  1. Top Thread Breaking

    You said it is winter and very dry. Have you tried Sewer's Aid on your thread? Do you have the correct size needle for the thread you are using? When you rethreaded, did you pull the thread out and completely start over? Double checked your thread path? Made sure your top tension is not too tight? Let us know what happens!
  2. Fabulous! You certainly put the information you learned to excellent use. Congratulations!
  3. Beautiful work! Thanks for sharing, Libby.

    What kind of machine do you have, and what year is it?
  8. Kerry, do you belong to the Quilt Path Facebook group? If not, put in a request to join, since you will then have even more people with a potential answer to your problem. Sorry I can't help you directly, but I don't have Quilt Path. Good luck!

  10. Thanks, Libby! I did post it on the We Love APQS page when I posted it here, since it seems many Forum members have switched to that venue.

    Always nice to hear about excellent customer service!
  12. Here's a picture of the quilt, for anyone who would like to see it.
  13. Hello Everyone, Yesterday, I received a package from Himself (a.k.a. RitaR's husband, Roland). Imagine my surprise when I found a ribbon and evaluation form, along with a letter from Roland. Here is what he had to say: Dear Betsy, Pray you and your family had a joyful and present Thanksgiving. Mine was enjoyable, spent with my daughter, son-in-law, and grandkids. Our quilt guild was in need of more quilts for our quilt show, so decided to enter the one you gals made for Rita. I was using it on the bed. It won a ribbon, so I'll send it on to you. I'm enjoying looking at it and reading the writing on it. I thank you gals again for making the quilt. She enjoyed when she first saw it, and was wanting to see it again later, but just never got up the strength to do it. Pray you all have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Rita's quilt won second place! I had tears in my eyes when I saw the ribbon and read Roland's letter. Wasn't that nice of him to send that for all of us to see? I know this was a group project, but I hope no one minds if I keep the ribbon. I never expected to have a quilt with my work win anything, and this means a lot to me.
  14. Connie, so glad you are OK! Sorry I don't have any idea what could have caused your needle to shatter, but I can certainly see your point about eye protection. I have worn glasses for 50 years, and am sure they have kept gunk out of my eyes during that time, but never like your experience. It will be interesting to see if anyone else has had this issue, or has an idea about what may have caused the problem. Stay safe!!
