I'm new to quilting and very excited to learn a new "skill"/craft/art form. My real interest is automated equipment for Long Arm (or for that matter) just about any machine type(s) related to quilting. After looking high and low for a software package to design and output digitized patterns to computerized (2 axis CNC) quilting equipment I settled on Art & Stitch. A perfect match for designing and out putting high quality machine control files. So I'll be reading and learning about all the nuance of quilting while designing and running our Long Arm quilter. Ask any questions you like about computer control and I'll probably ask some quilting related questions!!!
