Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT TYPE OF LONGARM SERVICES DO YOU PROVIDE?

  • At Looped Quilting, we do all-over computerized edge-to-edge quilting.  This is when you select a design, and I load that design into the computer that controls my longarm machine.  The machine then stitches the design at the scale we select.   

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO HAVE MY QUILT TOP LONGARM QUILTED?

  • Edge-to-edge computerized is $0.02 per square inch

  • Our minimum charge for quilting is $50.
     

HOW DO I NEED TO PREPARE MY QUILT?

Tidy it up by pressing your top and backing

  • Clip any stray threads or raveling fabrics.  

  • Bring backing that is AT MINIMUM 4 inches larger than your quilt top ON ALL SIDES.

  • Additional charges may apply if mending, squaring, or pressing is needed.  I will contact you first before doing the required additional work. 
     

WHAT’S THE LARGEST SIZE QUILT I CAN SEND YOU?

  • I can quilt a top that is a maximum of 124 inches wide.
     

I’M LOCAL, CAN I DROP IT OFF?

  • Absolutely! I welcome clients to my studio by appointment.
     

WHAT IS YOUR TURNAROUND TIME?

  • This depends on the time of year.  I average a 2-3 week turnaround, but during the holidays and school summer break, this increases.
     

CAN I USE MINKY FOR MY BACKING?

  • Yes!  Quilting looks amazing on Minky!  If you need to piece your Minky, please ensure that the seam will run horizontally when the backing is loaded. 
     

I’M A NEW QUILTER.  CAN I STILL SEND YOU MY QUILT?
