Quilt Photo Gallery and Tips for Preparing Your Quilt Tops
Our new hashtag system is helping us create an interactive experience for our Quilt Photo Gallery . It will be a way for you to explore all the gorgeous quilts Nikki Sue has had on her machine, Lucy. You can also get ideas for Allover Quilting from our computerized machines, revisit some our work from past WSQ Quilt Shows, and more!
In addition to our updated photo gallery, we've also updated our tips for preparing your quilts for a longarm quilter. And, at the bottom of that post, you'll find hashtags leading you to more posts about thread, batting, backings, binding and more. There's much to explore and discover!

More Product Knowledge
Not only is there more information within each of our standard products, we’ve eased the selection process with expanded categories, making it easier to find exactly what you’re looking for.
You may notice our New Products category has disappeared. Never fear, simply visit the category you’re interested in and sort by Newest Products! You can also sort alphabetically, by price, or by our most popular products.
We’ve also updated our resource section with hashtags as a way to discover and learn about our products and services. This section of our website will continue to grow, so please bookmark your favorite tag to keep up to date on all the newest posts.
You’ll be able to read product reviews and testimonials from other customers, which may help you make an informed buying decision and will assist us in ensuring we provide only the best products and services. Whether you have an online account or not, you’ll also be able to submit your own reviews to share your praises, thoughts and concerns about specific products.
While we have labored to provide as much information as we can for all of our items, we are still just a simple phone call or email away for any questions you may have. If something’s missing, we will add it! We want to be the best in the business and need your feedback to do that!

For products with more than one option, the website will guide you through the selection process, making your shopping experience better overall – eliminating any reservations you may have about whether you’ve chosen the right options or not. And, of course, we’re still just a phone call away!
All web orders, regardless of account status, will receive order confirmation emails, shipment notifications with tracking numbers, and final invoices with adjusted shipping amounts. While our basic policies & procedures have not changed, our new site will figure more accurate postage estimates and offer clearer information regarding which items are on backorder and other policies.
We will maintain the level of customer service you’ve come to expect from us by calling regarding any backorders and asking any questions to ensure you’re getting what you need. We will continue to educate you on our products and other ways we can help save you time and money, either by recommending other products or suggesting items in our ever-growing library of free resources.

Thank you for your Continued Patronage!
We’ve learned a lot during the process of transitioning to a new website. There were a lot of factors to consider, ranging from what our old website was missing to where we want to see ourselves evolving to. We now look forward to focusing on creating tutorials, videos and content you may find helpful. Don’t forget to join our email newsletter to be notified of new products, sales and more. Follow us on Instagram or Facebook, subscribe to our YouTube channel, and see Wanda's personal quilt related boards over at Pinterest, too!
We aren’t able to cover all the new features here, so we encourage you to explore and see what you can find! There will be more features to follow in due time, so please be sure to continue to provide feedback on how we can continue to better serve you. You’re the reason we’ve made this change. We listen to and value our customers and know we wouldn’t be here without you!
