it’s nice to meet you!
We are the wife/husband team of myself, Joanne Davenport and my husband, Peter Veillette. I am an experienced quilter and creative artisan and Peter, a former accountant, (don’t hold that against him 😁) is a detail-oriented problem-solver and outside-the-box thinker. Together we form Remarkable Impressions Ltd. Longarm Quilting
We have worked together since 2001 and created a successful home-based wholesale business (SunsetStudios.ca) that makes hand crafted clay jewelry for distribution to retail gift shops across Canada. We have scaled back that business from full to part time, and now focus our efforts on longarm quilting.
I have wanted a longarm quilting machine for many years, however I was too busy with Sunset Studios to seriously consider getting one. In August 2018, a total stranger (thank you, Donna!) allowed me to use her longarm machine to complete a 52” square baby quilt for my 3rd grandchild. This was a game changer. I had been wrestling bundles of fabric through my domestic machine for 15 years, not to mention the difficulty of crawling around on the floor to pin baste the quilt sandwiches together. My next project was an oversized king “Gravity” quilt (see photo) for my brother and his bride. This is going to take days to quilt… who is going to let me use their machine for that long? Who has a frame big enough to accommodate it?
