  1. Angela Walters is asking for prayer for her brother Nate who was in a motorcycle accident this week. Wanted to bring it here as I know there are a lot of prayer warriors among you. He is in a drug induced coma and making strides in the right direction. She is raffling off a quilt to help out God bless and Merry Christmas

    panto storage

    I have a IKEA cabinet drawer set called ALEX that I store all my pantos and threads in. Since the drawer are shallow I can easily read what pantos are in each draw with a quick glance...if I have them turned all the same direction!

    I also have a Gammill and I can run most any thread in it. But I haven't tried metallic or the invisible thread. I have used Connecting Threads "Essential Pro", So-Fine, Perma core, Floriani, Metro emb thread, and Wonderfil. The Essential Pro is my favorite just because of the price. If price were not a concern I like So-fine, less lint. Hope that helps.

  4. Good morning Regina, I have attached a pdf of the interchangeable hopping feet for the APQS machines. When the APQS online store is back up, you can also find them there. This pdf will explain which feet are meant for ruler work. If you haven't got the proper foot for ruler work, you could damage your machine. I knew I wanted to do ruler work when I ordered my George so I ordered it with the machine. When my George arrived, I received the ruler kit for the stand up machines so I had to call and they sent me the correct kit and a package to return the one I received. You will never receive

    I use prewound classic bobbin thread from Filtec almost all the time, it's thin like bottom line but there is limited colors available. My customers like Glide threads, I love it too.

    I use So -Fine top and bottom if I wind my own bobbins. If I buy pre-wounds, then I use Fil-Tec and I absolutely love Glide thread. It's a little heavier and has a great luster to it. These are definitely my go-to threads though.

    Doctor Who quilt

    This one was finished on 12/24 for a Christmas gift for my 18 year old Whovian daughter! The pattern is "Relatively Dimensional." I used minky on the back. Now I have to make another for myself! I digitized the embroidery on my embroidery machine so it would look official.

    Hi Suzy. I have an APQS - was new to longarming when I bought it. APQS recommends Superior Threads, especially for new longarmers. www.superiorthreads.com. Don't use sewing machine thread - it's too weak. I like to use Superior's SoFine #50 (50 weight) on top, and their Bottom Line (60 weight) in the bobbin. Wide range of very nice colors. Once you get really familiar with your machine and your quilting, then branch out to other types and brands. There are lots of great threads out there.
