The quilt must lay flat if it does not there nay be some puckering in the final product.
The quilt must be clean and free of odor. The top and backing should be pressed and please do indicate with a safety pin which side is the top of your quilt. The batting may be purchased from More Sew For You, or you can bring in a batting for us to use.

To schedule your quilt top
Please call us or stop in the store to schedule a time on the calendar for your quilt. Please bring in your top and backing about 3 days before your calendar date so that we can make every effort to get the quilt on the machine on the date you have reserved. When you bring the quilt top in, we will measure it and then with your help select the thread and pattern that you would like us to use.

The long arm machine is moving piece of equipment. The fabric stays in one place and the machine moves across it. On some occasions we may experience a malfunction which can result in damage to your quilt top. We take every precaution with your quilts and will look closely for anything that might cause either a mechanical issue or any other issue.
If your quilt is full and does not lay flat, puckering does occur. We will alert you if we think this will be an issue to determine if you want us to proceed. Sometimes, however it will occur when the quilt is on the machine and we will be committed at that point to quilt it as it is.
