I am a long-term sewer/ designer with a passion for fabrics, machines and sewing gadgets of all kinds. I am relatively new to quilting but fascinated by it and anxious to learn from other quilters. I live in Ontario right on the shores of Lake Huron and my post and beam home will soon host a Bed & Breakfast with a large studio for quilters. What better way to share my hobby, meet other sewers and keep my cats amused? I am a great fan of this CT website.

What type of quilt frame do you have.I have a Grace Pro Wooding frame. My frame is very sturdy and is heavy ,set up to do a king size quilt.This takes up alot of space in my sewingroom.My room is only 12x14,but l have everything l need in there.I can put my cutting table top on the quilt frame (w/no legs) and l put coffee cans under the table top to raise it up for a better height for me to work on.
My daughter said it was 80 in AZ today,l told her not to be so mean to me HA HA HA. She loves to tell the weather each day.
I've been working on some quilts for our show in April,most of them l have finished.With me being off work right now has made a big difference. Haveing trouble with getting photos on site.Still working on this.

Have you gone into the site : MyQBOT.com .If you go there you can check out the qbot in the video to see how it works. They are very interesting.This is something that l want to get ,maybe this summerwill be the time for that.Plus l'm looking at a longarm machine Pfaff18.8.
I'm from Kitchener ontario.Living here in Vermont for 19yrsWhere is Pike Bay,l lived in Huntsville at one time, not far from Perry Sound.
I also have a large room to quilt in on the lower level. I'm not fortunate enough to have a walkout, but it's a nice room. My husband redid it and surprised me a couple of years ago with some toys. He added a Husquavarna Mega Quilter with the frame. It sounds like the same one you have. He also put in a cutting table from Ikea that has hydraulics. I can easily adjust the height for standing or cutting which is great. I've got lots of cupboards for my fabric and supplies, so I can keep some sort of order. Now I have toys for our 4 1/2 year old grandson who likes to play while I sew. It's great to hear from you. Please stay in touch. Sandra
