Please note, I am currently suspending my repair service, and during the pandemic will not be taking in any new quilts for repair. You can still contact me if you would like an opinion on your repair needs, just understand that it will be likely next year before I can think about taking in more. I no longer take severely damaged quilts that require all handwork.
How to Contact Me for a Quilt Repair – 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 minor applique repair by hand, but I do not hand quilt, and cannot add hand quilting to patches. I no longer take severely damaged quilts that require all handwork. The customer is responsible for supplying all fabrics needed for the repairs.
If you are local to Western North Carolina and have a well loved quilt needing repair, we can find a place to meet either at my studio near Mountain Home or at Beginnings Quilt Shop in Hendersonville. 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.
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.
