Introducing our long-arm quilting services!

Our new Gammill machine at work

We are super excited to launch a quilting service for our customers. You know who you love making the tops, but lose steam when it comes to the quilting. You can't move on to the next project, because you feel guilty about all the unfinished tops languishing in your sewing cupboard. Or you're on a deadline: the baby's coming next week and you have to work overtime!
Now you can bring your pieced quilt tops to Craft Land and we will quilt it for you! We are offering an economical edge-to-edge quilting service, as well as sandwiching and basting. We will even bind your quilt if you want.

Here's a breakdown of the quilting services:
Edge-to-Edge quilting: We will sandwich the layers for you, and quilt it with the design of your choice. We'll tell you how much backing, batting and thread you'll need and help you choose it. If your backing fabric needs to be pieced, we can do that too!
Basting: Bring us the top, the batting and the backing and we will put the layers together for you and baste-stitch it so you can do the quilting yourself. This is great for those of us who don't have the space to sandwich a quilt at home, and don't fancy crawling around on the floor pinning.
Binding (totally optional): We'll tell you how much fabric you need to give us, and we'll do the rest. We cut the strips, piece them together and sew the double-folded binding to the front of your quilt. If you want, we can also machine-stitch or hand-stitch the binding to the back.
All the info on pricing and how to prepare your quilt are available in Craft Land now.
