Red face Hello from Colorado

Hi am new to quilting. I have loved creating and for many years I have expressed myself in scrapbooking, stamping and card making. For many years I have been debating about quilting. My sewing machine was a Singer Athena 2000 that use to belong to my husband's grandmother. I have used it for some very basic sewing projects but became frustrated with it in a middle of a project.
When I decided to take the plunge into quilting my darling husband took me to a local sewing machine store and bought me a Baby Lock Jubilant. I am still learning how to use this new machine very different from the over 40 year old machine but I am loving it.

There is a small quilting store across from my husband's office and I went in and just had them help me pick out my first project. So I am currently working on my very first top.

Welcome from NJ and congrats on your new project! I had just to chuckle when you mentioned that your Singer Athena had belonged to your husband's grandmother. I remember when a (same age as myself) friend bought that machine brand new and it was the cat's meow at the time!

Have fun and enjoy the process.

Welcome aboard! I've used a vintage machine older than I am (I was born 1960) for most of my last 30 years of quilting but about a year ago a friend of mine gave me her (replaced) modern Bernina. Quite a difference! This is the first time in 20 years that I've had both a sewing machine and a car from the current century! Have to admit, I don't like it when machines fuss back at me... so I guess I have to learn to do things the way they want and not necessarily how I've been doing it for all this time.
