Printer Advice

Posted on March 13, 2010 at 4:41am 7 Comments

It's time to upgrade my printer but I'm having a hard time deciding what kind I want. I'm leaning toward the Epson brand, but I'd consider another brand.

I need a printer that will print on fabric and the quality must be very good. I would be using fabric backed with freezer paper.

What type of printers do any of you use? Recommendations please!

Thanks for your help.


Memorial Day Weekend

Finally, the 3-day weekend is here! I have a wonderful, quilting filled, long weekend planned with my favorite quilting buddy, Carol. She's really my quilting mentor, with many more quilting years under her belt than I. Carol is the one I call when I need quilting advice or ideas. Her style is much more traditional than mine; I lean towards the art quilt side, but her advice on technique, and basic how-to is excellent, so she's my guru.

So...what Christmas present you received is going to be used to help you quilt this year?

Every year, around Thanksgiving, I start dog-earring the various pages of the quilting catalogs I receive. My hubby knows he can just grab one (or more) of the catalogs and order anything from the pages that are dog-earred and items that are marked. He decides how much to spend. The only thing this year, he kind of ordered late, so I haven't gotten my present yet. But, it's coming! Since I selected the items, I know it's something I'll need and use.

Happy New Year!

Hey Dawn - I'm also in San Antonio. Are you a member of any Quilt Guilds here? I just moved here last year from Lubbock. Do you know any other quilters in our area? Would you want to start a guild or maybe just get together every now and again with other local quilters?

Thank you for all the tips. I belong to a quilting group that makes quilts for charities. Since I started a year ago I have been learning to piece and sandwich. Now I am ready to help them quilt. Have you ever quilted a whole quilt on the embroidery machine in the hoop? Sashes and borders too?
