Christine Atamanchuk – Quilting by Christine
Longarm Quilter and APQS Longarm Sales Representative
My name is Christine Atamanchuk and I live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. I am happily married to a wonderful man and we have two fur babies (both are cats as I am sort of a crazy cat lady). I have been sewing since I was 4 years old and started quilting in 2016.
From the moment I started quilting it just took over! What started as a hobby has become my passion and I love every part of it. I even applied for a job at my local quilt shop, Sparrow Quilt Co., and I have been working there ever since! From there my addiction... I mean hobby took over even more.
Sparrow Quilt Co. rents longarm machines and I VERY quickly fell head over heels in love with them. I knew one day I HAD to own one and pretty much immediately started initiating a plan to do so. THEN FINALLY the time had come. I purchased my very own APQS Millie longarm machine! A VERY exciting day for me!
It’s a joy to see all the different quilts my clients bring me. I love the dimension and texture quilting brings to a quilt and how excited a client is when they receive their quilt back. I am truly passionate about everything quilting. I feel honored every time someone chooses me to quilt their quilt (even if it’s a pantograph).
Other than running my longarm business I teach several quilt classes and Longarm Certification Classes at Sparrow Quilt Co. I am also a sales representative for APQS longarms. Selling a longarm to someone feels like getting my own longarm all over again! It brings me immense satisfaction knowing the excitement and joy the longarm will bring that individual.
