish 2006.

Welcome to my website

The Running Chicken offers a professional longarm quilting service. I am based in Reading, Berkshire, UK. Please browse my site and enjoy your visit.

You have spent many hours piecing your patchwork top... now let me turn it into a finished quilt using my Gammill hand guided and computer assisted longarm quilting machine.

FOR HAND QUILTERS - Even if you are a hand quilter I can help you too. Many of my customers use my basting service and save the effort of getting on their knees. My basting service another advantages over hand basting because I can tension the layers to give you a great finish.


Recently I have started selling fabrics, rulers, patterns and notions on-line or you can ring to make an appointment to visit my studio to see my fabrics....
