Christmas Quilts




I am now scheduling longarming appointments for your Christmas quilts, if you have that special pieced quilt top that needs to be quilted by Christmas, please give me a call.   
My current pricing:

I give my first time customers a 10% discount. My first time shipping customers will receive free return shipping. I do not charge a set up setup fee and first thread color is included.

I offer a full range of services to meet your quilts needs and your budget. My longarm quilting is 100% completely freehand (hand guided designs) and not done by a computer design system or by Pantographs.

My quilting prices are based on the size of your quilt and complexity of the design. I charge by the square inch. Design time is included in the cost. I design and hand sketch all of my longarm quilting designs from Freehand Edge to Edge treatments to Custom treatments.

I just finished quilting this lovely Heart quilt pieced by the New Hampshire Modern Quilt Guild, it is now ready for binding. This special quilt will be given to a survivor, a victim’s family member, or a first responder following the tragedy at the Pulse nightclub. It is an honor to be able to quilt from love in response to this tragedy.

Longarm Quilting

Since going “public” with my Longarming business, I have met many wonderful people and have had a lovely response to my Longarming business. I truly enjoy being a part of a quilter’s process of making their quilt tops extra special and turning them into quilts.
As a quilter myself, I am well aware of the love, patience and time that goes into piecing a quilt top. Making that important decision of having your quilt top Professionally Longarm Quilted by hiring someone other than yourself is huge decision. I love being able to place those special finishing touches on a customer’s quilt top. The quilter pieces the quilt top with love and I as a longarmer places the “frosting” on that special quilt top; which turns it into a finished quilt never over shadowing the quilters love.
If you quilt you know you always have those quilt tops that are just waiting to be turned into quilts. If you are a quilter or know someone that is and have quilt tops that need to be finished and need to be turned into that special quilt; I would be glad to go over my Longarming Services. First time customers receive a 10% discount and first time shipping customers receive free return shipping.
Happy Quilting!

Behind the Scenes...

A few weeks ago, I traveled to Northern Vermont to save a log from the firewood lot.  I purchased a Cherry log that was ~ 6-7 feet long and ~14" diameter.

After a couple of weekends worth of work, I rough turned 18 bowls from that log.  All are sealed with Anchorseal green wood sealer and will be stored for 6-12 months for drying - the Anchorseal seals the green wood and slows the drying process to eliminate cracking.

These will be inventory for next year. ~Brian
