Update on the Fast and Free Update!

I received word from UPS today that the first shipment of DVD’s will come tomorrow, Wed 2/7/07! I need to watch one disc from start to finish to reassure myself there were no problems with replication, (i.e. could the replicator sneak in a brief interlude of porno between quilting scenes?!) and presuming there are not, (I expect there to be NO problems), then it should be available for sale Thursday 2/8/07. If everything goes as planned, there should be a video clip available to preview on the website to give you a sense of what is covered in the DVD. In a snapshot now:

-Total run time is 2 hours and 12 minutes
- Chapter line-up includes:
Basics of Free Motion Quilting (machine requirements, special feet, needles, tips to make the job easier and stitching better, etc)
Preparing the Quilt Sandwich (importance of adequate basting, how to create a spray basting wall, demo of spray basting a quilt on spray basting wall)
