Montly: Plan to drop off your quilt top or pick up a quilt from Robbie Sutton our Long arm quilter and is the owner of Pieceful Hollow Designs.  She visits the shop the first and third Sunday of the month between 12 and 1p to accept your tops and review quilting options with you.  That's Top Off Day:-)) If you can't make it on that day, you can leave your tops at the shop after you pick out a quilting design from her design book.   Once Robbie picks it up you are well on your way to having a finished quilt!  Robbie will call you when your quilt is done, and you can pick it up at the QuiltBug on any Top Off Day, or any time we are open.
