All quilts, pillows and canvas goods are designed and machine-pieced, quilted and assembled by Laura. I work with a small handful of talented, U.S. based quilters and seamstresses on some aspects of production. I do my best to source materials from small, US-based businesses and use only high quality 100% Kona cotton, Belgian linen, natural raw silk, US-grown unbleached cotton batting and hand-waxed canvas.
Because each piece is handmade, there may be slight imperfections. But to me, that’s what makes it special and gives it the mark of the maker. Unless the quilt you purchase is one-of-a-kind, the production time for a quilt is 4 - 6 weeks and 2 - 3 weeks for pillows and canvas goods. If you absolutely need it sooner, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Machine-quilted quilts and pillow covers are machine washable. Use a color catcher in the first wash to prevent color bleeding. Machine wash on delicate in cold water with a mild detergent. Tumble dry low, hang or lay flat to dry. Quilts will crinkle slightly after being washed. Iron to smooth if needed.
Hand-quilted quilts and pillow covers are more delicate and while they can be machine washed and dried, washing by hand and hanging or laying flat to dry is recommended to extend their life.
Non-waxed canvas items should be machine washed on delicate in cold water with a mild detergent. Hang to dry. Iron to smooth if needed.
Waxed canvas items and anything with leather straps should be spot cleaned with a damp rag. Avoid high heat. Waxed canvas will soften with age and wear like leather.
I stand behind the quality of my work and with proper care, your quilts, pillows and canvas should last for many years to come. However, fabric is by no means indestructible. Should you require a repair, please contact me with a description of what happened and I'd be happy to get you fixed up. If the repair is a result of undue wear and tear, a small repair fee will apply.
