    Default Hi from GA

    I'm not a new quilter. I have been quilting by hand since I was about 15 years old, which is about 43 years ago. Due to issues with my hands I am now attempting to learn machine quilting. My husband bought me a very nice 600 series Juki for my birthday in May. Still trying to learn how to use it and have been doing piecing and a few practice quilts. It's a learning curve so I am sure I will be asking for lots of advice.

    Welcome to the forum, from Caifornia! I love Georgia. I had to travel there a LOT when I worked for IBM, staying for weeks at a time. The people I met during my stays there were the friendliest people I have ever met in my life.

    P.S. I also love my Juki. I hope you'll love yours, too!
    Toni ... If I keep sewing long enough, will they make their own dinner?

    And hello from your neighbor to the north in Tennessee! I am a native of GA, but have lived here for 50 years. Guess it's time to call myself a Tennessean!

    I hope you come to love machine piecing. Welcome to the forum--kind of a newbie myself.
