    Hey all, I've been following Konstantine's newsletter since the early days, but never joined the message board. I've really enjoyed all the infor she has given in the past, really helpful. I even bought her applique download and how to bind a quilt.
    I have been quilting for a long time. My first quilt was a hand embroidery of all my high school friends. My Mom and her friends hand quilted it for me. I didn't think much about quilting until my daughter needed a spread when she graduated from her crib to a twin, so Mom helped me with that, too. I was bitten by the quilting bug, but I still made clothes for the kids. When they were older I went back to work part time and took more quilting classes. Soon I saw Harriet Hargrave's machine quilting book, and I loved the free motion quilting. Then I started teaching for different shops as well as in Bernina stores close by.
    I'm retired now, but I bought a mid arm Gammell the year I retired and am still learning to use it. Went to MQS in KC last month and took a couple of classes and am eager to get back to quilting. Life sometimes gets in the way. :-)
    I tried Rhonda Woodsmall's little bookmark and really enjoyed doing it. I downloaded the first part of A Softbox Pincushion and am patiently waiting for the second part to be posted. Have I missed it? I was dog/cat sitting for my daughter, and my husband gets on the computer and delates the "unwanted ones". I hope that wasn't one of them. Please let me know if there is any way I can get the second part so I can make one.
    I think I have rambled long enough.
    Happy sewing. Jan

    Welcome to the board! I know you will enjoy it! I'm glad you liked my bookmark tutorial. I make alot of them and think they are so easy.
    As for the softbox tutorial I don't know when the second half came out or is coming out.
    I understand it goes out to differant ones at differant times so I'm not sure when you would get it. Konstatin puts it into the system and it is sent out automatically to you depending on when you signed up for his newsletter and that is as much as I understand!
    If you don't get it soon I will send you the link for it.

    Hope to see some pictures of your work!! Glad to see you join us!!

    Hi Jan,

    Welcome, I live in the KC area. I have always wanted to long arm quilt but don't think I can do it. I have never been to the MQS here. I kept telling myself I was going to go, but there is next year.

    Hi Jan and welcome from Argentina. Yes they did do the second part of the soft pincushion box. Go to Admin on the first page of the forum and ask if she can post it again. Please post some of your work we would all love to see it.
