  1. Yesterday
  2. PLEASE HELP! I am using dream puff and had it resting for three day and it still has bumps and wrinkles. You cannot put it in the dryer or steam like my other batting’s. Does anyone know what to do? Looked on Quilters Dream Site and would call but ,of course it’s a weekend and I need to get this done.
  3. Machine is still for sale. I will consider most offers. Prefer local buyer. Thanks. Mary
  4. Guest Connie email me and i'll send you pic pf my setup for a tin lizzie
  5. Thanks Cathy for your valuable information will have to try this. Thank you for sharing!
  6. Hi Bonnie, I use Dream Puff most of the time. I just place it where the fullness is. I have placed it the length of the border when I had a big problem, but not often. I pin it down also when I have a very long place to work out. Really, its not hard to do at all. Good luck.
  7. What kind of batting were you using? I will try this when I need to take up excess border fabric. So do just place it where the fullness is or does it go the length of the border?

  9. Check with The Grace Company, they make some generic frames.
  10. Hive Mind, Looking for schematic/dimensions for a frame to accommodate a Ken Quilt 633 machine. I have an inspiration frame now, but I want more working distance. Short arm didn't work so well. Any ideas will be greatly appreciated. Thanks much. Red Deb
  11. Clover or Collins water soluble markers They have some spray/applicators to help remove the marking. Blue seems to work well.
  12. I am in need of a reliable marking tool for light/neutral back ground fabrics that can be permanently removed. I have tried Frxion (what a mess), blue and purple so called “washable” markers (they are not washable) and the Dritz colored yellow chalk (beware, this chalk DOES NOT come out). The white chalk will dust away but you cannot use white on a neutral fabric!?! I have seen numerous posts elsewhere online about how disappointing these marking tools are. But no solutions. With the advent of ruler use and marking design layouts, what are quilters using? Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!
  13. Actuality Bonnie, that was part of the reason for the extra batting, to fill up the fullness, but by the time I get my quilting on the border, I cannot really tell its there. Does that make since. I know its confusing, but for me it really works well.
  14. Does it not make the border fuller than the rest of the quilt?
  15. this quilt is gorgeous. Wonderful work!
  16. Yes, it just went to it’s new home.
  17. How do you load the backing? I float the top & batting so that isnt a ptoblem. I have been working for 4 hours now and cannot get the backing on straight
  18. Has the machine been sold and/or picked up?
  19. Thanks, Jim, for the education! You might want to send that info in to APQS Service, so that they can share correct info with our customers.

  21. I've meant to correct the misconception about this "gunk" for years now, and I guess now is the time. The black material you see here is not simply aluminum oxidation. There might be some there, but most of it is something else. I believe it is cotton dust, sizing, and dye, along with the dust we find in the air all the time. "How can I be so sure" you ask. Because I have anodized tracks on both of my machines, and I still have the black build up. Anodized aluminum does not oxidize. It is a coating created to specifically deal with aluminum's propensity to oxidize. I don't think APQS bothers to anodize their table rails, the ones for my Ult 2 were raw aluminum, which I had anodized myself. The Ult 2 carriage was anodized when I got it, as are the rails on my Gammill. I still get that black build up on them. I haven't addressed this issue before, because dealing with it, whether aluminum oxidation, or simply dirt, is the same; clean the rails with some evaporating solvent. But I've decided to set the record straight so someone else doesn't have parts of their table anodized in hopes of eliminating the problem. Jim
