About Moonbear Designs

 This page updated ~ Summer 2015

Moonbear Designs began as a workroom in South Lake Tahoe, CA fabricating window treatments and home decorating products, sub-contracting for Interior Designers. Following 30 years in the home decorating business and a move to Chico I opened a longarm quilting studio. Occasionally, I collaborate with my favorite client, Interior Motives in South Lake Tahoe, CA.

My first longarm was a pre-owned Gammill with a Statler Stitcher. This machine was difficult to hand guide and I soon turned to computerized quilting on the Statler. Researched other longarm options and in 2014 made a change to Innova.  Excited to be a member of the Innova family!

My studio is located in Chico, California, USA. A home based business by appointment only

Recently I added a Cross Hatch Bar designed by Innova that is built into the frame
and the newer handle bar extensions with control buttons

 and HAL, my Auto Pilot computerized system with touch screen
Custom mouse and side tables made by Michael :0)
Coming soon is Mach 3! 

A pocket I made for my frame to keep customer quilts and batting off of the floor.
99% of the time I do a full float and use fabric covered magnets to hold tops in place.
Knobs were added to make them easier to handle.

The tools I use are red snappers and rulers from Quilts on the Corner

This great little hand held, wireless mouse/keyboard combo.
It's the size of a TV remote and it glows with the black light option in my LED light!!!

Sadly my sweet girl left us suddenly in December 2014
due to a cancer. I miss her so very much.
