    Gator got a reaction from InesR in Pricing T-shirt qjuilts   
    I agree with Gail, $25/$30 per t-shirt as a minimum.  Size of the blocks will depend on the writing/pictures on the shirt.  12-14 inch is a good size to work with.

    Gator got a reaction from NHDeb in Batting storage bar   
    APQS made a batting bar for the older tables at one time but I no longer see it as an available item.  I thought this forum members PVC idea was great.  It looks easy to make, thrifty and moveable.  The bars attached to your frame can be tricky to load bolts of batting on it.  You can go to the forum search and put in "batting bar", you will see many ideas.

    Gator got a reaction from dbams in How to Shorten a table   
    Have her advertise here and on the APQS FB Group, she might be able to trade tables with someone wanting a longer one.  Post the length of the table and if it is blissed or not (probably not).  Location of the table too.   The table  trades seem to happen fairly often.

    Gator got a reaction from iquiltit in FORUMS OR FACEBOOK CURIOUS   
    I'm just a curious person.  I was wondering  if you prefer forums or facebook groups?  I'm a forum gal.  I love the forum because you can guess how long a person has been involved with a product or skill.  I like how topics are divided into categories and doing a search for topics are fairly easy.  I just feel cozier with the forum group than facebook, I'm not sure if that's the correct verbiage.  I'm not against Facebook groups in fact I belong to a bunch.   I just wonder how long a person has been using a product before they start giving advice, etc.   I've seen bullies on both but not so much on forums now.  Forums and Facebook Groups seem like two different environments to me.  Wondering minds are curious.

    What a wonderful story.  The only friends some of us have are the ones here.  I suffer from major depression and PTSD and many that I have met here gave  me words of encouragement when needed .  I feel a little sad that many are now on the Facebook site, which doesn't seem as personal as here.

    Gator got a reaction from LisaC in Does basting an entire quilt before quilting it cause any problems?   
    I baste the top, sides and bottom as I go.  I float all my quilts.  If I'm doing custom, I will do like quiltmonkey and use corsage pins to baste around the area I'm working.   Hand quilters will have us longarmers baste their quilts to save them the time of pin basting.

    If you are looking for an excellent longarm machine, APQS is the one.  If you  are looking for support for the APQS you'll never find a more professionally knowledgeable, fun, committed, patient APQS representative then Connie Keller.  Her classes are excellent.  When you rent a machine she, Anne and Jed provide the support and direction you need to learn and feel confident.   It is obvious that the three of them all love their work and the people they serve with passion and caring.  Your search for quality in the machine and support is over.   Connie helped me find the perfect machine for me.  She and Jed set it up in my home and provided ongoing support.  I can't thank you enough, Ms. Connie!!  Anne!! And Jed!!
