    Hello from Canada

    Hello, new here from Ontario, Canada
    I don't even have a sewing machine yet/
    Is it preferable to have one with a pressure foot adjustment setting
    when quilting?
    Thanks,
    RonD

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Welcome, Ron. I have no idea what the answer to your question is, but I guess that it wouldn't hurt to have pressure foot adjustment settings on a sewing machine when you quilt.
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    Welcome from a Canadian in Minneapolis! My 1973 Kenmore has a pressure foot adjustment, so I'm assuming all machines do. It's something I rarely need to adjust - only if I switch from quilting cottons to slippery satin or chiffon. I'm excited for you to start enjoying a new hobby - welcome to the board!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.
