Professional Longarm Quilting 

A Busy Bobbin


I know you're busy.  Who isn't these days?  With all of us running around chasing kids, grand kids, homes, church, jobs AND that oh so important hobby, QUILTING, it's important to stop and smell the roses.  Because of all that hard work you've put into piecing a quilt, it's important to see that project finished and ready to show off.

I'm here to help you finish those projects.  Do you love to piece together quilt tops, but hate the time and energy it takes to quilt them on your home sewing machine?  Send them my way.  A Busy Bobbin will get busy quilting your pieced tops so that you can continue staying busy piecing them.

I've been sewing since I was nine years old.  My mother sat me down in front of the sewing machine and over the years, she has taught me all I know.  We started with crafts and clothing in the 4-H home economics program and eventually moved onto quilting.  I still learn from her today and believe she is the best quilter out there.  I am biased since she is my Momma, but her passion for quilting is contagious and I strive to be like her.

My husband retired from 23 years in the Navy.  He and I and our two sons have lived in many places throughout his Naval career but his last tour was three and a half years in Naples, Italy.  What an experience! So, It's back home to Texas and we are now settled in the Humble, Texas area (a northern suburb of Houston).  We are living a civilian life and striving for the American dream.  Our oldest son is following in Daddy's footsteps and is now a United States navy sailor as a Surgery Technician, our youngest son attends Stephen F. Austin State University as  a Music Major.  

Hi, I'm Kim Norton and I own two ABM Innova long arm quilting machines.  It's a dream to finish off a quilt on these fabulous machines.  One Innova is a 26" big-boned beauty sitting on a 12' frame while, the other Innova is a 22" which sits beautifully on a 10' frame. My 26" machine has Innova's Navigator attached to do computerized edge-to-edge patterns while I do only hand driven custom work on my 22" machine.
