Bill & Catherine's Helpful Tip:
How to have more fun quilting?
This should be fun, right? Well, it's kind of like golf. If things are going well you are having a great time. If not, then not so much, right? It's difficult to control your golf game but easy to control your quilting.
If the project is coming out good you are having more fun, Yes?
Slow down. We speak with so many artists and ask them what is their secret to nice workmanship. Almost all of them say by slowing down, they have more control in piecing, applique and quilting. They need to redo/unstitch less, therefore more fun, better result.
Use a reliable sewing machine and good quality fabrics. How can you enjoy yourself when your machine is having issues all of the time? On the same hand why put hours and hours into a quilt only to use poor quality fabrics? It doesn't make any sense to do that to yourself.
Use the right tool for the right job. Golfers don't use the same club for every shot do they? Quilters should be using their walking foot for all jobs with multiple layers.
We offer basic service on any make and model of machine for a flat $75.
If you purchase a machine from us the same service will only cost $50, and on our large machines the first service is FREE.
ELNA is the best machine on the market today and we have models in almost everyone's budget range. Just like our fabrics, we only sell the highest quality at affordable prices.
