    Bear moose panto

    I have Dave Hudson's Bear & Tree/ Moose & Tree (DH927) that I don't think I have ever used. Yours for $8.00 plus postage Leslie McSorley The Crafty Unicorn Quilting Harrington, Maine
  2. I have had my 2005 Freedom updated with an Intellistitch. I have a box of parts that were removed- Motor, aluminum housings, power cord, etc. Would anyone be interested in this stuff as spare parts? It can be yours for the price of shipping... A flat rate box could be your friend. :-) Leslie McSorley The Crafty Unicorn Quilting Harrington, ME

    Cindy Needham, vintage linen quilter.

    I want to get some of her books. Her background fillers are wonderful, but when we spoke, she wasn't sure how her DSM techniques would translate to the long-arm. What's your opinion?

    Adding Stitch Reg to Ult I???

    Merry Jo, Where does someone find a used Millie for $6000? I looked into this last year and found out my 2005 Freedom is only worth $3000 in trade at the factory. Even a same-age Millie was going to cost me closer to $10,000.

    Quilting idea organization

    Evernote is great! I keep everything from quilting ideas to grocery lists on it. I love having folders and tags to help organize things, and that it synchronizes across all my computers. When I have a big (involved) quilt to do I can keep ideas together and tag them with the customer's name so, for example, all of "Carmen's ideas" are easy to find. Best of all it's free.
  7. Entry info for Maine Quilts- the state guild show. It is a place to start... Hope you get some ideas.

    Feathers And Thank you.

    It is PPP as everyone has said, but don't be intimidated by the whole bunch of feathers. Try to just picture what the next feather should look like, nothing past that... One feather at a time, how it should curve, fill the space etc. Just make that one... then move on to the next one...

    Is that Superior across the aisle? Good luck looking at all that thread for 4 days and not coming home with lots of it... Like living next door to a bakery!

    Bottom Line Thread users- question for you

    I use Bottom Line top and bottom for quilting almost exclusively. I like the texture to show, not the thread. For piecing I use a neutral Masterpiece.

    Michael doesn't call the giant templates "Ka-Ching" for nothing Love the double wave on the bargello.

    Pushing my buttons

    Caroline is right. The push-button works with lots of the boards. I use it with Baptist Fans and Swirlz when the customer wants an E2E design in the center and a different border treatment. It makes stopping the design and SID to the next groove a snap.

    Lucey Machine -V- completely unadorned Ulti I

    You might also consider just adding the stitch regulator that is the big difference between the Ult I and the Lucey. An Intelli-stitch is about $3500 and you keep the machine you know. That's what I am going to do with my non-SR Freedom.
