    I have to say, I don't like Aunt Becky much at all. I can't get it to pick up the backing fabric.

    However, I did find a store that sells hand-quilting supplies!

    More good news: I showed a picture of a quilt I'm working on to the sewing machine place and he asked me if I'd be interested in holding a hand-quilting class!

    Good for you! I wish I had the chance to show people how to hand quilt. I also received the Aunt Becky in the mail last week. I tried wearing it and it keeps falling off. I haven't tried it for quilting yet, we will see how that works...good thing it was not expensive. :|

    I didn't put it on like a thimble. I held it between my finger and thumb, but found that it worked better kind of on the side of my finger... kind of like this picture: http://www.learnguitarblog.com/image...tar-pick-2.jpg

    Thanks for showing how to use it. I will give it a try.

    I don't know what brought me back to this thread, but ironically, I don't do much hand-quilting these days (too hot!) but I still don't patronize those LQS, and I'm turning away from going to Joanns too. It left a sour taste in my mouth that's still here 6 months later!
