I've been searching the web for information on machine quilting frames and stumbled upon this site. Wow does it look like there's lots and lots of info!!

I am a self taught quilter with a looooong way to go. I'd really like to find a shop or group in the Raleigh area where I could better my limited quilting skills and also learn how to machine quilt on a frame. I learn much better from being shown than from just reading.

I'm looking forward to many hours browsing this site!

Hi Lori, I also joined the forum today and I am also in NC, I live in Wendell. Like you I am a self taught quilter witha lot more to learn. I have finished two quilts and have one that i am quilting now and also have three or four quilt tops finished ready for quilting. I have just a regular sewing machine that is not good for quilting so I do all the quilting by hand.
I think we will learn alot from these girls in the forum.

Welcome! You're right, there's a lot to learn from and be inspired by!

We also have fun and lean on each other in hard times. We consider each other a part of our quilting family!

Welcome Lori! I now live in MN but lived in NC for a total of 7 years over the course of about 15 years! Classes are great and when I get my quilt frame in September, we can learn together online!

Thanks everyone for your warm welcomes! I'm looking forward to lots of reading and learning (just have to make sure I get work done too! 8)

I'm going to pick up a Grace Quilting Frame tonight, I can't wait. I found a used one and I am soooo looking forward to not having to wrestle my quilts around on the table anymore.... yeah!!

Craftybug: We aren't very far apart at all, I live in Raleigh. Once our youngest is off to college, we are planning on moving to the south side of town, Garner, Fuquay or so. Gotta get out of the 'burbs. Congrats on doing the hand quilting, I don't have the patience for that..
