I sent out 2 quilt tops to be quilted from a seller on ebay. Really cheap to boot. She had excellent feedback so figured I'd give it a chance.
Believe it or not in less than 8 days both where returned to me and beautifully done.
When my hubby seen them he said hey didn't you make them. Told him yes but sent them to someone else to quilt for me.
He couldn't understand why told him #1 I can't quilt worth S$%^. and besides that I don't have a Longarm machine to quilt with.
He asked what did you pay told him total for Both tops where quilted for $88 which even included postage. I used the money I made on my garage sale to send them.
well have probably have another 6 or so tops that still need quilted LOL!! He said hell, save the money.(didn't tell him it would take me a very long time to save enough to have the othrs all quilted) I'll get you the machine you need for your birthday next month.
Since I don't know what kind of machine it is You can take the credit card and pick one out yourself. The kids asked what you wanted so I'll just have them chip in for it and it will be from everyone.
oH man if I was only a horrible greedy woman I would have grabbed that card and did a road trip to find one LOL!!! instead I just started laughing.
He didn't think it was too fuuny till I told him what a Long arm costs.and that I'd need a room added on for it to fit in. I wish I would of had my camera to share a picture of the face on the man. Princeless!!! LOL!!
needless to say I won't be getting one for my birthday. He looked at me and said MAybe we can get togther and pay to have a couple more of your quilt tops quilted. turned around and walked away.
Gotta love him
