Yes, they're here, and I even have the frame put together and the system set up, I think! That was a JOB! I would love your suggestions on how to begin the learning process. I got a book I ordered today. (the Ultimate Guide to LAQ...Linda Taylor) I am digging into it tonight. I am wondering if I should just start with some free motion patterns.... on a practice sandwich, of course! OR is there some other technique that I should try first? I do have the stitch regulator on the machine. I know that I will have to do LOTS of practice, and I would appreciate any tips for getting started. I appreciate those of you who have been so helpful so far. I did join the message board for Bailey LA'ers and I have also posted some questions there. Thanks!!!
