    Hi there
    Newbie from Cornwall again. Can someone provide us newbies with a glossary of terms.
    e.g. FMQ and SITD.
    What do these mean? It's just that american termanology is so different from ours. That is why I feel I need quite possibly a UK Mom.
    Can anyone help pleeeas.

    This should help with the more common ones

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-25607-1.htm

    Lots of people have asked this question so if you go to "search" at the top of the page and type in "abbreviations" you will see lots of other answers too.

    I hope this helps

    I must say I don't feel so thick now and it makes it easier if you know that other people have problems too. You tend to feel you are the only one when you first start. lol

    Hi there from Ohio. Do a search above for acronyms and you will get lots of information.

    FMQ-Free motion quilting
    SITD-Stitch in the ditch

    Its just short talk so we don't have to spell it out. Believe me you will love it and you are not the only one who doesn't know these abbreviations. Sometimes I sit here and try to figure them out also. When you are reading their story sometimes you can figure it out.
