I have both sit down and full frame long arm machines and I do machine quilting for others in my home studio (no smoking, no pets). If you’re interested in having me quilt for you, here’s what you need to know 🙂
Turn around time is currently approx. two weeks to one month.
**COMING SOON: I will be adding computerized edge to edge quilting services in early 2019, please watch for details to be updated as they are available!
With my hand guided custom work you’ll get artistic variations and a custom personal touch that will be different from the repetition or consistency of a computerized machine stitching pattern.
**Please note: the quilting will show on your backing. I use thread that blends with the quilt top – just as a hand quilter would – and I use the same color for top and bobbin threads.
Edge to edge quilting: starts at 2 cents per square inch (L x W x .02)
Custom quilting: prices are dependent on the complexity of the quilting desired and special requests such as thread color changes, adapting to appliqued designs etc. Please contact me for a consultation and estimate based on your particular quilt and design choices.
Pricing includes thread and my work to sandwich/load the quilt. Minimum charge of $35 regardless of quilt size.
For quilts being shipped back and forth, I ask for a deposit of 25% of the estimated cost of quilting prior to starting your project, and the remainder payment in full before I ship your finished quilt. All shipping charges will be your responsibility and return shipping must include tracking.
SIZE: I can accept quilt tops up to a max. of 95″ wide (length can vary). **NOTE: size options will be updated in January 2019 to include larger quilts.
PREPARING YOUR QUILT:
- Please have your seams completely sewn and secure, threads trimmed, and top squared and pressed so all seams are flat. These things will help your quilt top remain smooth and stable when pulled taut for quilting. As well, excessively wavy borders/edges can interfere with a satisfactory end result. If you are unsure of any of the above, please feel free to contact me with questions!
- Backing and batting: please cut each of these 8″ wider and 8″ longer than the quilt top itself, and ensure backing is squared and cut straight on all edges. I prefer that pieced backings have horizontal rather than vertical seams to ensure smooth loading on the long arm frame.
- I usually have batting available for purchase if you don’t have your own: Hobbs 80/20, Tuscany wool, and Quilter’s Dream poly select when available.
Please be sure your expectations fit within the scope of the service I offer before surrendering your handiwork to my studio 🙂
