  1. I sent you a message.

    I have had good luck with putting cornstarch on the oil spot, rubbing it in and then brushing it off.
  3. I have taken my featherweight to classes too. I bought a Phaff passport 2 that I am now using. I got it just before the passport 3 came out. The 3 has a thread cutter that I wish I had on the 2. It has several stitches but I haven't used them. I went to Harbor Freight and bought a rolling tool bag for $20.00 that the sewing machine fits in and it works great. The bag has pockets for the cord and foot control.
  4. I also bought pre-design studio years ago. I haven't upgraded it. It is pretty easy to use and not too expensive.

    I don't know if you are computerized or not, but he is one.

    Martelli Kwik Bind

    KCConnie, I sent you a message.
  7. I baste the edges on both sides and then just quilt off the edges. Rarely I will catch the edge and it will flip when coming back on the quilt top but this doesn't happen often.

    Red snappers

    I liked the leadergrips because they were thinner but they also cracked pretty quickly for me so I replaced mine.

    I really like it. You did a great job with the quilting too.

    What size table do you have? I have a machine set for a 14 foot table that I would like to sell.

    Dense Quilt Batting

    I would say Warm and Natural. I think it used to be thicker years ago than what it is now.
  12. Thanks for letting me know. I am going to try this.
  13. Pepsi Girl, So do you take the basting stitches out as you get to them or after the quilt is finished?
