Remember, the price for batting still have to be added.

 

Which size is the largest that your machine can handle?

A quilt with the longest border not longer than 2.6m.

 

Which size is the smallest that your machine can handle?

A4 size or miniature quilt.

 

How long does it take to quilt a quilt?

It depends on how the quilt wants to be quilted.  A single bed edge-to-edge takes 3 hours and a double bed takes 4 hours. To free-hand a single bed takes a whole day and bigger than that, takes 2 days.

 

Who decides on the quilting pattern?

Usually I do, but if a client has certain ideas, I try to incorporate them.

 

Do I have to provide batting?

If you have, you may bring it, the cost will obviously be cheaper. I do have batting though.

 

Do you work with a very thick batting?

My machine don’t like working with thick batting.

 

Do I have to provide thread?

No, I provide a variation of good quality thread like Superior Thread’s Bottom Line, Signature or Rainbow thread.

 

Do I have to provide the lining/backing?

Yes, please.  I prefer a busy backing as it is more forgiving to handle the top-thread showing on the back.

 

Must I tack the three layers together before I send it to you?

Please, NO!  The Gammill machine is designed to do that job.

 

Can your machine handle fleeze or winter-sheeting.

Easily, yes.

 

What do you need when I want to send my quilt to you?

Patchwork-top or whole cloth, lining and your name on the bag.

 

Do I have to stitch the backing/lining to the correct size?

Absolutely, yes, otherwise I'll have to do it and have to charge you for the extra time doing that.

 

What size must the batting and lining be?

3 Inches all around bigger than the top.

 

How long will it take before I shall have the completed quilt back at home?

It depends on how busy I am.  Normally it takes up to 2-3 weeks, but it might be earlier. If possible, it will never be more than six weeks.

 

Do you give specials?

No.

 

When is your holiday?

1 December – 2 January.
