What Are Combines?

What we lovingly call 'combines' or 'additional seams' are just that. They are any action taken to a shirt other than the straight cutting of the standard sized square.

Some examples of what is considered extra and does cost extra.

    • Combining (simple) - 2 shirts (or a front and back) into one block.
    • Combining* (more than one seam)
    • Applique - front logo to the back side of a shirt.
    • Enlarging a tank top to be a square (fill in the arms and neck)
    • Polo Shirt - Trim bulk and sew the tab closed
    • Baseball Jerseys - Usually, bulk removed from front placket, and opening sewn shut. We do leave the buttons.
    • Pockets - Pockets need to be sewn 'shut' so that the hopping foot of the quilting does not 'catch' on opening.
    • Creating a new block from 2 or more logos/pockets or other parts.

    *Complex piecing. When more than one seam is involved, or creating a block out of odd shaped items, it requires more time to piece the block.

    Minimum of $10 additional charge each on these. These can include but are not limited to:

      • cheerleading V-front tops (these are usually pretty labor intensive to work with and usually run around $25 additional charge.)
      • enlarging a tanktop into a larger block
      • shorts
      • hats
      • sleeves
