Short Arm Machine Quilting Book

Wenda’s book is still available.  Please contact her at to order.

Welcome to the world of frame quilters! You have now begun a new and exciting journey into quilting & finishing your own quilts! As you may have already learned, quilting on a frame system is a much different technique than quilting at a machine on a table top. But it is also easier to create quilting designs and faster to finish your own quilts! Once you learn the basics, quilting on a frame system becomes less & less frightening. It becomes another technique or tool that you will come to love and enjoy. I hope this book encourages you, educates you and most of all inspires you to do more than you ever thought you could!
