Pre-owned Gammill quilting machines are available through longarm quilting machine dealers such as AccomplishQuilting.com and AndrewsGammillNorthwest.com. Some online quilting forums feature used machines classified ads.
Longarm machines have a wide sewing surface and a needle that rapidly goes back and forth to sew through several layers of cloth and quilting batting at once. As of 2015, the Statler by Gammill line features three different types of longarm quilting machines: computer-guided, hand-guided and free-motion. Many professional quilters prefer computer-guided machines, while custom quilters opt for hand-guided machines. A free-motion machine can be moved in any direction to draw a pattern with threads.
