  1. Since you are only going to use it around the holidays, have you considered a Cameo cutter? It doesn't use dies, you use your computer to set up the designs. It has drawbacks. Only something less than 12 by 24 inches and only one layer at a time. It really depends on what type of shapes you plan to use. If you want to cut strips, it doesn't work well due to length restraints. I have the Go, Go Big, and Studio cutters and love each for what it does well. I cut my strips with the Studio model. Other shapes depend on what die I have. I have adapters so I can use some of my Go dies on the Studio. You might want to actually try each of the options before buying. I don't know anything about the Sizzix. My niece does a lot of scrapbooking and loves her Cameo. She was shocked when I said I wanted to cut fabric with mine.
  2. Very good information to know. I have had some experience with the ghost marks. I will be more circumspect when using the pens in the future.
  3. Well worth the time to read it. I lauaghed all the way through it. Gloria is truely one of us.
  4. While making an adjustment on JJ (my Milli) I was glancing through my repair manual. There was a section on mag collar adjustment. It was noted that if the hook finger is not stopping in the correct position this could cause the bobbin thread to not pull up. Have you checked this out? My repair manual is from my maintenance class with Amy.
  5. I have decided that I don't have a stash, I have a collection of fine textiles.
  6. I have just ordered Quilt Path for my Milli. I would appreciate any hints you can give me on its use plus any ideas you have to help me learn the system. Pamela
  7. The quilt is outstanding. Both the quilting and the applique are fantastic.
  8. Chris, I look forward to hearing from you. I will send you a PM with my contact information. Pamela
  9. Chris, Would you consider someone from Chillicothe for your group? There are several of us in the Chillicothe area and I know many (me for one!) would like to join a group such as you are planning. Pamela
  10. I have a long mat that I purchased by the yard at the local Lowe's several years ago. It was a lot cheaper than others I have seen. It works for me. Pamela
  11. Debbie, What was the content of the Legacy with all the lint? Pamela
  12. I have a milli and love it. I think everyone on this forum loves their machine of any brand. I concur with those that say test drive. I admit I did very little research but I did test drive and look at the features. Even though I told the Gammill people that I was going to buy that day (I was at a major quilt show), they didn't take me seriously and I didn't like the stitch quality or the feel on the machine I tried. The APQS people were very polite, encouraging, and didn't talk trash about other machine brands. Everyone has their own preferences and requirements so try all the brands and models before making your choice. Whatever you buy your are still a part of the forum family. Pamela
  13. Jeanne, That is not being braggy. If it were me, everyone would know as I would be up on the roof shouting that I was published. Don\'t forget to add the publishing part to your resume. Congrats. Pamela
