  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. I prefer the rolls to bags as well as they seem to need a bit of airing or stream to get the wrinkles out, but once that's done they are great as well.
  4. Like Patty they are my exclusive bobbin.
  5. are you sure you got the fuse in correctly.... I had one person call and they actually had put the fuse back into the draw area of the cord instead of the correct place...therefor not getting any power. also check to see if the fuse is actually a good fuse,. They do break easily and still look okay. Have gotten several from Radio Shack with the wire broken inside.
  6. Beth, you explained it as well as I could, but I would only add that; if they do buy an discounted machine even if it does say Brother for example, the Brother dealers very well will not work on it. The surgers from WalMart or some other discount stores are not quality machines and if it wasn't sold by a dealer, not all dealers will bother to work on them. Nor more importantly can they get parts for them.... Agree with statement above I would buy any of the Babylocks....
  7. Thanks Sylvia...Not sure why the thing is full, best go and dig it out. Trying to get unpacked and reset up.
  8. I'm here..... call me at 405-533-1025. Still in Boxes and not sure where everything is, but would like to get some information and put on the list...I have two others that are also waiting.
  9. Not sure if I will or not.....have the paint chips, and sort of planning on it, but it will all depend on whether I find the studio or not....will however copy and print the instructions so if I don't get to it as you all will I will at least have it an then start after the next year. With moving to Oklahoma recently I have to say I have a huge mess and can't find anything right now. I do need to find "MJ" as I have a customer quilt that I promised finished by December 15th...argh best get with it.....off to unpack more boxes.
  10. (406) 624-0451 Has anyone just called her....emails get lost and forgotten.... if she is still setting up there may be issues not intended to miss, but life getting in the way. I love my base...I never take it off, and its worth the time to call and get someones attention.
  11. oops!!!! at least it wasn't a major skinning job.
  12. I apologize for not being here more.....and because of that I just heard. Please know that I will be adding you to my prayers, and if you need anything please call.
  13. Again thanks everybody.....it was a good day all around.
  14. Thanks ladies..... Off to AppleBees for my birthday dinner. Great day. Even played in the studio for a bit today.
  15. After awhile you will catch the blinking light out of the corner of your eye, but hear it nope.....
  16. Depending on how bad the rip is off yes you do. I always rip both sides. I always get more than needed to start out. But sometimes customer get exactly what need. However sometimes if you get two people to pull on it that sometimes.... Not always but will help get it straighter but its not grid straight.
  17. The only thing I would add, and if I missed it already being said please forgive the added post, is that if your store won't rip it please keep in mind you might need to have them add a foot or so extra fabric. The reason I bring this up is I have had to many customers have the stores cut exactly the 8 inches extra needed and then when you go to rip it because it is SO off that you will have a 1/2 inch at the start of the rip and 18" at the bottom.
  18. I agree...your patch job is a very good one. I would let her know it was already there, and that you did the best patch job possible. Not sure I would even suggest a discount. Follow up with the Fray Check as Shana suggested and it will NEVER come out.. Just be careful to keep it on the actual threads around the area, and not get crazy...sometimes on certain fabrics and you never know which it will happen on...it leaves a white mark when washed
  19. Actually Patty yes....she is way closer to you than I am currently... she lives in Montana. OH, darn guess I'm going to have to fly home to help her learn how to use it.... whooooo is me...... Also she will be putting her 2005 HQ 16 up for sale soon so if any one knows of someone needing or wanting a stitch regulated HQ let me know. I figure when we all retire...we can have dueling Millies....
