All three of my sewing machines, including my new Aurora, my serger, and even my iron are Berninas.
My long-arm quilting machine is a Millenium. The most helpful people you will ever meet work in their offices in Iowa.
I am lucky enough to live five minutes from the Rockville store. Friendly people who really know their stuff.
Our amazing local quilt shop, with tons of fabric, notions, and books and great classes for all levels.
Interesting clothing patterns, especially suited to wearable art applications. The fit is wonderful!
A terrific assortment of threads, especially suited to the long-arm machine, but smaller spools are good for regular machines, too.
No question about it—this is my favorite magazine out there.
Threads is getting better every month—love this magazine, too, although it is more for the fashion sewer than quilter.
Magazine that focuses mostly on traditional quiltmaking, with some innovative techniques and quilt artists.
An educational organization that publishes a quarterly journal and hosts exhibitions and conferences.
Membership in the American Craft Council includes their publication, American Craft.
A great resource to stretch the imagination and try a few new techniques.
