    Not sure how many are familiar with quilterscache.com
    but you can get a lot of great free quilt square patterns on there! Free patterns means more $$$ for fabric, right?

    since your job is just "extra" and you work so close to a fabric shop - why don't you just have your employer direct deposit your check to the shop's bank account? save time. lol

    like misseva just said you really should just do direct deposit of your check to the shop. that way you will have a running tab and can just shop with out thinking about it. hehe

    Congrats, Texan, on your new machine. I know you will really enjoy it. Have a lot of fun and be sure and show us the results.
    Looks like you moved from one Big state to one just somewhat bigger. But we can all finally accept the fact that Alaska is bigger than Tex., and a lot colder lol. Being a native Texan myself I can get by with this remark.

    Congratulations on your new machine. I have a Joanns only half amile from home, it would be very bad having a guilt shop so close to work. Enjoy your new machine and happy quilting.

    Welcome to the wonderful world of quilting. Once you start you won't be able to stop. Start with small projects and simple ones too. If you feel overwhelmed, just get on the board and ask for help. We are here all hours of the day and will help you as much as possible. Remember to post your pictures so we can see your progress. Enjoy.

    I also have a brother SQ9000 from Walmart with the extended sewing table. Came with just about every foot that you would need and I love all of the pre-installed fancy stitches. If yours is electronically run like mine be sure not to have a magnet pin cushion nearby.
