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. Minimal charge is $25.00 for each project.
Custom quilting is defined as different quilting designs or thread color changes in specific areas of the quilt. Custom quilting service is not offered here. Only "edge to edge" or "all over" quilting service @ 1.5 cents per square inch is being offered. Tight or high density quilting designs will be charged a higher service charge due to the excess thread and time that service requires if owner deems acceptance of your project.
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.
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 well 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 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. However, 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 5 to 7 weeks depending on the time of year. Each customer is verbally individually instructed how 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.
Thank-you for your understanding of these guidelines. These guidelines have been placed so The Laughing Ewe Quilt Shop continues to provide the best quality Long Arm quilting service at an reasonable cost .
