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

    Thanks for the info. I really like what you said about not going overboard with accessories at first, an that was a good tip about the Handihandles. Lots to consider, and I have just begun my research, but I know someone with a HQ 16 so am leaning that way.

  • Re: Design wall using flannel

    Hi, This is my flannel board. I wrapped an old flannel sheet around a 1 inch thick sheet of styrofoam insulation purchased from my local building supply store, fastened with pins stuck into the back.I had to cut a 2 foot section off the end to fit it into my car, so the board is 4 x 6, which is large enough for most of my projects.

I take classes at my local quilt shop, the Taylor Sewing Center
