I have returned to sewing after a very loooong absence. I don't know about you, but when I turned 50, I felt a tremendous need to create! A flight attendant friend of mine introduced me to the world of quilting. Thank you Betty!!! It has been such fun sitting down in front of my machine and happily stitching away. Betty called it "therapy" and it is! I am shopping for a new machine and want to spend around $1000., any suggestions? I look forward to getting to know you! Happy Stitching!
