At the fabric store I bought a booklet on new quilters and Machine Quilting. This was not for owners of long arms, but for newbies to with normal sewing machine. It explained many things that we take for granted that "we" know. The magizine size booklet helped so much!!
Hints and Help like "In the Ditch" quilting.. I did not know the quilting should be on side opposite where 1/4 seem is pressed.. as they say in book... on the low side..
all you newbies look for a book on basics.
