Long-Arm Quilting Services
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
Thanks for your interest in having us quilt your quilt for you.
We have a couple of options available. Edge to edge quilting (the same design over the whole quilt done with a computer assisted machine) is .04 per square inch. (Width of quilt top x length of quilt top = square inches). There are many designs to choose from and thread is included in the price.
If your quilt needs more intensive specialty treatment our custom rates start at .06 per square inch. This includes thread colour changes, multiple different design treatments and freehand/ruler work.
To prepare your quilt for us there is no need to layer the quilt top/batting/ or backing. Make sure your quilt top is well pressed and then neatly folded. If you have batting you can bring it but if not we have two types of batting here that we can use (at regular cost); 100% cotton’ or an 80% cotton/20% polyester blend. We ask that your backing fabric be at least 6 inches larger than your quilt on each side to fit on the machine.
You do not need an appointment to drop off your quilt; just drop in anytime Tuesday through Saturday 10:00am to 6:00pm to discuss designs and check in your quilt.
Our turn around time varies but is usually about 3 weeks.
If you have further questions please feel free to call the Longarm Department at 403-252-3711.
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.
