Binding Your QuiltWe are very happy to help you with your binding and we offer a 2½in double fold straight of grain binding with mitred corners. We can either machine sew your binding to the quilt top for you to hand finish, or we can hand finish your binding for you. If you wish to use this service just let us know and we will be happy to give you a quote. To find out how much fabric you need just do this simple calculation. ♥ Add up the four sides of the quilt (in inches) plus a further 12 inches to allow for joining and corners. ♥ Divide the total by 42 which will give you the number of strips you need to cut. ♥ Multiply by 2.5 to give you the total amount of fabric you need in inches. For example if a quilt measures 70in x 90in. 70 + 70 + 90 + 90 + 12 = 332 inches.332 / 42 = 7.97.9 * 2.5 = 19.75 inches (50 cms)

A little bit about our Gammill Statler StitcherWe were the first shop in the UK to own a Gammill Statler Stitcher and we've never looked back! Our longarm quilting service is now firmly established and an integral part of The Quilt Room. We have what is called a Gammill Statler Stitcher and this means our longarm quilting machine has a unique combination of a Gammill sewing head and a computer and software program, invented and developed by Paul Statler. This means that the machine is computer guided enabling it to stitch almost any design including intricate patterns. The Statler Stitcher allows us to determine accurate pattern and block size, stitches per inch, repetitions of the pattern and the offset of the pattern.Gammill is a world wide renowned company that has been manufacturing its own brand of quilting machines since 1979 and in the early 1980s became the first company to develop a large-throat sewing machine on tracks which could be operated from both sides. This created a massive impact on the quilting world, as it became possible to complete a quilt in a matter of hours rather than days.
