    Default Machine Quilting

    Maybe its just me, but after I have worked on my quilt top for so long I am so impatient to get it back after sending it to MSQC. I think it would be awesome if there was a way to update the account or send an email that gave a bit of hint as to where the quilt was in the process.. for example, your quilt was received today you are number 46 in line, then an update that we are working on the backing, we are working on the binding and such.. wound make me feel better that my poor little quilt wasn't left hanging all alone. Anyone else feel this way?

    I have seen the queue of quilts in their machine quilting area, I doubt if your quilt will ever be hanging there alone!

    No disrespect intended to MSQ, but that is one of the reasons I would never ship my quilt to a longarmer. I want to know when I drop it off, when I can expect it, and like the personal contact that I get if there is a delay. Until I can afford my own LA machine, local us the way i'll always go.

    Oh i know you weren't being disrespectful, i only was concerned that MY comment might be taken that way.

    300 miles, That far? I must have at least a dozen within a 20 mile radius to choose from.
    I see a potential business opportunity for someone in your area

    but in about a 100 mile radius there are less than 5,000 people where I live... not a lot of quilting going on

    It would be awesome if they had something like the Dominos Pizza Tracker.

    We don't have a Dominos here on Kauai, but the new commercials are great. Ferris Bueller is one of my all time favorite movies.
