    Hello from Alabama

    I am new to quilting and learning on my own. I have an older model Husqvarna Viking 60 20 that was used when I bought it, but it sews beautifully. I am hoping to find an instructions manual for it, along with extra bobbins. I have completely finished 1 quilt and have another top ready to be sandwiched. I retired 3 years ago and always wanted to learn to quilt. I am loving the experience and would love any tips and/or information on my machine. I have just joined the group and it is very helpful to a beginner like me. I am looking forward to learning and sharing with everyone.

    Welcome Pat, hang on to that older version Husqvarna model. I have heard less than steller reviews on some of the new ones. (Check out katiesquiltingcorner.blogspot.com for Viking review. I have heard really good things about the older models. Hope you have fun here on the QB.

    Hello to you. Where in Alabama, North, South, East or West? I live in Etowah County which is the Northern Central part of the state. Maybe you are close to me and we can get together. Welcome to the board. You will just love it here.
