Linda did an amazing job. I sent her, literally, almost 100 pieces of clothing, from t-shirts, to bowling towels, to socks, to my mom's old sleeping mask. I wanted bits and pieces of things included that only have meaning to me. She designed the quilt with artistry, care, concern, and sensitivity. I'm thrilled and moved by the result. It was a bigger job than we first anticipated, and yes, it took a bit longer than we expected -- but she took the time to get things exactly right, and I appreciate that. I actually cried when it arrived. Many, many thanks :-)Jul 12, 2016Verified
Linda has been very responsive to my questions and prompt with her answers. Her price seems reasonable for the work involved. Hand quilting is a skill not easily found. She is quilting a quilt top from my husbands great aunt.I have had for over 40 yrs and could never find anyone to complete. Job has not been done yet, but I have every confidence it will be a heirloom to treasure.Jul 7, 2016Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Each quilt I make is unique. I have basic pricing for the bed size. I must add pricing for special material, this is discussed prior to designing and creating the quilt. An expedite fee of $75.00 is charged if the time required for the quilt is less than three months.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?My typical process is - one establish a pricing base with my client, then receive the materials for the quilts, create a layout with the help of my computer, get the approval of the design and then the cutting and sewing begins. Usually the whole process takes THREE MONTHs.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I have always loved sewing, through grade school and high school I sewed most of my clothes. This was a natural progression after working as a draftsmen for years, I combined the two skills to give back to others and amke a difference for them.
