  1. Millie Sweepstakes

    Oh my gosh....I was totally faithful to registering every day for the Millie. Then I think life got in the way. I don't know if I have registered every day
  2. It is happening again!!! Yay!!!! Come on now....Mary Beth needs a Millie!!!!
  3. My favorite machine ever is a vintage Singer 301. A little larger than a Featherweight, I think it is 17 pounds. It stiches way faster than the Featherweight. I sold 2 Featherweights and now have 5 301s.
  4. Several years ago, when MQS was here in Overland Park, KS, the APQS chat people decided to meet. I set up a table with a big sign. We all decided to wear APQS blue ribbons to identify ourselves. That was 11 years or so ago (wow, that is crazy), and we have some lifelong friendships because of it. I highly recommend getting together no matter which model you own.
  5. My studio is getting a facelift

    Wow!! We just never forget. Lol. I remember the panic in my mind wondering how the EMTs would get my body half way out of the attic/garage, and place me gently on the gerney. Lol. There is still a hole, and the sheetrock that I tried to put back. Oh boy....them were the days.
  6. My studio is getting a facelift

    We have decided that it was time for a redo. We tore out a bar that was along 2 walls, about 15 feet long. Started ripping off paneling. Putting up sheet rock. We are moving equipment all the time, but we are getting there.
  7. My studio is getting a facelift

    Safety first! Lol
  8. My studio is getting a facelift

    Yes! Someone pointed out that I would have room for 2 machines.
  9. Millie Sweepstakes

  10. Millie Sweepstakes

    Since my name is not David....then no I just have a butterflies...or jitters from too much coffee, not sure which.
  11. Millie Sweepstakes

    Yes, I am happy they do this so often too. Sounds like you are ready for a Millie!!
  12. Millie Sweepstakes

    I will end up buying one too. Just gotta try
  13. Millie Sweepstakes

    Absolutely!!! If I win, you can come up anytime to play. We would have way too much fun.
  14. Millie Sweepstakes

    Did you all enter today? All I had to do was enter my email address. TA-DA!!
  15. Millie Sweepstakes

    Ugh!! You are in! Maybe it will be easier after the first time. Good luck to you too.
  16. Millie Sweepstakes You have to answer a question asking if you have entered already, then next, then fill out the form, go to the bottom and study the math problem
  17. Millie Sweepstakes

    When I scrolled to the bottom and read the math equation, I almost cried Then I took a deep breath and added 4 + 0
  18. You are so kind!! Yes, you are welcome to my page. I tell everyone, every now and then, "remember we are a no politics zone". I should say no drama too...but so far so good, lol. We are planning a retreat this summer in June. It will be in Nebraska. As a matter of fact, all of the participants are form the APQS chat over the years. Should be fun....and the good news is we have one opening left. If you are interested, PM me, I will tell you all about it.
  19. How do you handle?......

    Yes, I use the blacklight too.
  20. I think I need one of these.
  21. Millie Sweepstakes

    Yep, here we go again. Look at it this way. We won't need to exercise, because our little hearts are beating fast in anticipation
  22. Millie Sweepstakes

    Awww, see it is because I pester about it all the time. Not trying to be a negative Nelly...but so far no one on the chat has won this contest. Really...not everyone has a Millie (any more) even if we are on the chat Now that my studio is going through renovation, I have room for another one....then I could be a dealer!! I would love to be an APQS dealer.
  23. Well, as you know I have a FB page, Quilting with Mary Beth. I like FB, but I think I liked the forum when we all use to be here. No offense to anyone here now, it just use to be hopping, it is very quiet in comparison. Some of the FB pages make me crazy and I leave them because of it. I hate it when the "leader" of the page releases a BOM and 40,000 people ask when will it start? where can I find the patterns? am I too late? Or if someone asks a question or needs help, 73 people post the same answer. No one reads the posts. It is like a feeding frenzy. That being said, it is nice that there is a broader audience. You see more quilters work, etc. The one thing the really makes me mad on FB is to have the dealer of a particular LA company disrespect quilters with another brand. Such bad taste. The two quilters that did this are way up on the food chain. If I had just been here on the forum, I would have never read what they said....and would have continued to buy their products. When that happened I deleted them from my FB friends list.
  24. Circle lord parts

    Yes, contact Michael at Circle Lord. He can tell you exactly what you need. He will ask you questions and talk to you about what would be best. If you are looking for used CL boards, keep an eye out on this chat, someone is always listing them for sale.
