These are the available types of batting we carry in-stock at LoveBug Studios. We are proud to carry Legacy Premier Quilt Batting, as well as a select other batting we love for its quality and ease of use.
Some batting has a scrim layer, which is a lightweight, net-like material which holds the fibers together and helps support the batting so it can be stitched further apart.

These are the available types of thread we use at LoveBug Studios. We proudly use Superior Thread for our long arm quilting. If you are interested in using a Superior thread line that we do not currently carry, we are happy to order it for you. Please note that not all colors are in-stock.
If you wish to use thread from a manufacturer other than Superior, please note there will be a $35.00 charge to cover the time we will spend testing and adjusting the machine to the appropriate settings.
