Gammill Quilting Service
Have your project quilted with our automated long-arm quilting service.
We are really excited to now be running two Automated Long-Arm Quilting Machines. They are both located in our new premises and working tirelessly. We hope to cut our waiting list down to a more reasonable length in the New Year.
We offer a wide variety of patterns, including traditional, novelty and themed with no extra charge for more detailed patterns. Thread is included in the price - you can choose from a variety of threads, including YLI & King Tut Varigated, Presencia Solids and KingStar Metallics. If needed we will give guidance as to which pattern and thread would most suit your project.
Although wadding and backing fabric is not included in the quilting price, we stock over 50 bolts of 108" wide backings and a variety of 90" & 120" wide waddings in store. Again we are happy to discuss which will best suit your project and budget.
"Pams real talent is machine embroidery and running the two huge Long Arm quilting machines. I stood in wonder as she gently coaxed a very wonky top into a lovely quilt the maker will be proud to show off. Her attention to detail is amazing. They have the largest selection of extra wide backings I have ever seen! There is a waiting list to get your tops quilted but in my opinion it is well worth the wait". - Dawn Cameron-Dick
Edge to Edge Quilting (all over pattern)
Any pattern £1.80 per square foot. e.g. 80" x 90" (approx double size) = £90.00
For the present we no longer offer free-hand custom quilting. We hope to resume this service at a later date.
In order to give you the best finished result, we ask the following;
- Tops need to be pressed and all threads snipped.
- Backing needs to be squared (cut straight with no steps) and at least 8" larger than the top (4" top, bottom, and sides).
- Wadding also needs to be 8" larger
- Any fabric pleats, folds or flanges need to be sewn down, and embellishments that could snag the machine need to be removed.
- Please press any particularily lumpy seams (e.g. pin-wheel middles) open to flatten them as much as possible.
Please note, we have a waiting list so be sure to book your slot as soon as possible. You can book your project in anytime, but we ask you to bring it in at least 2 weeks before the booked date to ensure we have everything we need.
