How do I purchase a quilt?
It's easy!
Email the quilter with your purchase request.
Include the following information:
  • the name of the quilt you wish to purchase.
  • your name, address, and a telephone number where you can be reached.
  • where there are choices, include your preferred method of payment.
  • a request for shipping costs, including insurance.
    Note: In most cases you can choose your preferred method of shipping. The method you choosing must include insurance and therefore will have a tracking number.

Remit payment to the seller promptly.

Please note:

  • Checks and most other payments must clear the bank before the quilt will be mailed.
  • When PayPal is used, quilts will be mailed right away.

How do I choose the right quilt size?
  • It is very important to be sure of the size you need before making a purchase!

  • This is why each quilt description includes its size in inches as well as its designation, such as, "Crib, Lap/Throw, Queen", etc.
  • Designations can vary quite a bit. Example - a Queen size designation can measure from 76 to 84 inches in width and from 90 to 104 inches in length. Mattress lengths and heights very in each bed size category, too.
  • Measure your bed. - Calculate how much overhang you want at the sides and bottom of your bed. - Think of whether you need added length for tucking under a pillow. - Will you be using pillow shams and just need your quilt to go under your pillows? - Will you simply lay the quilt over your pillows with no tuck? - Will you want be using your quilt with a bed skirt or dust ruffle?
  • Do the math to ensure that you are ordering the right size.

Can I commission a quilt?
    Yes, many of our quilters accept commissions.

  • If you want a quilt in a specific design and in your preferred colours, choose a quilter from our list of those who accept commissions, and contact them with your request.
  • Look at the quilter's work on his/her web pages. Contact those whose work interests you. Discuss the cost, completion date, etc. Then choose the quilter you prefer and place your order.
  • When commissioning a quilt, 50% of the quilt's cost (before shipping & insurance are added) is due immediately. The quilter uses this money to purchase the necessary supplies. The remainder is due upon the quilt's completion.
  • Because these are special orders, commissioned quilts are non-refundable.
