I just spent 2 days with my friend, Dawn, of Spring Water Designs. She's a designer, quilter, and Handiquilter Rep. We did some shop hopping up through Lancaster County, PA - the BEST prices for quilt fabric! My stash report will reflect a little retail therapy.
Tuesday we attended a training with the Handiquilter Educators. You've heard me say (write) this before - I L.O.V.E. my Handiquilter. And now - I love it even more. I'm upgrading to the HQ Avante. It's a little bigger and a lot smoother and I'm sew excited.
The training was on the new ProStitcher - HQ's computer quilting system. It is wonderful! I have the original ProStitcher (now called Classic ProStitcher). There were a number of things that I didn't like about it - things I wished it did. The new one? DOES IT ALL! I wasn't planning on upgrading my PS ... but ... well ... I'm crunching numbers.
