  1. LinneaMarie, Now that's a cool studio--or should I say a Woman's Cave!! Once you get in there, you never need to leave. Awesome! Your freind in Illinois, Deb
  2. With the recent price increases in battings, Pellon Legacy is now considerably less expensive than similar items from Hobbs, Warm & Natural, and Dream Cotton. The program that Legacy has with long arm distributors like myself is designed to get batting into the hands of long arm quilters at the absolute lowest pricing on quality batting in the marketplace. The program is simple. Legacy sells us batting at a discount. We buy large quantities, which reduces the freight to up to 66% off UPS shipping costs and we pass along the savings to you. I'm a distributor for Northern Illinois. If you need price-lists, send me an e-mail or U2U. If I'm not the distributor in your area, I will make sure it reaches them. The best way to save, is to also save on reshipping. Thus, getting a local distributor is the best resource for you.
  3. I am in love with my new Sketchers Shape UPs. These shoes are awesome. The best way to explain them is that I feel like I have a floor mat attached to my shoes. Cushion, cushion, cushion. I love them.

  13. The new Bliss table will be available at the same cost for any size you require. So, you would be able to go up in size.
  14. Mary Beth, Have you thought about going with the new Bliss wheels?You can purchase them separately from the table. I have a ten-foot table on my Lenni. I rent both my Millie (14 ft) and Lenni (10 ft). So far, the Lenni has met the demand for quilt sizes since most of the quilts that come in are 96" and under: college-bound throws and kids quilts. I do have the Millie as a backup though for the bed-sized quilts. You need to think what sizes you want to be able to quilt.
