    Hi, my name is CeeTee and I'm a Quiltaholic!

    I'm sure you've all heard that one before...but, it just seemed appropriate...sorry! Anyway, I live in Upstate New York and have recently ordered my first longarm machine. The frame has arrived and has been set up but still waiting for my machine delivery. I'm excited and scared!! I have been binge watching youtube videos in an attempt to make myself more comfortable with the machine/process once I can get my hands on it. Any words of wisdom would be thoroughly appreciated.

    Just play on it a lot! I bought a sit down long arm at the Paducah show, and I learn more about it the more I am on it. You will love it, but you have to spend the time using it to get comfortable and proficient. I would also suggest seeking out some long arm classes in your area. I'm going to one on Friday and can't wait!

    Welcome to QB from Hot! Central California... I have an older HQ16 and the more you use it the more comfortable you get. So, just get several practice fabric and enjoy..

    Welcome to the board! I grew up in Utica and still have a lot of family there.
    I don't know anything about longarms but if you do a search you will find a lot of discussions or you could
    start one. Lots of people here to help you.

    Welcome from Ontario. When you start quilting on your new unit don’t get discouraged, take your time. It takes time to learn all the tricks of the trade. Good luck and have fun.
    Quilting is a way to wind down and to meet new and dear friends.
