What Quilters Really Want

Quilter’s Wish List


Did anyone catch the ad on the internet for the iSO Sewing Machine, the first iPad compatible sewing machine? While this was unfortunately just an April Fools Day hoax, it got me thinking about what we quilters really want.


Here is my list:


The Stitchmobile and Stitchmobile LE- Volvo and Huskvarna join forces to create the first sewing-machine powered automobile. Piece those blocks while stop-and-go driving around town; quilt them during longer rides. The more winding the roads, the lovelier your free-motion meander stitches. The Stitchmobile LE (Luxury Edition) would come with an embroidery module. Put the feed dogs down and you can ride safely on ice and snow.


The Keurig Stitcher- Just push a button on your sewing machine and it brews your favorite hot caffeinated beverage. No worries about spilling on your quilt; it comes with a permanently attached straw.


The Endless Bobbin- While your bobbin thread is running out from the outside of your bobbin, the Endless Bobbin is rewinding from the inside of the bobbin from a large cone of thread stored under the bed of your machine.


The Longarm for People Who Don’t Have Room for a Longarm- Think Murphy bed for stitchers. Pulls down from the wall when needed. When not in use can be used as a design wall.


The Quilter’s Master Card. Earn trips to Houston, Paducah, Lancaster, etc. Because quilters are sociable creatures and will be travelling “en masse”, you will qualify for great group rates.

I like the idea of the endless bobbin and the Murphy type Long arm machine!
