  1. I’ll try to be more conscious of stopping and see if it resolves. thanks for your response Sue, I wasn’t being ungrateful.. I thought my forum settings included sending a notification when there were responses to my posts but it wasn’t.
  2. Can anyone suggest what the possible cause of bobbin thread pulling to the top in points? Otherwise the tension is normal. I’ve tried adjusting top and bottom tension, checked hopping foot height, needle position. Thanks! Anita
  3. Thanks Barb...I have no doubt it isn’t APQS. It’s like someone has created an identity with the logo and look and they're representing themselves as APQS.
  4. Good afternoon...Odd question, but I’ve received three questionable Facebook postings today that appear to have come from APQS but are obviously not. They have nothing to do with APQS or quilting. Is anyone else on Facebook receiving them in their newsfeed? The last one was a video from “The Epoch Times” least that is what was the watermark on the video. Until I can figure it out, I unfollowed APQS.
  5. Good morning all... I’m upgrading my 2006 Millenium to Bliss and at the same time downsizing from 14’ To either 12’ Or 10’ Table (don’t have the space I had in my other home). I don’t know what to do with the displaced table and rollers, though I was told they could go to salvage. Is there interest out there in upgrading to a 14’ Setup? I’m in western NC. They could be free. Thanks! Anita
  6.’s been quite a task and I’m doing the best of my abilities at this red hot moment. It’ll be way over quilted with way too many stops and starts and SITDing...but I will have gained some much needed experience. Nearing the end now...whew...will post when finished. Anita
  7. Hello All! This is a wall hanging that I’m hoping to enter into a local guild show. To date, I’ve done very limited all over quilting or pantos or Hartley Fence circles or straight lines on my own quilts. What I plan to do on this is to use straight lines following the direction of each block side...Hope that makes sense. I’ve planned out the path to have fewer starts and stops, beginning with stitching in the ditch and then the blocks. Before I do, because I realize this is going to be time consuming (glad it’s not that big), have you quilted something similar and if so, can you
  8. Is there somewhere $ can be donated for fabric and other supplies? Thanks to all for organizing and contributing! Anita
  9. I agree with Claire. Thanks for sharing your expertise. And a shout out to so many others on this chat for the same. You're all greatly appreciated. I don't often get to share, if ever. One day I'll have more opportunity. But I do sneak some time at lunch to read and store your tips. Anita
  10. Coincidentally I started rinsing with filtered water and vinegar about 6 months ago. Has really helped my hair, it's less fly away and I've actually gotten a shine back. I'll definitely try the baking soda too since I'm allergic to the sudsing agents and surfactants in shampoos, consequently I'm limited to only a few choices, which aren't cheap. Thanks for the info Linda.
  11. I have sensitive skin and have used Dr Bronners castile soap for decades. I have had to change from the peppermint to almond over the years because the peppermint began to dry my skin out. Reasonably priced when you don't use it full strength. We overlook sthe 'spiritual' messages on the label :-) I also use Origins products for the same reason...but to me it's expensive. Anita
  12. I just spoke with APQS, Tony OTool and its a go. He said he'd let Josh, Angela and Lorraine, who will be in the APQS booth, know what the plan is. I won't be there until Friday at the earliest though.
  13. I too will be there, either Friday or Saturday, depending whether my sister can join me or not. If I find out soon enough, I'd like to try to meet some of you. I recognize Angela and her mom from Wish Upon in Raleigh. They so graciously offered me the last sought after book off the shelf and put their name on the wait list. I missed not being there the last few years. It's the only show I get to regularly and enjoy being in the midst of all those wonderful people. Have fun everyone! Anita
