I have searched and searched, and quilting templates for us hobby quilters with short arm machines are few and far between and Very spendy! These, are NOT!
So, who are Art and Sue? What is Suzy Q Quilter??? Well, meet Art and Sue...
Now, let me tell you a little about Art and Sue, first of all, they are two of the nicest people I have ever met in the quilting world, and as we all now how nice quilters tend to be that say a LOT!
And Art, well Art reminds me a LOT of my darling hubby, very much the same personality, outgoing when needs be, but you just know he would rather be in his shop engineering or making something!
So that is a quick glimpse at Art and Sue, Why you may as am I telling you about these two wonderful folks? Well, like I said, Art and Sue make and sell Suzy Q quilt frames. Now for those of you who are professional long arm quilters, this will mean nothing to you, but for those of you who are hobby quilters like me, I am very impressed and interested in this frame, it is well built, has a lot of the options that we look for in a hobby frame, (I love the easy lift for the take up rail). Now I don't own a Suzy Q frame yet, But, when I save the money to purchase a longer arm quilting machine you can bet the Suzy Q in the frame I will be putting in on!
I do encourage you if you are a hobby quilter like me, want to quilt but just cannot see spending 7 to 10 thousand or more on a quilting machine and frame, Check out Sue's web site http://www.suzyqquilter.com/
Not only do they have their quilt frames for sale, the are also authorized dealers of the Bailey's Home Quilter, the Baileys is a very nice 15" machine, that is made just for us the hobby quilters, they have recently added a stitch regulator, so you can get the machine with the regulator or with out! And check out the package deal they offer.
The 15" Bailey (non regulated) and their 104" frame, for $3350.00!!!! ( a stitch regulator adds about another $700 to the price)
Oh yea, I am all about saving cash!!! Plus like I said before, two of the nicest folks in the quilting world, boy if you have a question or a problem they are right on it!
OK so back to the templates, I have been quilting up a storm ever since I got them, Check out this little Gem....
This one got a series of 8 pointed stars, let me tell you stars.. I have never been able to quilt stars! and look at this... How awesome is that!
So, whether you are interested in a home quilting system that can't be beat, or in just adding some templates to your existing system, stop by and say Hi to Sue and Art, place an order, or look for them at some of the west coast quilting shows, they do travel the circuit, Tell them that Ginny sent you! And if you do see them at a show, check out the Bailey's, great machine, great frame, great people!
