Machine Quilting

Let us do the hard part

Do you love to create quilt tops but find quilting on your home machine too difficult? Consider having us do your quilting on our state of the art long arm quilter - a computerized Statler Stitcher built on a Gammill Optimum body. This system enables us to offer you hundreds of quilting designs, including stippling at no extra cost.

Also available, for hand quilters or those of you who choose to do your own quilting at home, is a machine basting service, priced at $20 per hour,

Prices

We carry the following battings:

Our quilting prices are calculated by the square foot. To determine how many square feet are in your quilt top, measure the length and the width (in inches) - multiply these two numbers and divide the answer by 144.

You may bring your quilt top into our shop at 139 Pancake Road, Andover, New Hampshire 03216 or send it to us.  Please fill out the pdf order form above and send it with your quilt top.

A binding service is available which includes cutting the binding strips and sewing them by machine to the front of your quilt. The cost for this service is $20 per hour.
