Q&A with Brenda P

Julia N Roy Hyett asked:
I'm looking for a basic tutorial for quilting with my new Destiny can you recommend a video to walk me through this operation?
Brenda P answered:
Before I can make any recommendations it would be helpful for me to know if you want help with the piecing part of quilting or with free motion quilting. Also what kind of experience have you had in the past with other machines and what type of machine. I would be happy to share what I think would be helpful
