One of my favorite local Democrats is my friend Chuck. We bump into each other at fundraisers and other events, and we patronize each other's small businesses. Of the two, Bailey's Sewing Center has been around a lot longer, and outgrew its original digs. It is now housed in a rambling two story building at a major rural intersection, across from a fabulous sweet corn farm stand!
DK Quilt Guild: A place for quilters to gather, share ideas, projects, and to make the world a better place, one quilt at a time. Join us and share your thoughts, projects, questions, and tips. Quilters here are at many different levels of skill. Beginners and non-quilters are welcome, too!
I have been meaning to share a visit to Bailey's with the quilters and visitors to the DK Quilt Guild; I promised this diary long ago to Melanie. Even though I am not really a quilter, my business partner helps to produce one of the parts for Bailey's Home Quilter in the small machine shop at our business.
This is a picture of Chuck in the workshop above the store. He is standing next to the beginning of a small, 13" Bailey's Home Quilter, next in line to be assembled for a customer.
There is a lot more information there, especially if you are quilter who has some experience with the longarm sewing machines. I can go to Bailey's when I need to get a belt or a bobbin for my Montgomery Ward zig-zag! I never have to worry about getting my vintage machine fixed, because Bailey's is just a hop-skip and jump from home. I appreciate that he allowed me to take some pictures so I could write this diary for the quilters of DailyKos.
Can you share your experiences with longarm quilting? What projects are you working on this week? This is an open-thread quilting diary. Thanks for visiting!
