    Hi from the UK

    Hi everyone,

    Just started quilting and found MSQC's tutorials on Youtube - off to a flying start and completing my third mini quilt already.

    I was inspired by atree3 on Youtube...

    Making Christmas snuggly quilts with fleece backing for my niece and nephew (I think you call it 'minky' fabric?). I"m using a 1939 Singer sewing machine - my Mum's Husqvarna went up in smoke after only 10 minutes, so we had to break out Great-Gran's old one...

    Happy quilting folks!

    Sue

    Hi Sue and Welcome to the Board!
    You'll have great fun here.
    Those old Singer's work great as long as you love them.

    Hugs,

    What if you woke up today and the only things you had were the things you thanked God for yesterday? :icon_hug:quilting trish

          Hi again Sue and ladies
          I just got back from the you tube and then links for this phenomenal lady. Very inspiration and what her walls could literally tell.
          Here is a link to her website:http://margaretfabrizio.com/

          And she has over 500 you tube videos. I watched just a few of the quilting ones:
          Start with this one:

          I betcha you will love this spunky gal. She reminds me sooo much of my Auntie Flo in disposition, outlook and appearance, it is eerie!
          Thank you Sue!!!!!!!!!!!

            Welcome Sue...A lot of other newbies here including myself. Hope you join us often. I also have 2 Singers as back ups...one from the 40's and one a hand crank from the 20's. Luckly haven't needed them yet but if there is ever a long power outage I am ready!

              The Singer is great because I can control each stitch - the modern electric machines go so fast, it is much harder to keep them under control. Haven't heard from the repair shop yet - hope nothing drastic has happened....

                Welcome to the board Sue! This is a GREAT place for Newbies, me included! It is b/c of Jenny's wonderful and easy to understand videos that I am able to quilt! Guess I could blame her for my total addiction, too, then See you around the forum!
