Regarding Quilting

Recently there have been some questions as to quilting; more specifically, my quilting services. Let me answer a few.

Do you still quilt?
Yes I do, though not as often as in the past. The reason is simple: working during the day and trying to learn machine quilting.

What happened to your Etsy shop?
Simply Scaife Handmade has been temporarily closed. While it seemed to have a small following and we did sell some items, it just wasn't making progress. The future of the sight is not decided.

Are you still available for quilt piecing and finishing?
I am, but the process may take a bit longer due to the fact I am working during the day. No pressing projects are on the table right now, but things can change.

What are the fees for your services?

Supplies
All fabrics, batting is reimbursed at cost.
Thread is included in fees.

Shipping is priced at flat rate prices.
Quilts are worked in a smoke free/pet free home either on a frame or in a hoop.

I do ask that all commission work begin with a $50 deposit which will be applied to the final cost.
