I am a happy crafter. I love creating things. I spent many years making and selling jewelry but was never quite satisfied doing that. I also love to quill and make cards. But then I met a new friend who has a Bernina embroidery machine but when told how much it was I gasped and said I could never justify the cost. Well I happened to have stopped by a local quilting store and there was a lady, not an employee, who sold me on the Janome 11000. SOLD! and I love this machine. Now I want to learn to quilt but have been so busy embroidering. I need to learn to spread my time. So I am here to learn all there is to learn about quilts.
