I love this site--but I am usually a lurker, enjoying everyone's photos of quilts and great hints. Now, I have something to share and advice to seek.---I am getting an Avante Handiquilter !!!!! Yeah!! It should arrive this week and I cannot wait. Any other handiquilters have advice for a novice longarm quilter? I have wrangled my last quilt through my DSM....I found it a challenge but limiting. I am a grandmother, retired teacher and life is too short not to have my own longarm quilting machine!!
