Long Arm Quilting Service

Did u know we have a long arm quilting service? This service is perfect if you haven't got time to do the quilting yourself or would like it doing professionally for a gift. When you have finished your quilt top it's now ready to bring in to us. The quilt can't be any bigger than 100" x 100". If you have your own backing and wadding that's great you can bring it in but please make sure it is at least 6" bigger width and length ways than your quilt top. This is to allowing for any movement when quilting. If you don't have backing or wadding don't worry we have some here. The waddings we have are polyester, cotton and cotton/bamboo blend. We have a selection of extra wide backings available in a range of different colours. If you fancy a plain background we also have 120" wide moda calico in cream and white. When your quilt is with us Alison will quilt it and cut off any excess wadding and backing. We will let you know as soon as your quilt is ready to collect. The quilting price is dependant on the size of the quilt. If you would like a quote please call us on 01207 565728 with your finished quilt size and we will give you a quote over the phone straight away.

We hope you all have a lovely week and we hope to see you soon!
