Quilting Services Pricing

Thread and Fabric are more than just the tools of our trade, as in the art of alchemy, they are transmuted with passion and skill into a treasure. Quilts are our passion. Color, design, and cutting-edge technology combine for stunning results when professional quilters complete your project. Thread Alchemy provides our quilting services in the Denver Metro area.

For customers who have purchased a kit or block of the month from us, we offer a 10% discount on edge-to-edge quilting when you return that same quilt to us for finishing within 60 days of the completion of the BOM program (up to 60 days after the purchase of the kit) and 5% if you return it for quilting within 6 months. 

Additionally we offer a loyalty program. Every 10th quilt you bring or send to us for Edge-to Edge quilting will be quilted free of charge.* (of similar size)

Longarm quilting services are available to all customers, local and worldwide. Local customers are seen by appointment.

Basic thread is included in the cost of ALL quilting services, there is an extra charge for specialty threads, and for color changes.
Basic Batting is included in the cost of Edge-to-Edge quilting only, there is an extra charge for specialty batting and batting for all custom quilting. 

Currently, we work hard to maintain a turnaround under 30 days (frequently under 2 weeks, ask when scheduling),

Discounts, when offered, apply to edge-to-edge quilting only. Custom quilting will not be discounted.
