Home Quilting Systems

In recent weeks, I have been approached by several members of the guild in regards to questions about home quilting systems. 

I purchased one of the first home quilting systems in 2000.  The table top "Superquilter". It, along with the Pennywinkle and HandiQuilter stand up frames were some of the first pioneers in home quilting systems that are designed very similiar to long arm quilting machines, only on a smaller scale budget for home use.

In 2003 considering the lack of information for new owners of these systems, and at the urging of several quilting system owners, I started the Homequiltingsystems Group on Yahoo.

This popular online forum gives quilters of the various stand up quilting systems a place to learn and share their knowledge with other quilters on  how to choose and use the various home quilting systems and the accessories that go with them. 

 I have also written and published several articles about the smaller home quilting systems for "Unlimited Possibilties", a long arm magazine.  Back issues are still available from  Meander Publishing who is currantly debuting a new publication along with their  "Unlimited Possibilities" magazine.  Their new publication is named, "Machine Quilting Unlimited", and will be specifically for the home machine quilter.

A good portion of my morning is spent at my computer answering emails and  overseeing what has become one of the largest groups on Yahoo.  "Homequiltingsystems at Yahoo"  presently has over 3500 members. (I still manage to squeeze time in for quilting though! )

If you own,  or  have an interest in knowing more about purchasing or using one of these very popular stand up home quilting frames please come and join the group at:
