Hello everyone. I'm a beginner quilter and I live in South Florida. I tried to learn a few years ago but I quit because I just didn't have any patience. Not only was it the first time I had tried quilting, it was the first time I had touched a sewing machine. I started again late last year and this time did my homework beforehand. I used the library, online videos, and online sites to learn everything I know so far. I'm eager to learn more and to "meet" people here as none of my family or friends have a remote interest in quilting! I recently completed my first table topper. I have the quilt that I started a few years ago and I think I may attempt to finish it within the next month. I sew on...get ready... a Singer Simple 3116. I've never touched another. I hope to be able to buy my first Janome this year. I don't have a large budget so I'm looking at about $500 I can spend.
