I am a quilter with an ambition to become a longarm quilter and am looking to buy my first longarm. Information and backup service on longarms in New Zealand is limited - most of my research has been via the internet. Your site struck me as being very friendly and helpful with people sharing their knowledge. I am looking forward to joining the discussions.
Kind regards - Lorraine
I am sure you are bursting at the seams waiting for your Innova. I had to wait a month as when I ordered the computers were back ordered. I wore myself out the day it arrived because I was so excited. I think the 18" will be just fine. I got the bigger one because I never thought I could free motion so I figured I would have to roll less with autopilot. I am now learning to free motion which I LOVE and when I free motion I don't use all the space as it hurts my back to lean over that far. I am certain you will love it. If you have any questions feel free to send me a message I will try to help as much as I can. I am excited for you! Blessings!
I just joined this site and the longarm group and saw that you are getting an INNOVA. Congratulations! I am a new Innova owner as well. I just got my "Trixie" November 21st. You will have a blast! I have the 26" 12ft frame with Autopilot! There is a couple Innova groups on Yahoo that have saved my sanity a few times. If you want more information I would be happy to pass that along to you. Congratulations again! :)
Hello Lorraine, welcome to this great site and a super group of helpful women. Well I was in Newcastle shopping after a few hours in the metro centre, you will know where I mean. Yes everywhere is very christmassy, but no snow YET..... nice to meat you, nz sounds lovely too bye for now have a great Christmas
Just wanted to pop in to say “hello” and introduce myself. I’m Linda Hubalek, fellow quilter and author from Kansas. Books about pioneer women are my specialty, with a cooking or a quilting theme mixed into each historical fiction series.
My Trail of Thread historical fiction book series, written in the form of letters sent back home, describes my ancestors’ wagon trail journey and homesteading in Kansas. Each book mentions twelve old-time quilt patterns, and I put drawings of them in the back of the books.
And my new books in the Kansas Quilterseries will be out by early 2014. It’s about my great grandmother Kizzie Pieratt and the many quilts she made.
So if you like to read—besides quilting—please enjoy my blog and book excerpts on my website. Besides printed as paperbacks, my ten books are also available for your Kindle or Nook.
I have about a dozen quilts made by my great grandmother, (that we used all the time when I was a kid) so I’m into antique quilts and patterns. What kind of quilts and patterns do you like to work with?
