Longarm setup process 

  1.  Please provide a picture of your quilt--front, back and close-up before you send it.
  2. Send fabric remnants with your quilt if you want the best thread & tension match.
  3. The perimeter seams need to stay-stitched so they do not unravel before quilting.
  4. Provide your longarm pattern or select from Thimbleina's.
  5. Square your quilt top, press your seams flat, and trim clumps and long unraveled threads. Dark threads will show through white fabric and  look unsightly on your quilt.
  6.  Make certain your borders lay flat. If they do not, fix them before you send them to us. Flat borders make nice quilted products.
  7. Square your quilt backing. Backing must be a minimum of 6 inches wider & longer than your quilt top. (This means 3" on top, 3" on bottom, 3" on each side.) This is required for pinning to the canvases. If you are short on fabric you can add strips of any fabric as needed to the sides or top & bottom. The 6" needed for loading will not be quilted so it can be anything.
  8.  Mark the top of your quilt if it is not obvious. Use a safety pin or a bit of fabric.
  9.  Provide batting the same size as the backing. You can also order from us. Please advise at the time of order which option you prefer.
  10.  Mail all items to  Thimbleina LLC , P.O. Box 839, Spicewood, Texas 78669
  11.  When your quilt is received we will call to provide an accurate price quote. Please provide your phone number and email.

After quilting we will trim your quilt square and send back to you unless you request us to complete the binding.

We reserve the right to send your top & backing back to you untouched if not properly prepared. In certain cases with your permission, we may choose to do what is essential for an added fee.

Shipping Advice

Wrap your items in sealed plastic to protect them in case the package is mishandled, torn or wet.

When you send us your quilt you have to decide on the size of package depending on what you are sending.
We use USPS to return your quilts.  Based on the size and weight we will choose the best rate for return.

Please let us know if you would like your stitching to be, minimal, medium, loose, soft, or dense. Let us know what row height you would like for your pattern.

Labor charges are calculated on the time the machine is actually stitching. “Additional charges may have to be added for adjustments that we may have to make to the quilt (after a conversation with the customer).”
