Obviously times have changed. But I think there is another active quilter here in one the forums I visit... Just can't remember who it was that was talking about it one day.......
Didn't you know that as soon as sewing machines were invented quilters and other sewers (watch out how you pronounce that in your head lol)were using them? Mr Singer used to let customers have the machines and pay them off over time. I do hand quilt quite a lot but that may now change.
