In our years of experience with various quilt products, we have some great stories to tell and then there are a few not so great.
The quilting industry is ancient when you think about all the quilts that hang in museums.
It has only been in the last thirty years or so that I have witnessed many improvements in the quality of quilt products, quilting tools and quilting machines.
There are hundreds of small gadgets that make quilting fun and easy.
As you might imagine, when any product is tested you first form a judgment on how easy it is to use.
Then you might consider how handy, reliable and yes even how cheap they are for the return on your dollar.
There are thousands of quilt products to choose from; maybe we can help you cut to the chase by sharing what has worked for us over time.
If you're looking for products that will return the best results you should really check these out...
They will enhance your experience with quilting projects and give you more knowledge on which quilt product that will allow you to build and develope your skills.
