  1. I can't even get home owners insurance where I live that I can afford and when we did have insurance I asked about insuring my studio that we were building. (it took 4 years to build but NO loans!) I was told that it wouldn't be worth insuring that the LA made it industrial and that I was looking at well over $1000. every 6 months. I don't have that kind of money so I just have to pray that nothing happens. We have a farm and live several miles from town and have a local volunteer fire department that is only 3 miles up the road but that doesn't count as having a fire department so we just pray that nothing major happens and fix everything that needs fixing ourselves. The insurance that we had wouldn't cover our outbuildings or our well so when it did get struck by lightening we had to pay the full bill anyway so wasn't really worth much but it satisfied the bank so when I burned the mortgage we kept the insurance for another year then said nope can't do it if it isn't going to pay when we need it. Took the money that was going to pay the insurance and paid for a new well pump. So I feel your pain and I understand the frustration but I am not much help. Sorry.

  5. Any Ideas? Stumped on this Quilt

    the dashed running stitch was/ is the quilting line I would echo around that a couple of times or you could do some really close micro stippling or pebbles like has already been suggested.

  7. First Time Posting and Looking For Help

    Wendy, I went with APQS because they are made in the USA and I knew I didn't like the way some other machines felt. I never tried the APQS but I read about them watched a lot of videos and talked to the office and a rep. I just always felt like I was welcome to call about anything and I still feel that way. I went with a demo freedom. It has the same warranty as a new machine and cost less and has more upgrades. I have the L bobbin as that is the only one available at the time but I would go with it again as they say it has better tension and less problems.
  8. A NEW VENTURE IS UNDER WAY FOR ME.....

  9. Nailed it!

    ​I love Jamie Wallen I have watched most of his you tube videos and am getting ready to use his flying hearts or hearts take flight over all on my next quilt. Love those feathers.

    Well here is my thoughts: First I almost never win so I am probably not a big threat lol. Second I love my Freedom so this is what I would do several options keep both and rent out my freedom or use it for over all patterns and use the Millie for custom and then I would try to become a dealer!!!! None really in this area. Good Luck everyone!!
