Tips for Using Your Quilting Machines
If you plan on machine quilting your quilts for shows or just to sell them, making sure your work is clean and neat is significant. Most professionals will say that the best way to make sure it’s done properly is by using a frame or hoop while stitching.
The main reason why this is suggested (instead of just hand-quilting) is because it will help provide even, accurate spacing between stitches, so the result doesn’t look sloppy.
High-speed quilting machines are generally heavier than standard machines. They need stronger motors to provide greater power so that the machine can operate properly; however, they also tend to cost more than standard models.
Many people who enjoy quilting use both types of machines depending on which project they’re working with; however, if you’re planning on using your machine for commercial production, then it is well worth investing in one of these all-around quilting machine models.
