Right before a surgery to remove my knee and replace it with a plastic box I found out a HQ Pro-Stitcher educator (Linda) was going to be at Quilt Trends in Columbus, OH. I refused to ask the Dr. permission to go because I knew it would be denied. Four days after the removal of my knee and a spacer inserted, I called and begged my friend to take me. I have a great friend and she agreed to take me and be my chauffer and nursemaid.
The day came to make the three hour drive. I was loaded in the back seat of the car with pillows, wheel chair, walker and pain pills and off we went. I spent the next two days soaking in knowledge.
Unfortunately my medical problems took longer than expected and I was not able to get down stairs to use my machine for over a year. But now I have an actual knee instead of a plastic box and I can finally say I am on the road to recovery. I am able to go downstairs to practice. I am learning the HQ Pro-Stitcher but really want to be able to freehand quilt. It’s been a long 2 years but the joy I feel when I’m downstairs working on my HQ Sixteen is makes everything worth it.
I own the following HQ machine: HQ Sixteen
