    Lightbulb Machine Quilter Business Manager Software

    Hello everyone! I stumbled across this software for longarm quilting business and it looks really great. I was wondering if anyone had reviews about it? The introduction video goes over everything the program has to offer and it looks like it has everything and more of what I am looking for. Check it out and let me know what you think. Or I would really love to hear from folks that already have it and use it. Thanks again!

    Greenie- I would suggest asking your question (or searching) on Machine Quilters Resource. Its a website with all things maching quilting- for domestic, sit down or reg stand up long armers. I know I have seen this subject over there. I have looked at it myself and if I decided to really quilt as a business, it would be something i would invest in. I am not affliated with MQR..just a happy member.

    www.mqresource.com

    PM if you need help over there. Its my other stop besides FB and here.

    I did machine quilting on my Bernina. After help from a tech person, I ended up doing all my invoices on Excel. With a business, you must always struggle to keep costs low.

    I don't know anything about it or what the cost involved is but we've been running a business for years. Originally, I did everything on Excel. If you aren't doing a great deal of business this will work fine. When our business got larger, I started using Quickbooks. It's very easy to use and you don't have to be an accountant to understand it. The basic Quickbooks is pretty reasonable since you won't need the payroll or inventory features.

Size:  243.2 KB I wrote the company but i am not getting any help yet. They do not have a very good faq section either. There are only 5 issues described and none of them apply to my problem. And there is no yahoo group either. If anyone knows how to help, please let me know. Thanks.

    Another vote here to go over to the MQR board and ask. There are a LOT of quilters there who use this software.
