Long Arm Quilting Services
ScruffyQuilts is pleased to offer edge-to-edge computerized long arm quilting services with a Gammill Statler Stitcher, we've nicknamed Doodles. Doodles uses Isocord 100% polyester thread and Hobb’s 80/20 batting. Your quilt is precious to us because we know how much hard work and creativity went into it. Because of this, we take our time, handling each quilt with the same degree of care and attention to detail that we would give our own.
Currently we are NOT accepting quilts with 3-dimensional piecing, quilts with flanges or embroidery.
Contact: You can bring your quilt in to the shop and one of our sales associates will help you with your thread and pattern selection. If you want to speak with Katrina directly about your quilt, just call the shop first to make sure she's on duty that day.

Quilt top - The straighter and cleaner your quilt, the nicer the quilting will be. Please do not include embellishments -- it's better to add them after the quilting has been completed because they can trip the foot.
- Avoid wavy borders: Measure the length of the quilt in the center and cut your border to that length, pin on the ends and sew with the longer piece on the feed dogs; repeat for the width of the quilt. Edges or borders that are on the bias may stretch, ripple and cause tucks.
- Square-up and trim quilt top to its final size.
Backing – Make sure the backing is 8 inches longer/wider than the quilt top. For example, if the top is 60” x 72”, then the backing needs to be 68” x 80”. Make sure the edges are even.
Grooming - Press well, making sure seams are all pressed properly, and trim loose threads from top and backing. Very lumpy seams will cause thread breaks during quilting.
