Quilting Services

Bring in your finished quilt projects and we can quilt them on our long arm. We have a variety of computerized Edge to Edge designs and thread colors to choose from. Edge to edge quilting is the simplest and most cost-effective service we offer. Most patterns cost 2 cents per square inch and, as the name implies, the same pattern repeats from one edge to the other. Simply do the math. Length x width x 2 cents = the price of stitching. ($40 minimum, no extra thread charge).

We also offer custom quilting service on our Bernina Q16. Becki does a fabulous job, stop in and talk to her about what custom designs she can do for you! Becki is available most Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.

Please note that there will be a $10.00 charge to piece the backing of your quilt. And a $15.00 charge to press your quilt top or backing. Additional sewing or repair is $20.00.

Quilts will be quilted in the order they are received. We strive to return your quilt in a timely manner. Rush orders will be charged extra.
