    Red face New Member from Vermont

    Hello, I had been wanting to join for some time so I finally took the plunge. I've been quilting for nearly 20 years and have a stack of works in progress I am slowly winding through, including a Dear Jane and Sprigs & Stars. I sew with a Janome 6600 and Bernina 240 but also love to put my vintage Singer 201-2 to the paces now and again. I have a friend who is a member here and so the site comes with recommendations. I hope I have something worthwhile to contribute soon... The biggest hurdle for me is Free Motion Quilting. I can do some basic stuff pretty well but looking for ways to improve and will be looking in posts here for inspiration.

    Thank you Cyn! I just finished another baby quilt top so I have something reasonably small for practice. I think I will keep it simple though because I have to get this quilt to the new mom very soon.

    I hope you've not been affected by the flooding there.

    Welcome from Illinois. If you love sewing on your 201 you might want to check out the "Vintage" section as well.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Howdy, neighbor! I'm in southern VT, close to Country Treasures in Chester, Water Wheel Quilts in Londonderry, and Quilt-Away in Westminster. Aren't we lucky to have so many great shops in our tiny state? Have we ever met? Send me a private message.
