In-Store Rental Program

How it Works

  1. Cost: $75 per day free motion, groovy boards, pantographs / $25 non refundable deposit; $100 per day for Pro-Stitcher /$25 non refundable deposit. Deposit is transferable if the request comes 7 or more days from the original reservation.
  2. Time: 9:30 am to 4:30 pm—5:00 pm. If you need to go past 5—overtime fee is $20 per 30 minutes and your Honey Bee Store Associate must agree that they can stay.
  3. You will need to purchase Handi Quilter bobbins and needles.
  4. We have many patterns for the Pro Stitcher. If you choose to bring one of your own patterns, it needs to be an .HQF file and Honey Bee will need to download it from the internet to ensure that it is virus free. 
  5. You can use the thread in the cabinet, but if you choose something from the floor (Gutermann or Aurifil) it will be an additional charge. You are welcome to bring your own thread as well.
  6. Please bring backing that measures 4" larger than your quilt on all sides.
  7. Your batting should also be larger than your quilt. Honey Bee has the following kinds of 96" wide batting: natural cotton, white cotton, 80/20, bambo, bambo cotton blend, black 80/20 and wool. We also have warm and natural in the bag.
  8. The number of quilts that you can expect to complete will vary on the size of the quilt and the complexity of the pattern. We like to load the largest quilt first and see how it goes. Bring several quilts—its better to make good use of your time than to leave time on the table.
  9. You are welcome to bring lunch and drinks. There is a refrigerator that you can use. Water is available in the refrigerator.
  10. We are happy to load your quilt the night before so you can hit the ground running for an additional fee of $10.
