This Janette’s quilt from Roma – she likes close or intense quilting – here we are using her choice of the alfresco e2e machine quilting pattern. From July 1, due to increasing operating costs, we have increased the budget pattern range to $3.30 per square foot, and our basting service is now half of that price. Our standard pattern prices remain the same, and have been unchanged since 2011. We continue to try to find cost savings and efficiencies wherever we can to avoid increasing prices. However, we find the utilities such as electricity, council rates, etc do not share this outlook.
