    Is it better to store quilts in a dry dark space like under a bed or in a closet, or can you store them in a plastic storage crate/box?

    Thank you for teaching all of us. My question is do you wash quilts and ALL your clothing in HOT water? I understand if its a newly made quilt but what about all the washings over the year etc. Doesn't this damage quilts/clothing? Is it OK to use cold or warm when using Synthropol?

    Back to the hand embroidered blocks, I am just about to quilt squares that have been thread or needle painted embroidery (wildflowers) should the cross hatch lines be brought right up to the embroidered design or should I outline the whole flower then quilt up to that line?

    If I use Synthropol in prewashing my fabrics which will get rid of the excess dye, do I still need to use Retayne to set colors that have a tendency to run, like reds?

    I am looking for a good long arm quilting machine, quilt frame, with the ability to have the software to help me quilt. Can you direct me to some good reviews for long arm quilt machines and frames.
