Granny Sassy Designs - specializing in Longarm Quilting Services

The Start of Granny Sassy Designs, circa 1960's

Granny Sassy Designs is lovingly owned and operated by Lucy Linn McKie. After a successful career in banking, commercial real estate and the mortgage industry, Lucy decided to pursue her passion of sewing and especially quilting.
Lucy was taught to sew by her mother when she was in 5th grade after complaining that when she got new clothes other girls at school had the same outfits. Living in Great Falls, Montana, shopping was limited so she solved this problem by making her own clothes. Sewing has been a passion for Lucy since that time. While her oldest was very young, Lucy sewed the detail work on tailored western suits for a local tailor, made curtains and took in alterations. The big thing at that time was straightening the legs of bell bottom pants!
About 25 years ago Lucy discovered quilting, which is not her passion…it’s an obsession!
Lucy McKie, Owner of Granny Sassy Designs
After many years of machine quilting on a narrow throat Pfaff, Lucy ungraded her sewing machine to a Brother 6750D and also got a Gammill Statler Computerized Longarm machine. The Pfaff was a great machine…sewed like butter…but it struggled to handle larger quilts. Lucy also wanted to be able to create the beautiful quilts that can be completed on a Gammill Statler. Now she is sharing her skill with you.
Granny Sassy Designs offer several services:
  • Longarm quilting where we take your completed quilt top and backing, place batting between and then sew it together with computer guided precise patterns.
  • Complete quilt services where we also make the quilt top completing the quilt from start to finish.
  • Embroidery services – we will digitize your logo and/or embroider onto your item of choice.
  • Specialty services – we love to make matching girl and doll dresses – and even will make a quilt for the doll out of any scraps!

If you have something you want created, just let us know, we love custom orders.

Lucy is known as Granny Sassy by her family, named this by her first grandchild who struggled to say "Granny Lucy”, making it sound like Granny Sassy. Lucy is not sure why everyone thinks this is so fitting, but loves the name Madison gave her and decided to carry it over to the quilting, sewing and embroidery business. After all, Madison loves to spend time in the quilt room with Granny Sassy.

Lucy also spends time doing longarm quilting for Quilts of Valor, www.govf.org.
