  1. I used to pay for a website which was very expensive (websites for quilters) but now I would like to do a free or reasonable site for my business. Any suggestions?
  2. Information

    Patty, I don't know anything about the certification course for LongArm quilters. I saw a few things on facebook about it, but honestly it was the first time I've heard about it. I've heard about the certification to be a teacher but that's all. I'm sure the course would teach you a lot and being able to say your quilting skills have been certified by Fons and Porter in conjunction with APQS would be a benefit for any LongArm business. If you have questions contact Myrna Ficken, I believe she's heading up the course with Dawn. You can contact Myrna via message here on the forum or Facebook. Sorry, I'm not much help but I hate to see no replies to your questions.
  3. I have a Bernina 440 for classes. Not the lightest machine but a workhorse. I have Tutto bags for all my machines. Very easy to roll and well worth the price. I hate the Bernina roll bags, and very expensive.
  4. Beautiful quilts. Love both but maybe the small one a little bit more.
  5. Cost and capabilities. I have both programs, I find the Pre-Design Studio simple to use. I think it would be plenty of program for doing your own quilting designs. I bought Art and Stitch because I also do embroidery digitizing. Just my opinion.
  6. Just google "Cross Quilt" or Log Cabin Cross Quilt, there's lots of versions of the quilt. I loved it too and wanted the pattern. Dave posted one of the links to the pattern above. It's just beautiful and simple (perfect).
  7. Beautiful, wouldn't expect less from you. Your customers are very lucky.
  8. Love it, the cross design is something new.
  9. Quilt of Valor

    Fons and Porter have lots of "Quilts of Valor" info on their website.
  10. Tip of the Day

    I agree, sure does cut into the profits.
  11. Beautiful. I agree doesn't look minimal to me.
  12. Beautiful, I love Sue and Sam. Someday I will make a quilt with Sue or Sam maybe both.
  13. Amazing!!!! I can imagine how excited the owner was to receive the quilt. Was it a tablecloth prior to quilting? I've seen vintage tablecloths made into quilts and everyone is beautiful.
