  2. CircleLord Templates and Quiltazoid

    Hi Mercedes, I think you need to mount the cog on the Circle Lord bracket (like the other small boards) in order to use it. Here, a similar board is shown in the first picture on his site (click on the picture to get a larger view): http://circlelordindex.blogspot.ca/2015/01/circlelord-designtemplates-pricelist.html If you just lie it on the back it will move around on you. Maybe you can tape it down and use it without the bracket - I'm not sure.

  6. Bobbin Cam for sale

    Item has been sold!
  7. Circlelord Vacation is over

    I have used Circle Lord boards from almost the day I bought my machine and love them! They helped me get up and running quilting customer quilts with ease and accuracy. The giant boards are so much easier than pantographs - and faster! I also love the cross-hatch system with the push button control. I am moving to a computerized system (sorry Michael!!!), but I still plan to keep a number of my Circle Lord components - particularly the cross-hatch system and the cross-hatch up front system (smaller boards) because I just don't think any computerized system could match the ease of use.
  8. Hi Everyone. I have finally installed Quilt Path after many years of 'thinking about it'. I removed my Bobbin Cam system as I don't think I will need it anymore - and there just wasn't room for two screens on top of my Millie! This is the original Bobbin Cam that I purchased through Sparrow Studios about 3 years ago. It comes with 2 cameras and everything you need to set up including the instructions. You might need to add some double sided tape to mount the camera as the tape adhered to my machine when I removed it. And you might need some extra industrial velcro tape to mount the cameras. These are things really that can't be used twice, and they are easily found at a hardware store. The original price was $245. I'm asking $75 (plus shipping). Below is a picture of it in use on my machine. At this time I will also be selling much of my beloved Circle Lord collection of tools. I have several giant boards and several smaller design boards. If you are interested, send me a note and I will send you a link to my complied list once it is ready. Prices will be about 1/2 of the current retail price. Thank you, Caroline
  9. New to Quilt Path!

    Hi! I haven't been on the forum lately. I guess I got kind of got bogged down with too much of a quilting backlog! With so many quilts to do, I finally decided to get a Quilt Path! I have to admit, I'm pretty excited! I won't get it until later this month after I return from vacation at the end of August but I'm sure I will have lots of questions. I have already been watching and re-watching all the videos and reading all the posts in this forum, but I can't seem to find the Facebook Users Group for Quilt Path that was mentioned in one of the posts I read. I'd love to join. Can someone post a link? I'd like to learn how to quilt around an applique. As I understand it, a 'no sew' area (like intelliquilter has) is being looked into, but is not available at this time. Also, what are your favourite digitized pantos? I guess I'll be selling my paper pantos and my Circle Lord sometime in the future. I'll likely post them on this forum, but for now I still need them until my backlog is done as some of my orders require them. And what is your favourite style of quilting to do on Quilt Path? Blocks? Custom? E2E?
  10. Homemade Enchilada Sauce

    Thanks for sharing! I'm making nachos tonight. Maybe enchiladas tomorrow! Can't wait to try it.
  11. Studio Renovations Complete

    Thank you everybody! To answer some questions - Yes, I do also sell fabric. The area above the quilts on display (work orders) is a cement ledge that was built in the basement when we moved there. I wish it were a table where I have room to store underneath, but it's not. We're not sure why that area wasn't excavated when the original work was done - we thought maybe it was a big rock or something (or maybe Uncle Albert's tomb )! We covered the front of the ledge with beadboard to give it a clean look and then hung dowels on hooks for hanging quilts. I can get a lot of quilts hung up that way. The ledge on top is about 4' deep and therefore the fabrics sit lengthwise. The shelves are from Costco - two 6' shelves that we used as 5 shorter shelves - we were able to cut the shelves to any height we wanted with a pipe cutter. My contractor had great ideas and showed me how to cut pipe!. Another great idea he had was to put pegboard up when he enclosed the steal support beam. On the other beam he added the light switches and an electrical outlet, fairly high off the floor which I used for easily plugging in the vacuum when cleaning..
  12. Turn around time in your area?

    Southwestern Ontario (Cambridge). My turnaround time is 8 to 10 months.
  13. Studio Renovations Complete

    Hi Everyone. It's been awhile since I've popped in here to share anything, but I've been working on my studio to update it with better lighting and a ceiling and cleaner look. There were many times I searched the forum on ideas for lighting. My situation is that I'm in a basement with no windows and low ceilings. Thank you for all your help. Loaded with ideas about fluorescent tube lighting, Deloa's lighting system, track lighting, pot lights, etc., I finally decided on pot lights that could be set in between the rafters, thus allowing the drop ceiling to remain as high as possible. We put lots of pot lights in - 29 to be exact. There are 4 BR30's in the main part of the room and 4 above the table providing good all over light. Then there is a row of 4 GU10's on either side of the table pointing towards the table. The row of pot lights above the table and the 2 rows of GU10's on either side are on their own sets of dimmer switches (3 dimmer switches - one for each row) allowing me to control where the light is coming from depending on which side of the table I'm working at and what type of quilting I'm doing. I'm working on my first quilt with the new set up today! You can see the pictures of the progress of my studio from 2005 to current here.
  14. New house - lighting for studio

    Thank you Madelyn. I purchased the daylight bulbs and am trying them out now. I only replaced 2 of the 6 bulbs so far - so the other 4 are still the halogen soft lights. I find that the room seems much cooler in tone and am liking it so far - but it is different. I'm hoping it won't be too blue when I get all 6 replaced. I read somewhere that daylight bulbs can offset seasonal affective disorder (SAD), which I have never had a problem with, but it is another point it the daylight bulbs favour.
