  1. Hello everyone.... hope all had a great turkey day.
  2. you may never have had one.... my 2004 has one and the 2006 millie doesn't. glad to know you will be fixed soon.
  3. Only wind bobbins of threads not Glide, as I use up the Superior, and others I will be replacing with Glide. Right now I'm using magna-glides with all threads I can get close to in color. Having great results with magna bobbins and Lava or other thicker threads in top. And as I am buying threads to replace my So Fine stash I'm replacing with matching Glide top nd bottom. I also like the threads to show, yet it vanishes in the ditch. The 60 weight threads are way to thin for my likes.
  4. Have you used their varigated thread? doe you have any issues with varigated or the cotton thread from Glide? I can not get king tut varigated to run successfully in my millie and it is really frustrating. Not yet for the variegated but as I need a certain color I will be purchasing. I've never liked cotton threads, but that's me. I do use cotton wrapped thread for piecing but not for quilting. In my quilts from the 50-70s which my grandmother quilted by hand They really should be redone as the threads have started to break down. It's really what you like its not what some else says. There aren't any thread police. I like how the quilting looks with Glide, Lava and Perma-cord but have used Signature, serger threads, tiny spools of dress making threads. Depending on what I had in the cupboard and if the color was the one I wanted.
  5. Let me put it this way.... For me I like both thread companies, but as I run out of Superior threads I will be replacing all of my Sew Fine and Bottom Line with Glide. It's a personal thIng....I'm liking the Glide better it's runs smoother in my machine I rarely get tension problems and love the magna bobbins. It's as simple as that for me. Should I need to use a really thick thread which I also like I'll go towards the Lava and Perma-core of Superior Threads.
  6. On the Bernina site you can look at the manual for a 1260. Not familiar with your machine so i don't know what to look for.
  7. My sister has one, and know she will never part with it. Good luck in finding one....it really is one of Bernina's best machine.
  8. I know you didn't want to sell your, but there is a listing for some that do. I was trying to up you in contact with Nicole. If you click on today's post in the header, you will see her post.
  9. There is one in NJ. Read down the forum Nicole has one for sale and several others whom have expressed selling theirs.
  10. Thanks Nancy I hadn't a clue what that was as mine are all alike except the end plate. Most are the straight lines but I do have one with the deorated scroll plate. Don't think I can make t thus time but will try soon. I have a date with the for a knee replacement. So will need to save money for that and time to heal. Sorry would have loved to get back out there.
  11. Or if we have one that we are willing to have colored. What would you charge? Have four... three never to change but one hasn't any special meaning. Also what is a crinkle one.
  12. They are more for machines that have bobbin tension problems. I would send it back. I know you can bypass the pigtail. You just don't loop your thread through it. it's not what you ordered so I would send it back. APQS has what you need.
  13. When you hear it getting dull, or your threads are breaking...I don't change as often as maybe I should, but this is what works for me. It figures out to be every 3-5 quilts depending on size and use...
