How Does My Pricing Work?
Price Per Inch
My price for quilting is 2 cents per square inch for most patterns.
For example: A quilt top is 60 inches x 80 inches. 60 x 80 = 4800 x .02 = $96
If you would like a complete estimate of the cost of longarming your project, simply contact me with the measurements of your quilt, and whether you require batting, and I'd be happy to accommodate your request.
There is a minimum charge of $40 for smaller items. This takes into consideration the time it takes me to load items onto the machine, arrange patterns and stitch them out.
All prices are in Canadian dollars and subject to provincial tax. Please subscribe to my email list so I can keep you up to date on upcoming promotions. I offer a 15% discount with my "Refer A Friend" program - if a new customer identifies that they were referred by you, you automatically get 15% off your next quilting service.
I use Glide thread exclusively. There is no additional charge for thread. If there is a particular colour of thread that you have your heart set on, and I don’t currently carry it, I would consider cost sharing with you. I have a good selection of neutral threads, which I prefer. I also have a small variety of coloured thread.
We will work together to choose a thread that will best compliment your quilt top.
I use Hobb’s, as well as Quilter's Dream batting, and both are 80% cotton and 20% polyester. They are good quality battings that provides great results. I have batting available for my customers to purchase. I do have access to other battings, so if there is something that you are looking for just let me know. There are many materials and weights to choose from and pricing varies for each.
To ensure that I can get your quilts back to you as quickly as possible, please take care to press and prepare your backing fabric, as this can be a time consuming step in the process. I do require your backing fabric to be 8 inches longer and wider than your quilt top. If you are mailing your quilt top and backing to me for service, shipping is an additional fee, and I can provide estimates upon request.
I will send you an invoice and photographs when I have completed your quilt. As soon as I receive your prompt payment, we can arrange a time for you to pick up your completed quilt. If you are a "mail in" client, your completed quilt will be mailed back to you promptly, once payment has been received.
