I admit I have been lurking on this forum for umpteen years all the time daring to hope that I might one day own an APQS beauty.  Dreams come true!  My new Millie was delivered in May and it has been a wonderful feeling knowing my girl is there waiting for me any time I want to play.  


A big thank you to all of you for all the detailed information about thread choices, thread tension, batting selection, training videos, learning the business, etc, etc.  You are all such a fabulous group of caring people who hold nothing back when someone has a problem or just wants another point of view.


For many years I quilted with a larger-throat DSM on a frame which gave me the confidence to take the bigger step and purchase the long arm.    I have learned a lot and still have much to learn, but with your help I hope to some day quilt as beautifully as the work I have seen on this site.


Thanks again, Mary

You can do beautiful work with practice.. on dry erase, or even patio door, or a window.,

then on a quilt.. everyone can do it.

Welcome Mary! As I read your message I can hear your smile. I've had my Millie since 2009 and I am still loving every moment. The "learning" never ends. There is always a thread here that will catch my eye and give me new ideas or hints along the way. So grab a cuppa, pull your chair a little closer and enjoy!
