I just wanted to introduce myself a little better and to say thanks to everybody for making me feel welcome. I have quilted for about 8 years and have made about 20 quilts and many table runners, pillows and other small items. I am self taught so there are many things i still don't understand or able to do. The biggest quilt i have made is a full size and i was able to quilt it on my kenmore sewing machine. But thanks to my wonderful husband, my quilting machine will be shipped this week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm very excited and scared about it. Also, I'm still getting used to this web site and have some trouble navigating around it, so that is also on my quilting to do list. And i'm still trying to figure out how to upload my pictures. Thanks again everyone-------------------------squirty, aka, Anita
Anita, congratulations on a new machine. Great way to start the new year. Now you have to learn to take pics and post them so we can ooh and ahhh over them. We love pics. Ask questions on how to post pics and someone can jump in and help you. Looking forward to seeing your projects!
Welcome Anita. On your home page you will see the the left, welcome to QCA with a list of things to click on for information about the site, etc. There is a section on how to post pics in the gallery, which is a bit different than posting a picture here.
Here: when you start a message, you will see in the box, a little green film strip. click on that. load the picture, (I browse and take from my desktop) then click insert. wait what seems a long time. your picture will show up. then scroll down and click on post. It takes a while.
congratulations on the machine. I started with a kenmore and it served me well. You will be amazed at all the things the newer machines can do.
Wow what a great gift. Have fun learning all that your new machine will do. It took me awhile to work around this site and know I am on more often and have joined several groups. To post a picture if you look at the tool bar you count from the first tab (B) and go over to the tenth tab (it looks like a rectangle with a small circle). when you press that one you can go and choice a file. Once you choice your pic just press insert and you are done. I hope this helps you.
Hi and welcome Anita, glad you have joined us, enjoy!
Welcome Anita and congrats on the new machine.
