About Me

My Story 


At Which Old Stitch, there is no US.  There is just me - Diane Shepherd.

I decided to start Long Arm Quilting after several completed quilts using Free Motion Quilting on my home machine.  The last one was a king size!  I realized then that the part of the process I like most is the quilting. 

So, I started talking about Long Arm Quilting and, having a very supportive husband, I jumped in with both feet.  

I purchased a Nolting 24 Long Arm and computerized it. After spending several years learning the art of long arm quilting (there is always more to learn!), I upgraded to a new Innova 26" machine on a 12' frame, complete with Lightning Stitch stitch regulator and the powerful Mach 3 AutoPilot computer system.  There are literally thousands of designs available which allow me great flexibility while obtaining the best results. 

At Which Old Stitch, I will treat your ideas as if they were my own.  I look forward to helping you complete your quilting project.
