Longarm Quilting Services
At Quilting Stitches, your quilt is crafted on a hand-guided Gammill Classic Vision 2.0 longarm quilting machine in a smoke-free studio. Currently I am offering pantographs, often called edge-to-edge or roll patterns as well as semi and fully custom quilting.
Pricing for my Gammill Longarm Quilting Services is as follows (and subject to change):
Minimum Charge: 50 dollars CDN dependant on quilting design/style chosen.
Basting: $.005 per square inch & up
Choose from 2, 3 or 4" increments to baste the quilt so that you can finish the quilting either by hand or on your own domestic machine.
Basic All Over Meander: $.015 per square inch & up
A random all over meander over entire quilt top. No attention to appliques or quilt blocks applies to this style of quilting.
Edge to Edge Quilting: $.02 per square inch & up
Choose from a wide variety of edge-to-edge patterns. With this type of quilting, specific blocks & borders are ignored shall we say to create the edge-to-edge look. Prices depend on the pattern chosen due to the density of stitches & complexity of the design.
All-over Freehand Quilting: $.025 per square inch & up
Designs are applied freehand all over the quilt & are usually used for every day quilts that are going to be used a lot.
Semi Custom Quilting: $.03 per square inch & up
When you have sections of the quilt you want quilted differently; could be the main area of the quilt is a pantograph but you want something different in the borders OR maybe you want an all-over free-hand design but need to pay attention to applique sections.
Full Custom: $25/hour & up depending on intensity
This type of quilting where patterns are set out with stitch in the ditch (SID) work & different stitch designs are performed in each block. All stitching is hand guided.

Frequent Quilter Program
Have lots of tops to be quilted? If you have 3 tops quilted by Quilting Stitches, you will receive 50% off of your 4th top! (Pantograph quilting only; cannot be combined with any other discount).
For each referral of 1st time clients to Quilting Stitches, you will receive a 25% discount! (Pantograph quilting only; discount will be applied off your next quilt once your referral has their quilt quilted; cannot be combined with any other discount).
Fullness &/or puckers within a quilt & its borders cannot be quilted out. I cannot guarantee that puckers & tucks will not be sewn in. Excessive fullness in borders may result in the quilt not being square. The flatter your quilt top is prior to quilting, the better the finished quilt will be.
Longarm machines are mechanical devices. We do our best to ensure perfect results but on rare occasions, mechanical problems can occur which may result in minor damage to your quilt.
