How To Commission a Quilt:
  1. Contact the quilter via email with your commission request.
  2. Discuss your needs with the quilter.
  3. The quilter will send you an email with a list of all the choices that have been agreed upon along with the price and completion date.
  4. You will then let the quilter know, via email, that you agree to it.
  5. Once agreed upon, 50% of the price is due immediately. (This covers the cost of materials.)
    There can be no refunds once the first payment has been made because the quilter will have already begun work on the quilt commission.
  6. The remaining 50% is due upon completion of the quilt.
    Once payment has been received and cleared by the bank (for example) the quilt will be immediately mailed to the buyer.
  7. All quilts that are mailed must go by insured and trackable post or courier depending upon your choice of methods.
    The cost of shipping and insurance will be added to the price of the quilt commission.
About Quilting Services
Clients are asked:
  • to trim all threads and any excess fabric from their quilt top.
  • to press seams as flat as possible.
  • to sew a stay stitch around the outside edge to stabilize the quilt.
  • to square the back which must be at least three inches larger than the top on each side and no larger than 116 inches wide.
  • to send batting which is the same size as the backing but not attached. However, it is preferable to purchase the batting through the longarmer where possible as it saves on shipping charges.
  • to choose machine quilting thread if they plan to send the threads to be used. Many longarm quilters prefer to use their own thread.
  • not to use sheets as backings.
  • not to send used fabric.
  • to be sure all fabrics are clean.
  • to remove all pet hair which damages machines.
  • choose only bonded varieties of polyester batting, if polyester is their choice.
  • to include the original wrapper for the batting they are sending because their quilting needs vary.
  • to discuss all of their needs and choices with the longarm quilter beforehand.
  • to specify the type of quilting they desire.
Please note:
  • The criteria listed above are general and do not apply to every longarm quilter.
  • It is best to discuss everything before the work starts so that client and quilter understand exactly what is requested.
  • There can be no refunds because of the setting up and all work involved.
