  1. Since you are only going to use it around the holidays, have you considered a Cameo cutter? It doesn't use dies, you use your computer to set up the designs. It has drawbacks. Only something less than 12 by 24 inches and only one layer at a time. It really depends on what type of shapes you plan to use. If you want to cut strips, it doesn't work well due to length restraints. I have the Go, Go Big, and Studio cutters and love each for what it does well. I cut my strips with the Studio model. Other shapes depend on what die I have. I have adapters so I can use some of my Go dies on the Studio. You might want to actually try each of the options before buying. I don't know anything about the Sizzix. My niece does a lot of scrapbooking and loves her Cameo. She was shocked when I said I wanted to cut fabric with mine.
  2. Very good information to know. I have had some experience with the ghost marks. I will be more circumspect when using the pens in the future.
  3. Well worth the time to read it. I lauaghed all the way through it. Gloria is truely one of us.

    While making an adjustment on JJ (my Milli) I was glancing through my repair manual. There was a section on mag collar adjustment. It was noted that if the hook finger is not stopping in the correct position this could cause the bobbin thread to not pull up. Have you checked this out? My repair manual is from my maintenance class with Amy.
  5. I have decided that I don't have a stash, I have a collection of fine textiles.
  6. I have just ordered Quilt Path for my Milli. I would appreciate any hints you can give me on its use plus any ideas you have to help me learn the system. Pamela

    The quilt is outstanding. Both the quilting and the applique are fantastic.

    Chris, Would you consider someone from Chillicothe for your group? There are several of us in the Chillicothe area and I know many (me for one!) would like to join a group such as you are planning. Pamela

    I too am praying for a speedy recovery.
  11. Kenna, I'm so glad to hear you are on the mend. You have some wonderful bosses to be that generous. I will continue to pray for you. I don't always post a reply that I am praying but I always do pray. Pamela
  12. You have a wonderful birthday gift, she is adorable. Be careful of letting her be a lap dog. I had a very large Airedale once and she always thought that she was a lap dog. She just hung over on each side, front paws on one side and rear ones on the other side. The paws touched the ground too but in her mind she was my lap dog. Pamela
  13. Thank you Georgene for the close pictures of this quilt. I made one of these quilt tops. It is sitting in a pile of quilts to be quilted. I needed the inspirstioin of your quilt to give me ideas on how to quilt it. I might think about quilting it now. Pamela

    Thats a really cute quilt. You did stay off that ankle didn't you? Pamela
  15. Note to Self

    I got a new head for JJ last year. The new models have the speed gauge on the front and the back of the machines. I think that was a great new feature. However, that doesn't mean I won't remember to turn the speed, it just means there are more places for me not to look. Pamela
