The Irishman's Shanty - Long Arm Quilting Services
We began our long arm business as Michigan Warm Hugs Quilts. Since closing the retail store Dan and Robin have continued long arm quilting under a different name.
Our new name, The Irishman's Shanty Long Arm Quilting comes with a story of local interest. Early on our friend, Rosie Gallagher came into the store and told us about a yarn and knitting shop she and husband, Terry ran many years ago. It was located in the building right behind Matt's Grill in what are now apartments - "The Irishman's Shanty." We fell for the name and the brand and have wanted to revive it for many years. We have their permission to adopt it.
Even though Dan's adopted name, "Scow" is not an Irish name, his heritage is nearly 100% Irish with some Scottish and English. Irish names like Kelly (birth name), Woody, White, Casey, McEwan and Kane dot his family tree.
The new name makes Dan's grandmother's and mother's Irish Eyes smile.
Our shop hours vary - one of the benefits of being semi-retired. While you can "pop in" while we are in the shop, it's best to make an appointment.
Appointments can be made online or by phone. Click the button below or call Dan at (989) 915-867 to make an appointment by phone.
Irishman’s Shanty Long Arm Quilting provides professional long arm edge to edge quilting. Owners and operators have nearly 10 years of experience long arm quilting on two quilting machines, a HandiQuilter Fusion and Avante. The shop runs two quilting machines, so turnaround time is relatively short. Prices for quilting is competitive ($0.02 per square inch. A wide variety of digital quilt patterns are available.
