Hello, I've been reading this forum for a while and have got lots of helpful information. I am new (relatively) to quilting, I made my first quilt almost two years ago, my avatar. I enjoy quilting and wanted to quilt my own so bought a Longarm, 18", just got it set up on Labor Day. I have done very little with it so far as I will be attending the Beginner Longarm Retreat in Texas next weekend. Anyway, just want to let the forum members know they are a treasure, of information and encouragement. I wish I had listened to my Grandmother years ago, when she would show me the quilt she would be working on or have her quilter set up for winter.
