I love to quilt, don't we all? Otherwise we probably wouldn't be here. :lol: But, I've only been quilting for 18 months. Before that, I sewed clothes for my girls who are tall and lanky so most things don't fit them very well or at the very least, need some alterations. I started sewing almost 5 years ago when my oldest was a toddler and really starting to get tall. After 2 years of sewing I bought a serger to help with making the clothes but I bought it used and got what I paid for. Last fall it started to go and then it decided to stop working around Christmas. I wasn't too upset since I was bit by the quilting bug but my girls are still growing and needing longer hems so DH went out and got me this. It's a 5 thead and lets me do coverstitches to do decorative work on quilts.
