Forms of Payment Accepted

On site acceptance of Credit Cards and Debit Cards

I accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover cards as well as Debit cards.

My system will accept Tap and Go transactions as well as chip and  PIN.  Debit flash cards have a limit of $100.00 per transaction and chip and Pin limits follow the limits set by your bank.  A digital receipt can be sent to you by email.

Interac e-transfers

I have used this method with customers as well.  If you have an interac debit card, and online banking, check to see if your bank offers this service to you.  If you are unfamiliar with the procedure, there are instructions online with YouTube or check directly with your financial institution on how to do it.  Depending on the type of bank services you subscribe to, the charge for you to avail yourself of this service varies.  This will not result in any charges to me and no extra charge will be added to your bill.

I also accept cheques and of course cash.  If you are local to my area, we can arrange for payment before you pick up your quilt.

Please note there is a minimum charge of $50.00 for the quilting service

​Digital Pantographs or Edge to Edge and Semi Custom work

Pantographs or Edge to Edge is probably the most commonly used.  It involves using a digital design spread over the entire quilt.  Individual blocks and borders are not considered as a separate element.  The size of the design is first chosen then it is chained across the width of the quilt from left to right.  Because the designs are digital, their size can very quickly be changed to suit the quilt.  Personally I recommend choosing what are known as "nestable" designs.  After the first row is quilted out, the next row is shifted and nudged up so that they nest together.  This eliminates what I call the "banding effect".  Choosing a design that does not nest in this fashion, eg. a square, will result in a very visible line pattern between the rows.  Some designs are actually self-nesting and simply require a nudge upwards to be evenly spaced with the previous row.  Others, such as a wavy pattern requires up to a 50% shift and nudging upwards to achieve the proper uniform look.  The cost for pantograph quilting starts at $.02 per square inch.  Extra dense treatments will be negotiable.

I also offer semi custom work where blocks, sashing and borders are treated individually. The price depends on how much detail you wish, how may different designs are used etc.  This will be discussed during the consultation. 

Extra charges include thread cost @ $.01 per yard and a new titanium needle charge of $3.00.  Extra labour time is charged @ $10.00 hour.  If you choose a digital design that is part of my collection there is no extra charge.  If, however, you choose one from a number of online sources, you will be charged for that cost.  Pantographs online are priced at approximately $15.00USD
