    Hi from a tiny town in West Texas

    Hi, new to the forum and so happy to be here. I have been quilting for a very long time, but still feel like a newbie. I am. New to the world of machine quilting, was just given a Juki TL98Q and pinnacle quilt frame and so its time to figure out how to use it. Have mostly handquilted or sent out quilt tops for someone else to quilt. I have a ton of UFO’s. My favorite thing to do it hand embroider and then piece blocks and then handquilt. I look forward to sharing and visiting with everyone.

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

    Thank you, I am so brand new to this type of forum, I am trying to learn it. But, I would love to share pictures. I started quilting 28 years ago when I was pregnant with my son. He still has that quilt, I was making for him and I hand quilted it in the 9 months. Of course it’s pretty tattered, he has taken it everywhere.

    Welcome! Your bio sounds a lot like me. I've always been a hand quilter but am learning machine quilting because I also have a million tops! I bought a Juki but not a sit down - I got the TL2010Q. (I think that's the name)
    You're in good company

    Welcome from SC Texas. I have been a quilter for along time but have learned so many new ways of doing things here that have made me so much better and faster. There is always someone here that is willing to help when you have a problem. It is a great place to be.
