Most have free patterns, tips & techniques to help you in your quilt making.  In addition anyone may now sign up on the newsletter page to be added to the direct emailing of the newsletter.  Be assured, I never share your info with anyone.

Edge to Edge Quilting

The pandemic has given quilters the opportunity to finish UFO's, make new quilts, use up stash & kits....  The number of quilts that I have been receiving in the past year for longarm quilting is amazing!!  So in order to accommodate the increase, I am changing the longarm services that I offer.  At this time I will ONLY be providing Edge To Edge Quilting. I will no longer be providing any custom quilting (that is where the blocks, sashing, &  borders are quilted separate in coordinating designs).  I do not do any freehand quilting, only digitized computer quilting with my two Handi Quilter Machines. If you need a referral for custom quilting, feel free to contact me.  Here is the new revised order form.

Binding services are still available for both hand and machine finishing. I have a second person that works with me now who does all the bindings.


Batting

Quilters Dream Batting Company has issued a price increase starting May 1st.  The cost of obtaining the raw materials to produce the batting has increased.  So you will see a price increase starting May 1st with me as well.  The pandemic has affected the batting production. For quite some time now, it takes 3 weeks from the time an order is placed, for it to be produced and shipped.  Quilters Dream Batting is still 100% made in the USA!


Wide Backing Fabric

Moda and all fabric manufacturers have also issued a upcoming price increase that we will start seeing anytime. Again, the price increase is a direct result of the pandemic. All of my in stock wide backing fabric will remain at the current prices. Future purchases I make to add to the inventory will reflect the increase I incur from the company.
