    I made a massive mistake

    Hi everyone, I very seldom post or reply to posts but this one, has really upset me. Yes, I have heard about the dealings with Dave Sr. after he had set up my older Millie a few years ago, luckily, I did not have problems. I do feel Judi's exasperation and the frustration of not having a running machine, but I feel this forum is not the place to accuse, slander and muddied others' names and ruin their reputations. I agree with Shana, this should be a matter settled by a lawyer or a small claims court. We must remember that one little " bleeding thread" can really taint the whole quilt, so one ugly word spoken in anger can ruin friendships and forums friends in this instance. Lets be civil and respectful of one another. Merry Christmas to all!!! Lucrecia Pawlak

    HI, I do not fully float my top....but what I did for my batting to keep it off the floor was to take an old queen sized top sheet...fold it in half....attache a "tie" to each corner....then tie the ties to the end supports of my table....this makes a sort of sling underneath my machine....and I just toss the end of the batting into that to keep it off the floor...works good....and totally free as my sheet was an old one....and my "ties" where actually selvage edges trimmed off of backing.....oh...and I buy batting on a roll....I only quilt for myself so a roll last a while....how I handle that is that I had an old shower curtain rod.....that I put in the center of the batting roll....and the rod is suspended between two slat backed dining room chairs.....easy peasy to switch out the batting rolls on the shower rod.....and I found an old piece of trim that was long enough to lay across the batting roll....I measure out the amount of batting.....then take that trim piece, lay on top of the batting roll in the right spot and use a chalk marker to make a line....then I use a long scissors to cut of the piece of batting.....again....it was a no cost invention....tee hee.....Lin

    I built a sling too like sewingpup with a repurposed top sheet, ran pockets up the long sides, put rope thru the pockets and tied loops in the ends of the rope and used cheap bungee cords to hook it up to my table supports. Works great! I work pretty slow, so I can't imagine letting a quilt drag on my floor for a month or so.

    Just saying hi!

    Good Morning Heidi, I, for one have really missed seeing you on the forum. I was wondering about the twins and how Landon was doing. I think about you guys every once in a while, and I will through up a prayer for you all. So glad you are moved and got that part over with. I always hate to move, seems like its such a stressful time for everyone. Hope you and family have a very Merry Christmas, and a Happy and Blessed upcoming New Years.

    I thought that this APQS site was to support people in a positive way, not tear people apart. It sickens me to read the hateful words and attacks on good people. Let’s be nice people!

    Judi contact a lawyer and have him/her write a letter to Dave Jones to get this resolved. You as a consumer have rights. Jessica and DeLoa deserve a little respect. They are small businesses in a small quilting world. Reputation is everything to them. Please don’t ruin it! Let the authorities handle this. File a lawsuit if you wish. That should get his attention! Let’s all be nice and respectful and work it out through proper channels.

    Jessica I admire you for taking the high road here with regards to Cagey. I admire you and your mom, always. This entire situation with your dads behavior is unfortunate. I hope that whoever has had problems gets things resolved appropriately through the right channels, not dragging it out to air on the forum. It makes me very sad to see the negativity that is written here. Things can be resolved between this person and your dad through proper legal channels without dragging the drama out on this site. You and your mom do not deserve it one bit. You both are top shelf good people. Those who need resolution should contact the legal authorities have the proper authority deal with Dave Jones. You, Jessica and your mom have highest integrity and you do not need this drama to ruin it. Continue to Stay on the high road because the view is so much nicer up there. Love, Shana

    Judi, I’m really sorry you are dealing with this and understand that you are upset. There really isn’t much that I am able to do other than talk to them about fixing it. I’m pretty upset myself about being pulled into the last post. The last thing i need is an internet campaign set up against me because of completely unrelated business my dad does. Some people might think it is effective to add my brother and me to the list, but doing so is cowardly and borderline libelous. I will do my best to help you.
