    Default New To Everything! Hello From Bendigo Australia!!

    Hi Everyone, I am from Australia, and found The Missouri Star Quilting Company through the wonderful YouTube Tutorials with Jenny. I just loved them and knew that I needed to explore everything you guys have as your site seems so friendly and so so informative. I have sewed and done a little dress making many years ago and it wasn't until I stopped working that I decided that I would follow a interest I have had for many years and explore the world of Embroidery and Quilting. Now I haven't done either so I am a real beginner in that area. So as if it is meant to be I was sitting down and looking around ebay last week and found this wonderful machine that does the lot, (I hope anyway), a Brother Innovis 6000d, and I won the bid. So I am dying for it to be shipped so I can start having a play. I have booked into some beginner classes we have here in Bendigo and I will be following this site very closely, as your tutorials I have seen Jenny, have taught me so much already, I can't wait to get into the rest of them. So Hi everyone, and please if you have had experience with a machine such as mine I would be really happy to hear from you (only if it is good) lol, no no anything you have to say.

    Bye for now

    Hi Wendy and welcome to the forum! We just love all you girls from OZ!! This is a great place to learn everything about quilting and make some new friends along the way! I recently bought a sewing/embroidery machine and it has opened up a whole new world for me. I hope you enjoy yours as much as I do mine. Barb

    Welcome to the best place to be other than home - glad to have you join us, Wendy. You have come to the right place. Can't help you with your choice of embroidery/sewing machine, but we do have many experienced quilters on line.
