About Pamela

I am pleased to offer long arm quilting service to the public on our state of the art computerized Statler Stitcher sewing machine. This new machine has over 3000 programmed patterns to choose from, including edge to edge or all over patterns, to custom patterns for blocks, borders, corner stones, and sashings. The machine is very accurate in both measuring, and pattern machining, so you can expect to see consist patterns, accurately place on your quilt. The patterns available range from simple geometric patterns to very complex patterns such as leafs, feathers, and flowers. We also can offer patterns for baby, children’s, art, and whole cloth quilts. We also can do custom programming for those who want a unique pattern quilted. Custom pattern designs and programs are available at an extra cost.

The machine table and rollers can accommodate a quilt up to 12 feet long, and can stitch quilts this full distance, in one set up, if required. We offer a large selection of colors in thread, and we also offer a range of backing, and batting material in our shop.

Custom Quilt Display Rack Break Down Type For Sale

IMG_0855

This is one of our sample custom made quilt racks.  It is designed to quickly set up or take down at quilt shows or in your home or showroom.  The A-Frame shape is hinged at the center of the two main vertical support sections, so it can be folded into a easy to move or load into a van or mini van.  We designed this to be are large as possible, yet still fit into a Dodge mini van.  When folded, the sizes are as follows, 84″ high, 48″ wide, 5.5″ thick.  When folded opened as in the picture, the height is about 83″ depending on how far opened you set the four legs. This one is make of Cherry hardwood, with brass plated steel hardware.  The foot of each leg has a rubber foot to help prevent any slipping of the legs on polished floors.  Each one of the horizontal cross support can also be removed, since each is held in place with a 1/4-20 decorative brass machine screw.  You may order various length horizontal supports if you wish, in fact this design can be ordered shorter, narrower, and or wider if you wish.  This design is very sturdy…..We estimate that it can support over 125 pounds of quilts or fabric provided that the weight is evenly dispersed on front and back horizontals.  We sometimes set up at outdoor art shows, and we needed a more stable display stand to show our quilts without fear of the unit falling over in brisk wind.  This design is the solution, it is very stable in wind provide the feet are all setting on a reasonably level surface.  If you need to set up on a hill for example, you could open the legs further than in the picture if need be, however we recommend the optional cross members that are designed for keep the legs from spreading opened for this application. 
If you are interested in ordering this quilt display rack or a custom display, please email us.  Custom pricing ranges from $375 to $800 plus shipping depending on the type of materials and sizes ordered.  Thanks, Pam

T-Shirt Quilts Make Nice Gifts!

Just a few weeks ago, a customer called us and asked us if we could make a special T-Shirt Quilt for her as a gift for her loved one before Christmas. Although I was pretty well booked, my husband John said he would have time to help me complete the quilt, and have it done before Christmas. T-Shirt quilts make wonderful gifts, as was this one, now completed. Much like a memory quilt (with pictures on the quilt top) T-shirt quilts bring back those warm memories of that loved one and times spent together, while adding warmth while the the quilt is in use. This is just one of many possible quilt top patterns, and in this case, just what our customer wanted. John and I both enjoy sharing the joys of Christmas with our very special customers!

Merry Christmas!

John and I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Although life is full of challenges of all sorts, it brings peace to our hearts to know that we have Jesus Christ in our home and in our lives. We pray that this Christmas season will bring you closer to our savior, that you may know Him better and better.

May God bless you and keep you safe.

Custom Quilt & Throw Pillows & Bed Skirt

Recently I completed a custom quilted bedroom package including a custom quilt, throw pillows, and bed skirt that you see in my customer’s picture here. The package also included custom pillow shams not shown in this picture. If you have interest in a bedroom custom made quilting package, I also piece and custom quilt curtains or drapes to match your interior design. In this package, I pieced all the various options mentioned and custom quilted them, including all finish edge binding, complete and ready to use. I have also discussed a custom wall hanging to match this bedroom set or for decoration in another room with my customer Judy. A special thanks to Judy for supplying this photograph of her completed quilt set!
