I live in Cape Breton,Canada.

    I too love to hand quilt, have you ever seen the hand quliting templates? They are easy to use, just buy a chalk pad and you lay the template over the area you want to quilt and wipe the chalk pad over it. The lines wipe off with a cold damp cloth or will eventaully dissappear. This method is also good because you dont' have to mark the entire quilt at one time, you can just mark as you go. Hope this helps

    Hi, I like to hand quilt also. Looking to upgrade my lap hoop...very old and flimsy. Have checked out some new ones on the Grace hoops and Barnett's lap hoops websites...having a hard time deciding but liking the newer square hoops. Any feedback would be appreciated! Thanks :-)
