    CindyA - a DSM is a domestic sewing machine (a regular one!).

    Oops, no one told me about this and here I've been quilting all my quilts on a Bernina 440. And believe it or not they are quite nice to look at. If I'd thought to tell my DH this maybe I'd own a LA too.

    Well that explains it. Now I know why I have so much trouble. Here I had been trying to do something that just can;t be done. Well at least I know now so I can quit. And I was just thinking I might get good at quilting on my DSM. :-(

    I think you give some men ( and women as the case may be) a little information, and they think that's the only way. I'll be willing to bet, like everyone said, that's what his wife told him to justify her long arm machine. Luckily, most of us don't have to depend on those kinds of people for our information and can do what we know works for us !

    I use a treadle for quilting when the electric machine is misbehaving, wanted to use my Viking Sapphire 875 and it wasn't being a good girl. She went into the closet for a long time out. The treadle did what I wanted and no attitude. People tell me all the time that I can't possibly quilt on a treadle.

    Oh no! I didn't realize that we couldn't do that! Wonder how he thinks all the people who only have DSMs and no long-arms quilt??? What a stupid man!

    Maybe he's making the payments on it! He probably won't go to any more shows with her.

    That's sweet!! A man showing support for his wife! Sounds like he is proud of her work. It doesn't sound like he was trying to be a smart mouth, just trying to help in a quilting world.

    I was at a show about 3 years ago and heard some woman telling three others that "you cannot hand quilt through Warm and Natural" batting. I know this is a lie as I hand quilt about 80 percent of my quilts and ONLY use W&N. She must have had her own agenda.

    Sorry if I was misunderstood. I was talking about myself being a smart mouth by telling him that I was quilting on a DSM and had not practiced much. I was trying to help by encouraging people that, like me, can not afford a longarm machine.

    He just doesn't know any better. Just what he has been told would be my guess. Glad I wasn't there to burst his bubble!

    I went to the Mt Dora show and I do think I might have spoke to the same husband...did not particularly care for him.
