Welcome to Designs by Laura Jo!!

Welcome to Designs by Laura Jo. I'm sure there are a few things you might be wondering. Like, Who am I? What type of equipment do I use? How much do I charge for my services? Well, I hope to be able to answer these questions and more.

Who is Designs by Laura Jo?

I am the mother of an adorable little boy, aged 2. I have been sewing and piecing quilts for over 4 years. I have been machine quilting for 2 years. Recently I have begun designing my own quilts, several of which are currently for sale in my Etsy shop. I love to sew and quilt, and I know how hard it can be at times. I know how frustrating it is to have something not work out exactly as I would have liked. That is why I want to do everything I can to help you complete your quilts.

What kind of equipment do you use?

I own two sewing machines. My first sewing machine I was given several years ago when I began sewing is a Janome Harmony. It helped me complete many projects, and was a great starter machine. I recently purchased a Singer HD110, professional grade sewing machine.

I also own a Gammill Classic Plus longarm quilting machine. I have been quilting on the Gammill for about 2 years now.

What do you charge for your services?

I have listed my prices and fees in the sidebar to the left. If you have any questions, please let me know.

Where do you do your quilting?

I currently work out of a local boutique and floral. I have my own little area at the back of the shop. Our shop has several little shop puppies, but they are not allowed in or near my quilting area. Our shop hours are:

M-F 10 AM - 5 PM Mountain time
Sat 10 AM- 2 PM Mountain time

I don't always work out of the shop. Sometimes I work out of my home, finishing quilts to sell in my Esty shop, or seaming quilt backings or binding quilts for clients. My home is pet and smoke free.

Do you have samples of your work?

Samples are coming soon! Please check back later for updates!

If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact me. Thanks for stopping by!
