There was a local quilt shop about half a mile from home so I decided to take a lesson. That was it, the rest is history. Of course you can't just keep making quilts, they then have to be quilted. After taking a few of them to a local quilter I decided that I would love to try my hand at longarm quilting. (End of retirement) I purchased my first HQ Sixteen in 2007 and started my quilting business. Then in 2009 I purchased a HQ24 Fusion. It is so rewarding to quilt for people and hear there comments when they pick up there quilts.
All I can say is, What a way to retire. Now my husband and I both enjoy the quilting process and I think there will have to be another Fusion in our future.
I own the following HQ machines: HQ Sixteen, HQ24 Fusion
