Do you have a stack of ‘summer quilts’ – as in unquilted tops – just waiting for you to get to them? Did Grandma leave you that yarn tied ‘quilt’ with all those funky 70’s fabrics that you would like secured with additional stitching? Or maybe you just can’t manage quilting that queen or king sized quilt on your home machine.
My Sewing Room Longarm Department offers a variety of services to help turn those UFO’s into family treasures.
This is what we can do for you:
- We quilt it for you
Bring us your quilt top – well pressed and checked for missed stitches. (3D elements such as buttons, beads or patches may need special treatment so if possible leave these off until after quilting.)
Bring your batting – at least 3” larger than top on all four sides. Or if you like we can supply your choice of batting off the roll.
Bring your backing. We need an extra 6 inches on all sides to load it onto our machine. If you would rather, we can help you choose backing fabric from our thousands of bolts of quality cotton. We can even prepare your backing for you for a small extra charge.
Then Choose Your:
-Quilting design – Allover (E2E) designs are 4 cents per square inch
Custom designs or block by block are 6-10 cents per square inch (Arranged by consultation) depending on complexity.
-Thread – Isacord 40wt Polyester for top thread and Decobob 80 wt pre-wound bobbin thread is included in the quilting costs. Other thread choices may be an additional fee.
- Binding service
We can bind your quilt for you whether we quilted it or you did. For 30 cents a linear inch you get a full standard binding, machine stitched to the front of the quilt and hand stitched on the back. This includes binding preparation from your choice of fabric.
- Longarm Rental Service
