What types of payment do you accept?

Payment must be made IN FULL for prior to commencement of your quilt.

What kind of clothing works best in a memory quilt?

Almost anything can be incorporated into your memory quilt... pajamas, shirts, dresses, overalls, tanks and tees, hoodies, costumes, bibs, etc.  If you have anything that you are concerned with please include and we will incorporate as best we can - there's usually a way - and if we can't we will return it to you.  Either way we will let you know.

Memory quilts are also for more than just baby/ children's clothes - adult clothing can be included as well or can be solely used on our lap blankets.  I've used my dad's favorite ties, t-shirts and jeans. 

Most any fabric is suitable except swimsuits/ rashies, lycra based materials, underwear or polyesters.  If you provide us with an item that is unsuitable we will always return it to you.

Please ensure all clothing provided is washed and free of pet hair, cigarette smoke, etc.

How do I supply my clothing?

Upon completing our Order Form we will contact you to clarify all the specifics, provide you with an invoice and instructions on where to send your clothes.  For orders in the Perth Metro area arrangement can be made for drop off/ pick up of items.

Extra items not used and remaining pieces will be returned with delivery of the quilt.  Scraps will be discarded unless specifically requested to be kept.
