Before you send me you quilt, please do the following:


· Press top and back.
· Trim loose threads.
· Trim loose threads.
· Quilt should be square. If it's not square, I'll have to contact you about any trimming.
· Press and fold neatly.
· DO NOT pin or baste your quilt. If you did, I'll will only have to remove them. If I hit a needle that you placed in your quilt, it will damage my machine and destroy the timing and maybe a needle shaft.

· Additional charge if I have to prep the quilt. $15.00 per every 1/2 hr of time needed.


· Backing must be 4-6 wider and 4-6 longer than quilt top
· Please, no sheets for backing.
· The backing should be neatly sewn together, with the excess selvage removed.
· Cut parallel top to bottom leaving no jagged edges.


· Please try to measure your borders and square it up when piecing your quilt. Excess fabric in the borders will make your quilt misshapen, and makes it more difficult to quilt without pleating.

Hand Pick-Up and Drop-Off

We can make arrangements to meet at the local quilt shop, or arrangements at my home to drop-off and pick-up your quilt. A one-on-one consultation on your quilt is important, especially if it includes custom work. This can be done over the phone if necessary.
Provide me your batting to go with your quilt as well. If not, I do have prices for cotton/poly blend and a poly batting as shown under the "fees" section.

Include 50% deposit when dropping off the quilt. The remainder of the payment will be required when you pick up the quilt.


Shipping and insurance: You pay to ship it, and include $12 for the first quilt in the box and $7 for each additional quilt in the same box to mail it back. The quilt(s) will be shipped via UPS with delivery confirmation, so make sure there is someone who can sign for the quilt when you take receipt of it.

Please request and refer to our brochure for additional guidelines. Most questions will be answered in our brochure. If you have any further concerns after receiving our brochure, please call for assistance.

Please remember, you must have time reserved BEFORE you ship your quilt.
