... what would you buy?

Being new to quilting I don't even know what tools are out there let alone what I'd buy but I do know time and space are big things for me, so...

Bigger house with a room just for sewing in
Better sewing machine (don't know what though)
Cleaner, cook, butler (so I don't have to do any of the mundane household stuff and I have more time to do the stuff I like)
HUGE amounts of fabrics & thread

I knw there's more but I can't think what at the mo. Will come back and edit as I think of things

You already have that, Amma, we're all here to instruct and help one another! Right???

I'd want my own quilting house, lots of windows with good lighting all around, big blocking wall with flannel wallpapered to it, a long arm, an embroidery machine, a good really good serger, a cutting table waist high and big enough to lay out a king size quilt to sandwich, so I don't have to bend over to cut, lots of full of fabric cubbies with clear glass doors (to keep dust off fabric, unhuh) on two long walls, all the rulers, all the different needles, threads of every color, gizmos, and gadgets, and every size self healing rotary cutter board, and a nice bedroom, wonderful self cleaning kitchen, cook and maid to do the laundry (I'll do my own fabric washes, though) and oh, yeah, lots and lots of money to keep quilting. AND lots of friends to share it all with! :D

The instructor is for when everyone is busy with their own projects, not for the times when we would all get together to share, discuss and ooh and ahhh :D

A new, smaller home on a larger piece of land with a large detatched quilt studio placed in a garden setting, lots of windows, and a long-arm machine.

Oh, and a swimming pool to work out the kinks from all that quilting. ;)
