Hi, My name is Lee-Ann and have been putting together quilt tops for many years and just purchasing my first long arm. Actually just got back from my first class at the sewing center and so excited to receive my machine next week. I am looking forward to this new side of quilting as I have 9 quilt tops, backs and batting in my basement for a couple of years to be quilted. I already told friends and family that they may need to check that I come out of the basement every now and then. As with every new adventure, I look forward to tips and tricks. Hope you all have a great Valentines Day.
Hi Lee-Ann! Welcome! This club is a great place! Fantastic people and helpful too! When you do get some quilts done, be sure to post pics we love to see them! Congrats on your new long arm!
Hi Lee-Ann, welcome to QCA
Welcome, Lee-Ann! There is a long-armers discussion thread here that you may enjoy reading.
Here is the link to the start of that thread... Longarmers share#1
You can read this thread, but you won't be able to reply since it is now locked. On the last page, there should be a link to the new Longarmers share#2 which is still active.
Good luck with your new baby!

Welcome Lee-Ann. Congratulations on the new machine.
Welcome Lee Ann. Sounds like you will be busy. We've watched a few of the members here get long arms and learn to quilt with them. It's a lot of fun seeing their transitions from beginners to professional level. Have fun!
Welcome to QCA Lee-Ann!
I'm a material girl....Want to see my fabric collection?
Greetings All :) My name is Stephanie. I have been sewing for about 43 years and quilting for about 25, but only recently have devoted more time to my quilt designing and creating. I think I enjoy the design process the best, but am now quilting for others as a business. I have an ancient long-arm machine (over 40 years old) that I purchased from a friend... it is sort of a prototype for the really slick looking machines I see out there today, but it works :)
Welcome to QCA Spirit!!
