The great thing about creating a quilt is that you have the ability to make it your very own. Instead of choosing just one of your favorite patterns or designs, you can make the decision to incorporate each one into your quilt top. Here at Bits n Pieces Quilt & Fabric Shoppe in New Hampshire, we can provide you with an array of brilliant fabrics as well as the help you need to make your quilt something to be proud of.
In the past, quilts were traditionally made from scraps left over from other sewing projects. As time went on however, quilting quickly became a way of representing the owner or a momentous occasion. That's why we take the time to help ensure that your work of art becomes a treasured heirloom with our custom quilting services. We specialize in professional long arm machine quilting on our computerized quilting machines, adding beautiful designs to accent your quilt top, bonding it to the batting and backing. The great thing about long arm quilting is that it allows for a fast turnaround, ensuring that your quilt is in your possession sooner rather than later.
We do however understand that after taking the time to pick out just the right patterns, there is a certain draw towards completing the quilt on your own. This is why Bits n Pieces now offers long arm rental services. You can receive a lesson and we'll be sure to walk you through multiple ways of using the machines to find the right fit for you. This way, you can tell your friends and family that you made the quilt all on your own!
