Service Information and FAQs
What type of longarm services do you provide?
I provide digital edge to edge designes. That means that the quilting will be uniform across the quilt.
How much does quilting cost?
I have a flat rate of $.02 per square inch. Example: 50 X 60 = 3000 inches 3000 x .02 = $60.00
Is there a minimum charge for quilting?
My minimum charge for quilting is $50. If your quilt measures smaller than the minimum charge, consider combining projects by using the same backing.
How should my quilt be prepared?
All seams should be pressed flat. The flatter the seams the less likely bunching or folds will occur during quilting. Backing and batting should be 4 inches larger than the quilt top on all sides, this allows proper loading onto the quilt frame as well as accounts for any shifting that may occur during quilting (price per square inch is based on quilt top size, not backing size).
What is the largest size quilt you can take
I can take a quilt top up to 120 inches wide.
Will you piece my backing?
I am willing to piece your backing for $8 per seam.
Will you press my quilt?
I am willing to press your quilt top and backing for $10.
Do you provide batting?
You have the option of sending your own batting or purchasing from me. I carry Hobbs 80/20 batting at 96” for $7.99/yard.
Will you bind my quilt?
I will prepare and attach binding to the front for $.15 per linear inch. Example: 50 + 50 + 60 + 60 = 220 220 x .15 = $33 I will prepare and attach binding to the back and machine stitch to the front for $.20 per linear inch. Example: 50 + 50 + 60 + 60 = 220 220 x .2 = $44 I will prepare and attach binding to the front and hand stitch to the back for $.30 per linear inch. Example: 50 + 50 + 60 + 60 = 220 220 x .3 = $66
Can I mail my quilt to you?
Of course! I live in Holland, Michigan and love serving local quilters but I would love to quilt your creations whether you live near or far. I recommend sending your materials in a plastic bag within a cardboard box. This will protect against any moisture damage while shipping. When I finish your quilt I will send your quilt back to you in the same way via USPS Priority mail, using the most economical way. Priority mail comes with $50 insurance and a tracking number. Let me know if you are interested in increasing the amount of insurance and we can make that happen. If you decide to ship your quilt, you are responsible for shipping to and from the destination.
How long will it take to finish my quilt?
I pride myself on quick turn around times, however if you need your quilt completed and returned by a certain date we can make appropriate arrangements.
How/When do I pay for your quilting services?
Through the quilt intake process you will receive an estimated cost for the project. Upon completion of your quilt I will send you an invoice via email. I accept cash or check (local only), all major credit cards and ACH Bank Transfers (through Quickbooks Payments). If for any reason the final cost is different than the estimated cost (plus shipping if applicable) I will contact you before moving forward.
