If you are local and have a well loved quilt needing repair, my rates are very reasonable. The total amount is completely dependent on the amount of damage and the length of time it takes to fix. Repair costs in the past have ranged from my minimum of $50 to over $300, depending on what has to be done. I am willing to do quilts mailed in, if you are willing to pay the postage both ways. Typically I need to keep your quilt for a few weeks to work it into my schedule.
Just send me an email at frommycarolinahome (at) gmail (dot) com with the subject line of Quilt Repair Inquiry and let me know what you need. Please include the dimensions of the quilt, along with four to five pictures of the damage, one overall and several close up. BE SURE TO SET YOUR CAMERA OR PHONE TO MEDIUM SIZE PICTURES. My email will not allow receipt of attachments of several large 5mb pictures all at once. Set your picture size to under 500 kb. I answer inquiries within 24 hours most often the same day within just a few hours, so if you do not hear back from me in 48 hours, please check your spam folder. If I haven’t answered you, it means I didn’t get your email. Please resize your pictures smaller and try again.
Please understand that what I do is repair damage usually by patching areas that are torn. I can reconstruct edges, reattach appliques and rebind quilts by machine. I can do some patchwork, seam repair and applique repair by hand, but I do not hand quilt, and cannot add hand quilting to patches. The customer is responsible for supplying all fabrics needed for the repairs.
NOTE – I have more quilts right now than I can handle, and will not be taking any new repairs until February 2020. Please check back with me then.
Here are some of my posts of repairs so you can see some of my work, or to help you do your own repairs if you wish. Comments from customers can be seen at the bottom of this page.
