Joey St. Amant of Old Guy Longarm

    Have you heard of Old Guy Longarm? He lives in Brea. His name is Joey, hence, Old Guy and he uses a Longarm to stitch together three pieces to make a quilt.

      Joey and Bonnie St. Amant moved to Brea in 1997. They were attracted to Brea’s quiet small-town feel, and the accessibility to shopping and restaurants, Joey says.

        Bonnie retired a few years ago from working at Xerox and Joey, who was in the material handling business since 1973, recently retired. Both at home and looking for a change decided to use Bonnie’s hobby of quilting the past 10 years to start a business. Actually, the thought of implementing a quilting business was on the backburner for some time as Joey became interested in 2006, when his wife took her pieced tops to a gentleman to have him put them together on his Longarm. “I thought I could do that and it would be fun," said Joey.

          Since Joey had been accustomed to being called “Old Guy,” now and then, Bonnie put the pieces together to form the business name: Old Guy Longarm.

            So if you’re a quilter looking for a Longarm operation, you’re in luck as Bonnie and the Old Guy, I mean Joey, will gladly take your pieces of history and apply decorative stitching to form a beautiful quilt, old & new.
