    Bernina 790 plus opinions

    Yes but wanted others input. Thanks
  2. I am looking at a Bernina 790 plus machine and wanting to know if anyone owns one and if there seems to be any issues with them?

    Wondering

    Thanks Linda for your information. Unfortunately I did not have the control and was told it was a gift. Nor did I know she was entering it. The batting was Hobbs 80/20 so there would have been a little shrinkage on that. Guess I will ask more of those questions if a quilt is brought to me.

    Wondering

    I have a question for those that might know. I recently saw a quilt I quilted hanging in a quilt show. I was disappointed to see how the quilting seem to have disappeared after the owner had washed it. The after pic did not turn out very well but my question. Is there something I could do differently to make for a better quilting look? I used white glide thread and my stitch length was 11. I don’t know but do most of the quilts in a show get washed. Just looking at them their quilting seems to show so well. I hope someone can share what I need to know to get a better result.

    Kudos

    Just wanted to tell all I got great service from APQS factory on my Millie. Thanks for all you do for your customers.
  7. Not sure what you were going to use for the borders but perhaps you could use what is on the 6 inch border all the way around and blend additional design on the other borders as space allows. Would like to know what you decided on in case I have this delima.

    Leaders

    I put my red snappers on extra fabric that is sewn to an extra set of zippers. I can change out the zipper with the red snapper or zip on just another zipper.

    R&S Boards for Sale

    If you would consider selling one of each board I would be interested in what you would ask for them.

    so.....this happened

    Prayers for you to heal quickly. Perhaps a small square with needle turn on it or if you know how to tat, if not you could learn. Otherwise I guess you could catch-up on lots of reading. May not be much help but trying to help time pass quickly till you heal.
  12. It is a peice of thin plexiglass and I put tape around the edges so I stop with the dry erase marker before running off the plexiglass and marking the quilt. I just use a peice of batting to erase what I don't like.

    Zippers

    Zippers

    I know this has nothing to do with your question but I just wanted to share. I use mostly use red snappers sew onto one set of zippers then the other set of zippers I can use to pin if I need to switch a quilt out for some reason.
  15. Thank you everyone for all the great comments. It is always helpful to have people to bounce ideas off of to find the right direction to make a plan come together.
