I started a YouTube Chanel

It takes up a lot of my space to upload a video directly to my blog so I finally took some time to figure out how to upload a video to YouTube.

I did one as a test…..lets see how it works.

Back to hand quilting tonight

Happy quilting

    Everything Tim does is Amazing! Thank you for demo.

    Awesome. Thank you for taking the time to make and post the videos with commentary. It is easier to understand how you quilted this. Lots of helpful suggestions.

    Oh Tim! LOVE this and love you for doing this! The specifics at the beginning re: machine set up, thread, needle, marker ar soooo helpful, as where the ones that came along as the video progressed. In awe of your ability to talk the whole time to explain what you are doing (I fall into the “have trouble walking and chewing m at the same time” camp). Have subscribed to you utube channel – know there will be more great instruction to come. Thank you so much for taking the time to share this will all of us (and thank Teddy for his excellent supervision)

    Thank you Tim, it’s always so helpful when you can see an actual visual. Although I can’t image how you manage the multi tasking of moving your feet, quilting and talking all at the same time! I could never do that.😄 Hugs to Teddy

    I loved this! Will you do some you tube posts while hand quilting too?? Thanks

  6. Cathie Lanier says:

    Tim, I just watched the you tube video. The video seems fine and your talking seems fine. I need to watch a couple more times. I don’t know if you know this yet or not, but the words that go along with your voice are very, very incorrect. I am sure it’s not what you want at all.

  7. Good job! I have uploaded short videos of my dog from my iPhone–that’s really easy! Wouldn’t know where to start with what you have done! Thanks!

    Great video, Tim! Thank you!

  9. Tim It was riveting. I am a solitary quilter in that I don’t know anyone that quilts. Your video helped me so much. I have been practicing free motion but haven’t been very coordinated so far. Your relaxed style along with the marking is something to emulate. Thank you, I now look forward to my next practice session. Sue Summerall

    good idea Tim!! Your patient work is such a good example of doin it right that Youtube is a natural step. That you will share so freely says everthing about you. I saw your McIntosh quilt in a quilt magazine yesterday with the award for best use of color, sweet win!!

  11. Melanie Greenway says:

    Thanks Tim. Love the “Always have a supervisor” at the end! I love Teddy! You are so generous with your knowledge and it is so appreciated. A friend and I just took Harriet Hargrave’s Heirloom Quilting Bootcamp at the N.C. Quilt Symposium. I had never had my free motion foot on my machine. So now it is practice, practice, practice!

    Hi, Tim! It’s me again. I have done some checking and figured out the problem. I was watching the YouTube version and it was on closed caption, for some reason. I was also watching it on my tablet. The problem was that with my tablet being smaller than my laptop, the closed caption wording was in the way of seeing what you were doing. Whoever has typed the closed caption wording has not typed the words you have said. So, taking the cc off the video, it is an absolutely excellent video, Tim! Just wanted to get back to you and the others to let you know what the situation was. Keep up the good work and sorry I jumped before doing a little more checking!

      Interesting…I didn’t even know there was such a thing as closed captioning on a YouTube video….they must use some sort of voice recognition software to do that…..which I am sure would cause it to be off , particularly with the sound of the sewing machine competing with my voice …….
      happy quilting

    Your video was excellent. Watching you free motion quilt was almost hypnotic, a very relaxed style on what to me looked like a complicated pattern.
    Impressed with your foot- hand-eye co-ordination. It is difficult enough to just press the sewing machine peddle, let alone keeping the pace of a treadle machine even.

  14. Rose in VT says:

    Wow Tim – great job as always!

  15. Barbara Rasch says:

    Loved the u-tube instructions. It’s amazing how you concentrate on the treacle and quilt at the same time. I can’t even do what you do with my electric machine. Your just talented. Hi to Teddy.

    Perfect! This will give lots of us the confidence to at least try machine quilting. You make it look easier than it is but your encouragement is priceless. It’s a gift that you share with all of us who enjoy your work.
