  • 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...

  • Looking for Long Arm Advice - Need your experience

    For those of you with a Long Arm machine..... would you buy the same machine you have now again? Last year I was looking at the HQ Avante with the Pro Stitcher but now more manufactures are coming out with computerized quilting. And I'm lost on which machine to really look at for purchasing. Here's...

  • Re: What Are You Up to Today? #6

    I am working on finishing up a Christmas gift that has me stumped. I made a table runner for my step-mom in a basic zig zag quilted pattern out of muted green and brown and a cream (they have a very rustic home). I don't have a lot of the fabric left and since I dug it out from my stash it's...

  • Quilter's muscles, or lack thereof!!

    Good grief! I never knew machine quilting needed muscles!! Picture the scene: I spent half an hour setting up my kitchen: cleared the dinner table, moved the sewing machine, set the ironing board behind me, threaded up 4 spools, put in a new needle, positioned the quilt, hey presto, I was all set up...

  • Hello & question about machine arm length

    Hi! I'm Martha (aka NanaBB) and am in the Dayton Ohio area. I love to quilt and have been quilting since I was a teen in the 1970's (okay, do the math ;-) My earliest quilts were all hand pieced and hand quilted, but I now quilt exclusively by machine. My current machine is a Viking but I am...

  • Quilt for a foster child

    Thanks, Carolyn, for your blocks. Take a look at the quilt we just sent off to Samantha! She's a foster teen in Rhode Island who just lost her mother. Our message? You are not alone. We'll be starting a new project shortly for another foster child. Watch for my post.

  • Buying a longarm (HandiQuilter HQ Pro Stitcher)

    Yesterday was the 3rd time I went to look at the Handi Quilter setup (HQ18 Avante and 10ft frame). 16K ! (yikes - that is a car payment). But I'm getting more and more serious about the purchase. Anyone familiar with a recent long arm purchase or this machine? I'm looking into the computer generated...
