I am new to long arm sewing, I have done one quilt with the help of a friend. I heard there were blogs for longarmers, do any of you know of any sites that I might join or visit. I have had back surgery, any suggestions of what I might be careful of while quilting?
I'm looking at a sewing machine on CL and would like to get some opinions on this model and reputation: Voguestitch 110 >> asking price is $40, mentions that it's been cleaned, serviced and runs nice. Thanks ever so much.

I've made a few breast cancer items and I'm curious to know how others advertise their quilts online? I've quilted for over 20 years now while working at McDonald's and I'm to a point where I'd like to open my own LLC. and ENJOY what I do everyday by offering custom quilts, lessons, etc.

So lovely and sure to keep winter at bay in my head anyway.

Okay, So I'm very young and don't know very many people who do any kind of crafts especially quilt. My great grandmother did with a machine and my grandmother has tried to finish one her mother started before she died but she doesn't really have the time with so many really young grandkids around.

I have watched tons of you tube videos and about.com videos but not many people
