Q. Do you work with stretchy fabric backs such as Minkee and Fleece?
A. Sorry, I don't. The static electricity from these fabrics can damage expensive computers, so I won't risk my expensive investment.
Q. If I already purchased my own batting, can you use it?
A. Yes, so long as it has been cared for properly against extreme heat or freezing temperatures. Otherwise, it will fall apart during the first washing. Batting should be at least 3" larger than your quilt top on ALL 4 sides. Please see "Prepare Quilt.
Q. I live in a remote area, do you supply batting?
A. Yes, Hobbs - 80/20, 100% Warm and Natural and 100% bonded polyester.
See Quilting Supplies tab to find the one that best meets your needs.
Q. What are Folds and Puckers?
A. When a quilt top is not pressed well and won't lay flat, folds and puckers may occur during the quilting process. It is very difficult to quilt when extra fullness is present on the quilt. But rest assured, that I will do my very best to work most of these out.
Q. What if I can't find a pattern I am looking for, like Mermaids or Penguins?
A. Not to worry. I have hundreds of patterns to choose from and some very unusual ones too! I can also research my pattern vendor website's to find just the right pattern for your special project.
Q. How much of a deposit do you require?
A. No deposit is required. However the total balance will be due when I'm ready to deliver or ship your finished quilt.
Q. When you mail back my finished quilt top, will you insure it on the RETURN?
A. Yes for up to $200.00 is standard.
