Work in Progress Wednesday

Today's work in progress will be learning the new update on my Handi Quilter Avante.  Monday, June 15th, Handi Quilter released a new Pro Stitcher update with skew 2 and 500 new patterns.  Before we left on vacation, I had updated my Pro Stitcher in order to be ready for this update on June 15th.  It was a huge change for me and I am having to learn to use my Pro Stitcher all over again.  I had a quick lesson from my friend who works for Handi Quilter.  Today I will have to go it alone and possibly watch some of the You Tube videos to understand everything.  I have also signed up for classes from Elaine Gilmore, National Educator for Handi Quilter, the first part of July.  The update along with the training will take me into a new adventure of providing custom quilting for my customers.

Last night I was the guest speaker at the River City Quilter's Guild in Fulton, IL.

Cute pillow sham and an antique quilt tucked under arm.  The antique quilt was given away to one lucky guild member.  This guild was busy preparing for their quilt show in September of this year.
Today I am linking with Lee at Freshly Pieced.
Yours in quilting,

  1. I kept getting Mary W and Susan May mixed up, so she became Sister Mary Susan for our Sunday class. Wish I could have been present for your trunk show!
