    Back on the saddle stool :-)

    So glad to hear you are back to quilting again and I look forward to all the photos of your beautiful work. I sure can relate to your family flu story. Seems like anytime our kids and grands get together someone shows up with a bug that gets shared all around. We laugh about it at every holiday and have come to expect it as part of the "festivities". Glad you are settled into your new space and finding your new normal.. Sally
  2. Darlene, I would love to take these off your hands. Please email me with directions for payment at sallyquilt@zoominternet.net. Looking forward to hearing from you. Sally Weir
  3. The hover above your table surface. Mine has the capability to raise or lower the handles to whatever level is desirable for how you want to hold the handles while quilting. Think this is still part of the design. I have one of the first models Trinity offered so I'm sure she has done some tweaking over time. Love my system since I am not computerized. I get lovely results and sitting down has saved my back and knees.

    Pantos from the front

    I have the Precise Pantograph System and love it for a couple of reasons. One is that with my hands on the system handles they also ride right on the table surface and I have excellent control of the stitching. The other, and most valuable plus for me, is that I quilt sitting down which makes for less stress on my body. I have a smooth floor and use a saddle stool on wheels. Being able to relax the tension in my body makes it possible for me to stay on task rather than do a row/wander away from the frame to work out the kinks way I used to do pantos. Took me forever to get a project finished the old standing way.
  5. If you have the room get the biggest table you can. That's my only regret is I can only fit a 10' table and so many times run into issues of could have/would have. If I had to make a choice between the computer and Bliss, I'd go with Bliss. I am thrilled that I upgraded to it and have never been sorry about the money spent. One of the deciding factors for me when I got my Millie was the reposition able handles. Being able to adjust my grip has been a huge help with my hand issues. Best of luck in making your decision and happy quilting! Sally

    Hockey Quilt

    Just the thing to cuddle under while watching the game.

    Superior Kimono Silk Thread

    Since silk is so slippery, would it be work to use So Fine #50 in the bobbin? Thinking of trying this on a future project. TIA, Sally

    Progress on Star quilt

    This will be a masterpiece, Heidi. Hope you find an answer to end your discomfort. I would like to ask you...when you are finished, how will you be removing the ink marks? Thanks for posting, Sally

    The bliss option is well worth the money. Let us know how much you love it once you are up and running. Sally
  11. Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends here. I will be busy cooking and babysitting grandchildren tomorrow, more cooking Thursday morning and then after the dishes and kitchen straightened up a chance to sit and visit with family until they need to leave to head home out of state. Friday the Christmas tree goes up and Saturday I want to go to a quilt shop having a sale to get some quilt backings. I better get to bed. I'm tired just reading that! Anyone traveling, be safe and everyone thanks you for being such caring and sharing blessings in my life. Sally

    Bindings

    Love doing bindings by hand. I offer this service as my business too. Hoping the closer we get to the holidays I'll pick up a few new customers. Guess you either love it or don't.
  13. Try checking your locks. Just a suggestion.
  14. My favorite finish of the summer is just that....summer. I am not a lover of the hot and humid weather alternating with the cool endless thundershowers. Yuck! Now in to my favorite seasons, Fall and Winter. I foresee many more finished quilting projects with this change in the seasons. Rev up the longarm and dsm...full speed ahead!
  15. Not in the cards for is year but it's definitely on my bucket list. All those attending, have a great time and safe travels. Be sure to share some pictures for those of us at home.
