The Laughing Ewe Quilt Shop offers quality longarm quilting service for your unfinished quilt tops. Just bring in your pressed unfinished quilt top into
the shop during normal business hours and choose your quilting design and choice of color of thread with the shop's owner, Terri Brown. Scheduled appointments are not necessary.
Terri has been longarm quilting since 2004 on her Gammill, Statler Stitcher computerized longarm quilting machine. This machine rides on a 14 foot quilt frame which is long enough to quilt a "monster" size quilt. This quality service cost 1.5 cents per square inch for a "over-all" normal thread density design.
Custom quilting service will be quoted once the top is brought in and discussed. This custom pricing is based on the size of the quilt top and the length of time taken to complete the top. A custom quilting service will not be offered during high peak times unless you are patient and willing to wait the stated time period.
An over-all, or edge-to-edge quilting service offers you a choice from hundreds of quilting designs and solid or variegated colors of thread with personal guidance from Terri. We carry quilter's dream brand batting and over 50 bolts of wide width backing. If you choose to bring your own batting and backing it must be 4-6 inches larger on all sides than your quilt top and the backing and must be pressed. All three layers also must be separate and not attached to each other.
We will not longarm any project that contains "minkee" brand fabric or blue jean denim fabric whether it is in the quilt top or backing fabric. However, we will longarm quilt "T- Shirt Quilts" as long as the T-shirt blocks within the quilt have been stabilized with some form of stabilizer on the back to prevent over stretching of the T shirt fabric during the quilting process.
Our turn around time is generally is 3-4 weeks except during peak times of the year. If you have a "rush" quilting job, a minimal additional fee of $25.00 will be added to your invoice because other customers are patiently awaiting for their quilt. "Rush" quilting only applies to an all over, edge to edge design. There is never a rush exception to custom quilting.
