I think we all have favorites that somehow answered all

our questions when we were starting out. I sound like an

old pro, don't I. :D :D Old - yes. But pro, no. I just started

last fall.

My favorite is "The Ultimate Guide to Longarm Machine

Quilting by Linda Taylor. It covers How to Use Any Longarm

Machine, Techniques, Patterns & Pantographs, Starting a

Business and Hiring a Longarm Machine Quilter. I refer back

to it often especially when I am stuck or needing inspiration.

Of course, I get those ideas here on this forum, too.

What books did the rest of you quilters use when you first

got started???

Thanks for all the reply's and the George's site is also great to refer to. DH went and bought a trailer to haul his tractor today and I told him to go ahead and get one because I was going to get me a new machine and frame. To make a long story short after being married for 27 years he knows me well enough that he figured out that I already had one on lay-a way. I am in it for the joy at the moment and in 4 1/2 yrs. I may know enough to do it for a little profit and to sell a few but for now it is for fun. I enjoy reading all the pro's and con's of everything. I would love for my daughter just to show a small amount of interest and would want to spend time with me doing something together other than me taking them out to lunch (when they are broke):P But for now it will be for me and Mother to enjoy. I buy and she enjoys. But God Love Her she is 70 and spunky as ever.
