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. Please have a generalized idea of a pattern and color of thread you want to use. You will have a 15 minute consultation time window to decide with the assistance of Terri. Anything excess to 15 minutes, you will then be charged an additional forty dollars per each extra half hour increments.
Terri has been longarm quilting since 2004. The Laughing Ewe has 2 computerized longarm quilting machines. Quality longarm quilting service is performed on a Gammill, computerized Statler Stitcher and also on an Innova Auto pilot Mach 3. This quality service cost .02 cents per square inch for an "over-all" normal thread density design with any solid color thread choice. Variegated color thread color quilting charge is 02.5 cents per square inch for edge to edge design. A highly dense or "tight" quilting designs will be charged at a higher quilting cost due to more time and thread usage. Minimal charge is $25.00 for each project.
A custom quilting service is now being accepted at the Laughing Ewe at all times instead just at only peak times. Custom quilting is defined as different quilting designs or thread color changes in specific areas of the quilt. This service will only be quoted in person depending on the level and time required.
Any prior preparation to your quilt top or backing will have an additional charge added to your quilting fee depending on the time required. If the preparation is deemed too excessive by Terri , then the customer will be contacted to pick-up their unfinished quilt to be quilted at another time after the customer prepares the quilt.
Our quilting service offers you a choice from hundreds of quilting designs and a choice of solid or variegated colors of thread with personal guidance from Terri. We carry quilter's dream brand batting and many 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 accept Mountain Mist brand of batting.
We will not longarm any project that contains "minkee" brand fabric, blue jean denim fabric, 3-D objects, hanging or sewn in, or fleece whether it is in the quilt top or backing fabric. However, we will longarm quilt "T-Shirt Quilt" tops 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. We do not construct T shirt quilts or any other quilts that you request to be made. You must produce the constructed quilt top.
Our turn around time is generally between 2 to 3 weeks depending on the time of year. Each customer is individually instructed of an estimated quilting time when they drop off their quilt. The Laughing Ewe does not offer a "list" to place your name on for quilting. It is simply first come, first serve. You must physically bring in your quilt to placed in the que. Rush quilting jobs are not accepted under no circumstances due to the unfairness to the other customers who have the quilts physically in the que.
We do not offer a binding service of any kind. It is up to the quilter to finish the edges of the quilt once it has been longarmed.
