We have two wonderful longarm quilters who will pick up your quilt tops and return them quilted the next month.  Both longarm quilters are requesting that you call or email them to make a reservation for your quilt to be quilted.  They are trying to limit the number of quilts they take in every month so they don’t overwhelmed by the number of quilts coming their way.  They both have a limit of one quilt per month.
