  1. When do we get to see a picture of your new baby?
  2. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the recommendation on the Sally Terry book! LOVE her feather method and it is so much easier than the other two I have been practicing. Will continue to practice all three methods, but the ST way is FABULOUS!!!!
  3. Mary, I had wondered how those machines performed. There are so many out there on the market now!
  4. Mary, What kind of machine did you have before you got your APQS? Karen
  5. I sure hope I will get feathers down My Sally Terry book will be here Saturday! Thank you so much for the encouragement!
  6. Could you use them for practice quilting pieces?
  7. That is wonderful! But you deserve a medal for all this waiting.
  8. Congrats! I can't wait to see what you will quilt with her!
  9. I can see that I will use channel locks to baste every quilt so that makes them worthwhile to me.
  10. I just wanted to post praising Sheridan Kay Quilting. She is a very customer-oriented lady and does something that no other LA vender has offered to me. She allowed me to meander a small quilt to see how I liked the machines and the process of LA quilting. She didn't charge me for this. However, after the quilt was completed, I signed up for a certification class. She will be seeing more of me. Not everyone has as long as wait as I will for their longarm so may just do quick doodling on a sample at various shops. Doing a small quilt is actually better BECAUSE you see right away how certain repetitive processes work. By actually quilting a small quilt, I now KNOW that I want electronic channel locks. This is knowledge I would not have gained from just doodling. She also walked me through the maintenance process prior to quilting, which is pretty pain free. If anyone near Hendersonville, NC plans on buying a longarm, I highly recommend checking out Sheridan's shop. I also got the opportunity to meet the fabulous Sharon Denning! We had lunch and chatted a bit. She is lots of fun and full of great information.
  11. What a great idea! Sometimes folks are on a budget but need a little bit more. You came up with a wonderful solution. And the quilt looks great!!!
  12. That looks awesome!
  13. Books and videos by Mynra F. added to the list!
