Kestrel's Computer and Sewing Machines

The most-requested blog topic from last year's survey was about my tools: Anything and everything I use in my studio to make my art. There are lots and lots of things I use for every quilt, so I've split this topic into four separate posts. This first post is all about my computer, my sewing machines, and the extra stuff that goes with them.
