    New from Iowa

    Hello all! I've been checking in here for awhile now and have so enjoyed seeing the projects you all have done and am so impressed and overwhelmed!! I haven't keyed in on any posts yet.....not a very active quilter, but plan to do more as I have the time. I just finished a baby quilt and had my old (40 year old Necchi) shell out just as I was ready to sew the borders on, so had to borrow a machine from a friend. I'm wondering (pardon me if this subject has been exhausted) if I could get some tips on shopping for a new machine. I don't need a very sophisticated machine as I mainly do piecing, but would like to upgrade from my aged, but very dependable plain Jane! Thank you!!

    Hi from Ohio! I would do a search or just ask here one the board for the machine you are interested in. I am sure someone will answer you.

    Hi fellow Iowan You will enjoy all the info on this board and glad you found us! In thinking about a new sewing machine, consider what you want to be doing in the next few years and buy a machine you can grow into. I like to both piece and free motion quilt on my domestic machine - and so for me, having a needle down button, knee lift, and a good quality stitch were important to me. Not sure where you are in Iowa, but I would recommend finding a sewing machine dealer and going from there. I have a Janome 6600 and love it - but there are many good machines out there. Again, welcome!
