We are a Longarm Quilting Business.
Riverview Quilting is a longarm quilting business, founded in 2014 by Gail Pravatiner after machine quilting for almost 25 years. Gail is dedicated to making your quilt top into a quality heirloom.
When my daughters were old enough that wearing the clothes that Mom made was no longer an option I asked my husband for a quilting class for our anniversary. I really didn’t know much about quilting and somehow ended up in a hand piecing class. I was so excited the quilt store was less than a mile from home. It took very little time to discover that having a store so close may not be a good thing.
Hand piecing and hand quilting did not end up being something I enjoyed so I went looking for more options and have been machine piecing tops since 1995. About 10 years ago a new quilt store opened and you could rent their longarm. This was the best thing ever! I was able to get the stack of quilt tops quilted and make more. I also started to quilt for a few neighbors and friends and both daughters who quilt as well.
The time came that I had quilted more than a hundred quilts and we decided that it was time for me to start quilting on a machine of my own. While I was learning I pieced many tops and practiced quilting them, the charities that I support have received at least 20 quilts while I was gaining more experience. My goal is to make your quilt top into something you or the person you give the quilt to will treasure for years to come.
