    I am a newbie up for adoption and I am in the beginning stages of putting a quilt club together at my workplace for "seniors". Can you share with me all of the supplies I need to get? I am sure some of my seniors have quilted in the past, but I do not want to seem "stupid" when gathering up supplies to get us started. "Please Help". Our quilts will be for charity, as we are a non-profit.

    I would wait until Hancock's or JoAnn's has a sale on quilting notions.
    If funds are not limited I would buy one of everything. Ha!
    No really
    You should start off with
    A good rotary cutter, mat and ruler. You will need pins, needles, marking pencils, seam rippers, "yes more than one", and scissors.

    If quilting yourself you will need batting and backing fabric.

    Let's not forget fabric, fabric, fabric.

    Of course you will need a sewing machine and that will mean more supplies. Needles, thread, bobbins, oil, 1/4" foot and again look around, the items are endless!!!!

    Look around as there are lots of other items to be had.

    I still need some help and I'd love to have a quilting sister in Australia to help keep me on task! I've done some paper piecing with Carol Doak, my QID isn't too bad and I'm taking a FM class in August. I think I'm getting better at cutting my blocks out straight. Mostly I need encouragement. Maybe a question answered here and there. I have skype on my computer and email so both are available. would you like to be my sis? Mrs. B, we could probably help each other out with the great tutorials on here.

    I've been quilting only since last August (09), but sort of skipped the beginner quilt stage (from what others tell me), but feel I have so much to learn, while at the same time I've been 'teaching' others that are truly brand new to quilting and have never done it, or are stuck.

    What I have learned or been taught is via a co-worker and here on the board.

    Or am I one that is 'stuck in the middle"?
    I will join you is this spot, I started just 2 years ago, borders and mitering get me every time. I an afraid to FM Have no clue on paper piecing, don't wander off the beginner blocks.
    OK - I am so new at quilting that I don't even know what FM means. So I can't tell you if I know how to do it or not!! Silly me!

    I learned it from here! It means "Free Motion" as in quilting. I've tried it on my own but I didn't even know what I was supposed to be doing.

    OH! I do know what that is but I have not tried it yet. The dog feet on my old sewing machine can't be dropped so I have only done straight line quilting with very thin batting.

    Now that I have a real quilting machine (Viking), that is on my list of things to learn SOON!

    You can look at great tutorials via the internet by searching free motion quilting. A lot of professionals have videos on utube that are free. Try it out.
