If I stitch in the ditch it around all the blocks, can I hand tie the center of the blocks instead of quilting them? The blocks are 12 inches and the battingirls says to quilt every 6...

  • New Quilter here

    Hi all, I'm new and just wanted to say hi. My mother did a lot of quilting and had a Gammill (basic model w/stitch regulator) long arm. She died early in November quite unexpectedly and left the Gammill to me. Needless to say, I have some decisions to make! I enjoy top quilting, but never really...

  • Re: How can I figure out what to charge someone for hand quilting?

    I have heard of different ways to charge for hand quilting. Some charge by the quilt size, say 2-4 cents per inch. Others may charge by the number of yards of thread. Spools list the yards on the package, so the number of spools used can be calculated with the price per yard. The average price I've...

  • Re: Looking for Long Arm Advice - Need your experience

    Two years ago, I bought my HQ18 Avante. Yes, I would buy it again! I have it set up at 12 ft, it takes up most of my basement. I do not have the ProStitcher. It's an extremely easy, forgiving machine to learn on. Things I would want to know: 1) At the time I bought my machine, the Handihandles would...
