Here is a checklist before
sending your quilt

______Your quilt top needs to be free of holes, and excess thread. A simple shake once you are finished can eliminate quite a few threads!  Be mindful, NO HOLES. Holes in quilt tops can damage your top and my machine.
______Your quilt should be pressed well and ready to quilt. If I need to press your quilt, there will be a $10.00 charge. A good
pressing will show any not flat areas that I may need to address during the quilting process.
_____If your quilt top is not flat, then you will have puckers and tucks in the quilting - there is no going around that. I will do the very best I can, but extra fabric will create tuck and folds on the quilt. Please ask me if you have questions. 
_____Quilt backing and batting must be at least 4-6 inches bigger on ALL sides, no exceptions. If I have to add additional fabric to your backing there will be a charge.
______Please make sure your quilt is free of any pet hair. I do advertise as a pet free zone and your top can leave hair all over my studio.  If I need to clean your top or backing you may be charged an additional fee. 

Please note - I try to select the color of thread that will best blend with the fabrics and colors of your quilt.  My main objective is for your quilt to show not my quilting.   

Preparing your quilt for quilting is a very important step to insure a beautiful outcome of the finished project.  Many quilters don't realize how important these steps can be.  The amount of time and care you have put into your top will determine the outcome of the finished quilt.  If you have worked lots of hours on it up to this point we need to insure the finishing is the best possible it can possibly be.  
As a longarm quilter I cannot undo uneven seams, wonky borders, shredded edging, missing stitches or too-short backings.  A good longarmer CAN, however, make the best of what you have by minimizing mistakes and maximizing the beauty of your work

Turnaround Time
I work on the quilts in the order they are received.  I can let you know how many quilts are before yours once your quilt has been received.  If you have a special timing request, please let me know before shipping your quilt.  I reserve the right to charge an additional fee for special deadline request.

Shipping
Please pack your quilt in a plastic bag to protect it from moisture during shipping.  Also, please make sure you have used a sturdy box, enclose your name, address, phone number and email address for me.  I will return your quilt using the carrier of your choice or the most cost effective method. If you would like additional insurance please let me know.  Here is my shipping address:
Joanne Lendaro
529 Olde Farms Road
Grantham, NH   03753
603-865-5033


 Lastly,    Quilt Love Charges                           
          I am exceptionally busy, and I am truly, truly, thankful that I have you as a customer.  But, with that being said I need to make the best use of my time to get all of these beautiful quilts quilted. I really don’t mind working with you to fix the little things that may require a little attention but…..when I must put additional time into your quilt top or backing because you have neglected to do any of the following, I may have to charge you an additional charge.  If I am working on your top or backing doing something that you should have done, I am not working on finishing someone else’s quilt. I do not ask anything that any other machine quilter would request, please work with me on this. I am spending too much time on things that you should have done before giving your top and backing to me.


If you have any questions please let me know I am more than happy to work with you.

Together we can get your tops finished and into beautiful quilts that will be loved!
