Valet Service
Take advantage of our valet service! If you bring your quilt in to us at least 2 business days prior to your rental session, we will have your quilt properly loaded and lined up on the machine with your thread choice threaded and bobbin wound and in the machine ready to go! We'll make sure your tension is set and the needle is ready to start quilting when you are. This service is $25.

  • Have a design in mind and plan out the quilting path you intend to take with your quilt.  
  • Plan ahead to make full use of the time frame in which you have been scheduled.
