    Male(ish) Quilting and embrodering

    Hi!
    Im T-J from Finland and started embrodering over my artwork in summer 2011. I make airbrushing on fabrics, leather etc.
    As a former goldsmith I like to work with hands so via good lucky news from my eldest daughter, I started to do quilting two months ago.
    Its a baby-quilt with four different cotton and elastan fabrics and 12 embrodered pictures I made.
    I found a very good material for a badding. It is meant to be used as a filterpad in big painting halls where they paint ships. It is fireproof and safe to breathe through, and most of all, its cheap.
    I use 3M sprayglue to make a sandwich. Same stuff I use with my stencils in airbrushing.
    Now I have a plan to go on with quilting. I would like to mix airbrushing on fabrics with embroidery and finally quilting everything together.
    Here in Finland we have zero longarm-machines so I have planned to get one from USA. Any ideas?
    Lets see what shall come up, quilting is really relaxing and fun.
    With best regards,
    T-J

    Welcome from the Sho-Me State - Missouri in the middle of the USA. A little concerned about your use of 3M Sprayglue - hope that it doesn't gum up your sewing machine needle.

    Hi!
    About 3M, there are different strenghts, and I use one for photos, its like a sticker-type. I also use silicon-spray (CRC) with a needle among other parts of the machine that need to be lubricated. It doesnt mess with fabrics and it washes away in a turn of a hand. Its also perfect with embroidering with gold or silver threads. So I recommend trying light spraysticker on attaching fabrics and paddings together. Though Im so green with quilting and embroidering that my opinion is still quite "narrow"...
