    Don't you just love a smart mouth?

    I went to a quilt show today. There was a vendor there helping his wife. While making my purchases, he told me his wife was a long armed quilter that quilted for people. I told him I was trying to quilt my own. He said that was fine on small items like wall hangings and table toppers but that if I did not have a longarm machine I could not quilt a quilt on a DSM(guess I didn't get the memo). I said, well actually I have quilted half of a 96x96 quilt. He said, well you must have had lots of practice and be really good. I said, well actually I have just started and haven't had a lot of practice. Oh well.

    Well, then, if his logic follows, then you must be a natural born quilter. Do you suppose he was quilt police by marriage?

    Look at the opposite side, perhaps his wife told him that "story" so that she could get a Long Arm machine and you went and let the cat outta the bag lol

    What a jerk. If he is trying to drum up business for his wife, he needs selling lessons. He will turn off more people than he will get to let her quilt for them.
    I have quilted over 80 quilts on DSMs and I will keep at it.

    Hmmm, good thing I didn't know that when I was quilting four king-size quilts on my 1957 Singer 401A and QAYG'ing another king-size quilt on my 1940 Singer Featherweight, while we were in our 25 foot RV trailer with only the tiny dinette table to use for sewing...

    Gee whiz, I didn't realize I COULDN'T do that!
    Too bad I didn't have that guy advising me differently, huh?

    Some people will tell you any sort of yarn in order to sell their product.

    It is the long arms. She probably has long fingers and legs too.
