Longarm Quilting

I am delighted to offer this service here onsite at Cartwheels. Using my APQS Lucey longarm quilting system, your precious patchwork quilt top, wadding and backing can be sewn together into a gorgeous finished quilt. No more basting, spraying, tacking or pinning, Lucey’s roller system does it all for you!

Please call me to make an appointment prior to bringing your quilt top in so that I can ensure we have plenty of time to discuss your requirements including patterns, threads, wadding, backing, binding, costings and time scale.

Patterns

There is a selection of pantograph patterns for you to choose from. A pantograph is a continuous design (printed on a very long piece of paper) which will be followed to produce the stitched pattern completely across the width of the quilt. This is a manual process, no computerisation involved!

Threads

There is a wide range of coloured threads to choose from. Variegated threads are also available.There is a wide range of coloured threads to choose from. Variegated threads are also available.

Wadding

You can provide your own wadding ensuring that it is 8” longer and 8” wider than your quilt top. I hold a stock of both 90” wide and 110” wide wadding from ‘The Warm Company’ if you wish to purchase that here.

Backing

You can provide your own backing fabric ensuring that it is 8” longer and 8” wider than your quilt top. I have a wide range of standard width (44”) 100% cotton fabrics in stock to choose from. I also carry a few designs of extra wide (108”) cotton fabrics for backing larger quilts.

Binding

A two part binding service is also available. Partial binding consists of the binding being stitched around the edge of the quilt and left for you to slip stitch around onto the backing. Alternatively a full binding service can be arranged so that your quilt will be complete when you collect it!

Patchwork & Quilting Shop

Cartwheels Patchwork and Quilting Shop is re-opening on the 8th of July! And it is bigger and better than ever!


We have been working hard to make sure that the area is Covid secure for us all. The measures we have in place are:

1. Hand Sanitizer to be used by everyone on entry to the shop
2. Only 3 people allowed in the shop at any one time
3. 2m signs are in place on the floor to help with distancing
4. Perspex screen around the till and counter
5. Perspex screen around my work station
6. You are required to wear a face covering in the shop


The Craft Centre has been painted throughout and the shop has been extended out into the workshop space to enable social distancing, but this does not mean that we won’t be running workshops and classes in the future, we will rearrange things when the time is right to do so.

I will not be in the shop all of the time (as I still have the boys to home school), so when I am not in the shop, there will be a door bell on the table by the hand sanitizer, please ring it and I will be right with you.

The Mezzanine area will be closed during this time but the work of ‘The Cornish Hare’ and ‘Buttons and Pom Poms’ are available from the shop

There will not be teas served at this time.

Opening hours will be Wednesday to Saturday 10.30 – 2.30 to start with and will be regularly reviewed. If you would like to visit outside of these times, please contact me to arrange a time.

Many thanks for your ongoing support and to those which have continued to support me during this strange time with on-line orders, telephone calls and messages. Hope to see you soon.
