Introduction: I started out offering all aspects of custom quilting, and also offer all types of alterations, custom sewing and some home decoration sewing (curtains, pillows). Please see some of my FAQ to help you know more about pricing and how I work with customers. I do have a minimum charge - so please take that into account if you have a small project (repair / alteration). If you saw reference to discount, I am currently offering 10% off any custom quilt booked by August 31 (and if you have a project you would like in time for Christmas, August /September may be the latest I can take new projects to be completed by Christmas! Note also that I am in Mesquite, and if that seems too far from where you are , I may be able to meet you at an agreed halfway point. Most of the custom quilts I create are t-shirt quilts or memory quilts. We meet up once to decide the shirts/garments you want out in the quilt: then continue design dialogue via phone / text pics. I enjoy making special quilted gifts that families will cherish! Once I know more about your project request, I can share examples of my recent work similar to your request.

Amazing, amazing amazing!!! We had last minute change and this wizard literally used magic!!! She hemmed a wedding dress within hours !!!! She would have came to us or offered to come to her home, we opted to come to her for lack of time and scheduling but she was very helpful and willing to do whatever it took to get the job done. Oh and let me say she’s doing all this while retired !!!! I’m telling you this lady is a beast!!! Her son does wedding photography too if you have a need! It’s like that scene from hangover where they deliver the tuxedos in a van on the highway, minus the van , tuxedos , Bradley Cooper and a drunken criminal filled vegas weekend , other than that same scenario!!!! All jokes aside this lady is a talented sweet seamstress/tailor/quilt maker who will go above and beyond to get the job done. ❤️ Thank you Lori you truly are a blessing.

Mrs. Lori was awesome. She came to my home to cut and hem my two story curtains while hung (unable to take down) that I ordered to long. She did a perfect job and she made sure to get my input on how I wanted the length and also offered her professional input to assist in my decision. She is very friendly, excellent customer service, professional and her work is awesome!!! I would recommend her to anyone! She did one of my friends Curtains and she was very satisfied as well.

Excellent communication and very professional, Lori offered ideas and insights to enhance the quality of my project. She was very thorough in confirming details of the project, and willing to do some extra leg work to tie together different elements of the project. I would highly recommend Lori and look forward to working with her on the next project.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Regarding quilt projects: I do have a base price per shirt / block for t-shirt and similar type quilts. # shirts / finished size are the main variables. Regarding any sewing / alterations - I have a minimum $20 charge. If you only have one repair / alteration, depending on your timeline, you may want to consolidate projects. * the $20 minimum is not PER ITEM, rather per project group: i.e., 2 pr pants and a zipper replacement - the $20 minimum would apply to that batch of items.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    For many projects, it helps to have pictures from you to begin a quote, whether it is a garment repair / alteration, or a quilt design / idea that you have. In the case of quilt projects, I will often set a zoom or facetime call to cover more details before we meet up (this saves us both time and travel!). For quilt / custom sewing projects, I will often meet customers at local fabric store to get needed supplies and at least start the design. I will provide estimate for cost and time to complete; and may need to update you thru the course of the project. When project requires materials / supplies, you may be required to pay for these up front.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have been sewing since I was 6; learned thru 4-H, local courses and thru many willing friends and relatives that have encouraged my love for sewing and design.
