    Wanna-be quilter / sewing enthusiast.

    Hello all, I am Alisa and I want to become a quilter. I am a sahm of 3 beautiful kids and a wife to the most awesome man ever. I haven't gotten a machine yet, as I am saving for one, but I do dabble in a little bit of beginner hand sewing. I must say that all of the beautiful quilts I've seen on here thus far give me hope of possibly creating one beauty of my own. I know nothing about quilting but I'm eager to learn. So let the learning begin !!!!

      Welcome from Florida!

      While you are saving for a new machine, consider a used/vintage machine. They can often be picked up at garage sales/antique stores for $25 or so. The older machines are much better than many of the new ones.

              Welcome from North Carolina!
              Jenny's tutorials are the best!! I have learned so much from them that I am as addicted to them as I am to the fabric!!
              We have some quilt shops here that let you buy a quality machine and give you 60 months to pay without interest.
              I'm fortunate to have a dealer nearby that does the repairs etc for my Janome that I purchased as a refurbished machine from him.
              This is a great place to ask about types of machines and how well they work! Wish you the best! I never regret learning to quilt!
              And you learn something new all the time!!
