    Long Arm on the way!

    My friend, Claudia and I have purchased a long arm quilting machine!!! We are sooo excited!!! We are getting a King Quilter 18x8. We figured we would save money on outsourcing! We are totally excited we get this puppy at the end of the week roughly!! Needless to say our husbands weren't too thrilled,but considering us ladies are the one with the needles... I think they know better!!!

    Just had to share the good news!

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

    Congratulations. I hope you don't let the learning curve discourage you. Once it clicks in your mind you
    will love it! Just know that it does a little time to get comfortable using it...maybe the right word is confident
    and not comfortable.

    How fun for you to share this with a friend!
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    congrats! Bet you love it. Get some inexpensive fabric (at least 4 yrds) and some bat and be ready to play,practice, play, practice! Like a friend said when I got mine--figure that first piece will become a picnic quilt that you won't have to worry about it blowing away since it will have so much thread in it!
