A middle aged quilter - been sewing since I was 10 - but am just now learning how to quilt properly. My mom taught me years ago - but am finding out she did a lot of thing incorrectly and the hard way. So I am constantly learning new things and the correct way to do things. I love making things for my grandchildren - but my job has me traveling about 8 mo. out of the year - so when I am home - I really hiberate in my sewing room and just enjoy myself.
Hobbies and Interests

My pets are awesome!
Dog that I rescued name Otis. His name fits him perfectly.

Hi Eva.... Just to you know were in the same time zone.Did you get the plate that you need to quilt.This sits on top of the other ,so the feed dogs don't grap your quilt when quilting.How is your tension coming,don't give up you will get there.Quilting threads l had to try a few before l fond the one that worked for me. The connecting threads quilting thread works good and is not a bad price. This is more reasonable than some when staring out. Your bobbin thread tension should be loose ,when you hold this in your hand it should drop easy but not to loose. Remember just because the machine runs fast you don't have to keep up with that speed.Just relaxe when using your frame and have fun .......Bev
