We have 5 computerized Statler quilting machines by Gammill. Page Johnson oversees the quilting process from design selection to pattern layout and finishing. With thousands of computerized quilting designs and hundreds of thread colors to choose from we can create a custom look for your special quilts at a very affordable cost to you. Typically an overall design quilting pattern is completed in less than 30 days starting at $28.00 per square yard. That means a lap quilt is less than $100 including batting and thread while a large king sized quilt will cost about $250.

We offer 10,000+ different quilting designs to meet your needs, With 9-10 battings available, from basic polyester to 100% wool or even black 80/20, you will find the batting you need in the right amount. Over 400 thread colors ensures that we will have the right one for your quilt. We can finish your binding from basic machine applied to high end hand turned, with or without piping.
Quilting to "Save" or Restore" vintage quilt tops often requires repairs and adjustments to older quilts. Not everything is perfect but we find that rejuvinating the lost family heirlooms can be a special event.
