Today I went to a Quilt class. It's called Beginner Quilter Club at A Touch of Amish store. It was good, I liked it and learned a few things. The best thing about the class was it was FREE. Yep you hear me right FREE and they offer it once a month!! I can't beat that. It's like a BOM type deal. Oh you don't have to bring anything but the BOM from the previous month! And on top of that,,,, you don't make you buy their fabric either!! I am in love with it!!
Ok,, I have

This is my first time so please bare with me. I have two questions. First one is when you tie instead of quilting what is it called. Second is when I am binding I don't want to call it a quilt because I am tying it when I'm almost done the binding starts twisting how can I prevent this from happening any suggestion will help and will be appreciated. I have not tried quilting yet. But I do make the whole blanket well lap tops tie them with batting then I donate them to the cancer hospital for children.
I was told for my first quilt to make would be the "Log Cabin". Does anyone know where I can download a free pattern that will explain how to and how much material I will need? I appreciate your help. Excited to get started. Any other advice or easy pattern suggestions appreciated. Thank you!!!
I am finally going to embark on my life long dream of opening my own shop. However, i know that times are trying. I hear it every day where i work. What i am looking for or hoping to get from here is words of wisdom from those on here who have had or still do have their own quilting shop. I have located all the LQS(2) as well as the Joann's (1) and Hancocks (2) in the area.

Hello Everyone. I have been reading the blogs for months now, this is my first post. I am thinking of buying a Janome 1600P with a Grace Pinnacle 10' Frame. Does anyone have any experience with one. What should I be looking for, what should I stay away from. Is it better to buy from a dealer? The one I am thinking about is used and a private owner is selling it.
I would like to join a quilt group that sews once a week, or if anyone wants another sewer in your group I would like to join. If you know of any please let me know.
