Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost?

It costs $20 per hour to rent our long-arm quilting machine. There is a 2 hour minimum.

There is a $40 non-refundable deposit required to reserve your time. The deposit is then applied to your final charge.



How long will it take?

To determine how many hours you should reserve for your project we take a few factors into consideration; such as, the size of your quilt, the density of your intended quilting pattern, and whether you stitch by hand or utilize the Quilt Artist II automated quilting program. We will help you decide how many hours to allow when you call or stop by to make your reservation.



Do I need to take a class before I can rent your long-arm machine?

No class is necessary prior to reserving your time. Our expert staff will walk you through the process as you go!



Should I baste my quilt before I bring it in?

Nope! Please don't  baste your quilt. The three layers of your quilt will be placed on separate rails on the quilting frame.


What do I have to bring?

Just bring your finished, pressed quilt top, batting and backer. The backer and batting will need to be at least 4 inches larger than your quilt top on all sides. You will also want to bring long-arm machine quilting thread or purchase some when you come in to quilt.



What thread should I use?

You will need to use long-arm machine quilting thread. We carry a wide variety of Signature long-arm machine quilting thread that is available for you to purchase.  You are also welcome to supply your own long-arm machine quilting thread. We just ask you to remember that quality thread leads to quality results while cheap or old threads will make you pull your hair out! ;)



Do I have to use the quilting designs on your machine?

Not at all! You have the option of quilting by hand, using the quilting designs programmed on the machine or you can download designs onto a USB drive and bring your design with you to the store on the day you come to quilt! We recommend
www.digitechpatterns.com or www.intelligentquilting.com as  great resources for thousands of possible quilting designs to purchase.


What if I have a question while I’m quilting?

Come and ask us! We are always available to help you while you are working on the long-arm. We anticipate and welcome your questions.


How can I reserve your long-arm quilter?


Just give us a call at 608-422-5449 or stop by the store! We’ll be happy to help you reserve your time.
