Long Arm Service FAQs

  • How much does it cost?

    • For an all over design, we have a flat rate ($.02) per square inch for most patterns. A dense pattern will be slightly more.

    • Custom work will be based on the amount of time involved and number of stitches.  We can provide a rough estimate before beginning your custom quilting project.

  • What is included in the long arm service?

    • The quilting of your project with your choice of thread color and stitch design. 

  • What are add-on options?

    • We can square up your quilt after it has been quilted. We can sew your binding and/or provide an embroidered quilt label with your desired information. There is an hourly charge for these services. 

  • What do I need to provide for The Charmed Needle to complete my quilt?

    • We will need the backing fabric and batting. Or we can gather the materials for you. It’s up to you!

  • Does The Charmed Needle have a requirement for the backing material?

    • Yes!  In order for our quilt machine to work at peak performance, we need a larger backing than the quilt top. Approximately 3-4 inches on all sides of the backing allows for our machine to move smoothly over your quilt top.  So if your quilt top is 40” x 60”, your backing should measure at least 46” x 66”

  • Does The Charmed Needle have a batting preference?

    • We can use whatever you prefer! Our choice is an 80/20 cotton batting.
