Hi, I just joined and am excited about the site. I am a long time quilter but not enough time to quilt as I would like. Unfortunately I have to work to support my habit. I am currently working on a…Continue
I have a Baby Lock Quilter's Choice Professional and a Grace Frame. I never use the frame either and I just HAD to have it. I wish I had never bought it. I practiced a lot and got pretty good with the quilting; it's the loading I have a hard time with. I'd rather sit to quilt anyway. Now I wish I had the sit-down HQ16.
I sell many of my quilts to support my quilting hobby. I've had numerous hobbies over the years, but quilting is the most expensive of all! I have a huge stash and still crave new fabric! I guess that's pretty common. I'm in a really small town, so I do the majority of my fabric shopping on-line. My current favorite is Fabric Shack. They have great prices and great sales too.
I'm not familiar with the machines you have...is one of them specifically for embroidery? I don't want an embroidery machine...I figured I'd end up going crazy buying thread! I'd rather have that HQ16!
I promised myself that I'd never have UFO's...that I'd finish everything I started. Well, that lasted about a year. Now I have a few tops that need quilting, but I've lost to mood to work on those quilts. I keep thinking that someday I'll do them. One of them I made a long time ago and it's a total beginner pattern, so I thought about trying to quilt it on my frame. That way I won't be too upset if I mess it up!
Hi Dee! I've been here for several weeks now and I'm really enjoying it. This is my first "social networking" site and it's a lot of fun. I don't do facebook or blog or anything else, so this is great for me.
I've been quilting for almost 6 years and have made lots of quilts. I retired when I was 45 (I'm almost 50 now), and that's when I picked up quilting. I never knew how to sew before that.
Do you plan on joining any groups? They still seem kind of quiet considering there are over 2000 members here! But I guess this is a new site and it takes time to really get the ball rolling. I joined traditional quilts, scrappy quilts, piecing, machine quilting and a few others. I also started a group for newbies.
