Hi there, I am new to the quilting board so hope I am posting in the right place. I am looking for a heavy duty (industrial? Commercial grade?) sewing machine that can handle multiple layers of leather and fabric. As a hobby, I have lately been sewing bags/purses and my Bernina just cannot handle the thickness of the leather/fabric together, let alone trying to sew leather straps.
Any recommendation for older, very affordable sewing machines great for leather and upholstery?

Well I have been so excited to make this mystery quilt the suspense to find out the next step is driving me nuts. Two weeks still to go.
I am glad that Brenda is having me help her to make a double wedding ring quilt to keep us occupied.
This is my scrap dance tango mystery quilt that I am doing with my friends Brenda and Sylvia. This is a mystery quilt from Carole from My Carolina Home.
I am having s much fun. Brenda and I are doing a lap size ad Sylvia is doing King size.
Hey everyone! So, I am new to the quilting world, but I have always loved to sew, and create. I usually use Art Gallery Fabrics. I recently found out that they have an APP! It's pretty useful. There are tons of projects you can browse through for inspiration. Have any of you used this app yet? Or have you used AGF to sew with?
Trying to learn as much as I can from other quilters.
I think I've always chosen AGF because they have so many cool prints to choose from.

Any other aps out there that are good for quilting? Thanks
I am searching for this quilt pattern. After my last visit here and I found at least 2 posts with the pattern, but in my excitement I lost the whole site. If this is the site with these patterns, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If this is discouraged by Quilting Board,maybe I could find u here. Sharon
