Hi my name is Darlene and I live in the beautiful hills of WV. I am new to quilting in pretty much everyway. I have pieced a couple quilts and hand quilted a couple but want to get into longarm quilting and some motion quilting. My husband recently purchased a new Brother sewing machine and a Husqvarna longarm quilting machine for me and I love both of them. I am practicing stippling on the longarm now and found that it likes Warm and Natural 100% cotton the best. The polyester batting made the stitches awful no matter how much I adjusted the tension.

Anyway, I am happy to be on here and love all the helpful comments I've read on some of the forums.

Darlene, welcome. You will love it here. How exciting to have a long arm. I would love to have one but don't have the room. Hope to see some pictures of your quilts.

Darlene, welcome to the group.  Do you actually have a long arm on frame?  I finally talked my husband into letting me buy a mid arm and a frame about 1-1/2 years ago...boy would I love to have a real computerized long arm...but alas, not enough money or space for one.

Hi Darlene and welcome to the best group of gals ever.  You are a lucky lady to have a hubby to buy you both machines, he's a keeper!
