Quilt With Us

I have always hand quilted until the past 6 months as it was to painful for my wrist. I had to give up mu beloved hand quilting. Someone on this site worte a while back about learning to hand quilt from the ThimbleLady. I decided it was worth the money to try it. I hand quilted for 9 hours yesterday and another 4 hours this morning. Not only are my sitches 10 to 12 per inch, the best news of all my wrist does not hurt at all. I was self taught and was doing it wrong all along. Praise the Lord. I can now get my two Queen wholecoth quilts done by hand. ThimbleLady also teaches applique. My appliquing has also improved one hundred percent. Anyone not using their middle finger to hand quilt and have problems check her web site or youtube demo. Have a great day as I must run off for more HAND QUILTING. LOL's Lori

I have the book & DVD's for both hand quilting and applique, one of her sterling silver thimbles, some of each of her three sizes of needles, and today received my latest order from her....two sizes of stitch regulators with clips. I tried the quilting method when I first got the books & DVD's a year or two ago because I have severe carpal tunnel in my right hand. I absolutely love the thimble to pieces, but didn't quite catch on to the method of hand quilting. I'm going to have to go through everything and try again. She's a really nice person and I love the items that I've gotten from her. It's nice to hear of someone else who likes her products too.

A few days ago my Aunt Becky arrived, and I want to try that as well. Her method looked pretty interesting too.

Hmmm good to know. I'll have to investigate the ThimbleLady. Thanks!

I tried her too and It just did not work out for me. Glad it did for you. It cramped my finger trying to hold the needle with two fingers and my thumb. I have Aunt Beckys and thimbes to sell if anyone is interested. LOL's Lori

I had the same problem, and I used Jean Browns method. A lot cheaper of an investment and now I could quilt all day long since she uses the Aunt becky and a needlecraft guild thimble and a lap hoop that has a base..

I already had a frame that just sits in your lap and you do not need to hold. I ordered the essential package for quilting. If you do not have the frame you will need to order one. You will love it. I ordered the applique also. I love them both. She ships very fast. I had mine in about a week. I can not say enough about her way of hand quilting. I have been so depressed over having to give it up. I like machine quilting but have missed my time in the living room watching TV with DH and doing my hand quilting. I can not say enough about her method. Good luck Lori

I saw the ad in a magazine and looked at her website. Couldn't figure out though what needs to be ordered...what did you order?
