Location and History:

Thread Bear Quilting is located in Southeast Michigan between Tecumseh and Adrian in Raisin Township. Hours are by appointment.

I have been sewing garments, doing hand embroidery and cross stitch since I was 12 years old. I started machine embroidery in the late 90's and finally got hooked on quilting in 2001. After struggling with machine quilting on my domestic sewing machine, I finally realized that I needed to take it to the next level -- longarm quilting! I love sharing my expertise and assisting others to finish their quilts.

The bottom line is that this is not just a business to me and I will treat your quilts as if they were my own.


All quilting is done on a computerized Gammill Statler Stitcher. Thread Bear Quilting offers every type of machine quilting from edge-to-edge (all over) designs to custom hand-guided work at reasonable prices, high quality and with a fast turnaround. 

I also have expertise in creating digital quilting designs so if you have something unique that you want designed for your quilt, let me know and we can discuss price (typically starts at $35 for a simple design).

Additional services include partial or full machine binding and creation of complete quilts on commission.


My prices range from simple edge-to-edge designs at $.015 per square inch to complex, hand-guided custom work which can run $.05 per square inch or higher depending on the complexity. This means you can expect a small quilt with a simple design to run $60.00 whereas a large complex quilt might be in the $300.00 range. If I don't have a design you like, I can order one and even can create a one-of-a-kind quilting design for you.

When we meet for our initial consultation, we will discuss what you want for the quilt. Be sure to tell me if this will be for a competition. Some shows are no longer allowing longarm quilting unless it is a collaborative effort, so we'll need to discuss what your goals are.

If you do not need a consulation and want an all-over/edge-to-edge simple design, you can drop your quilts off at our Ann Arbor drop-off (Pink Castle Fabrics). 

First time customers get a 10% discount on their first quilt. If you refer a customer and they use my services you get a coupon for an additional 10% off your next quilt. Note that these discounts are off of an equivalent edge-to-edge price and must be used within one calendar year.
