  1. Occasionally when I am quilting along, my millie suddenly races for a second or two making tiny stitches. It scares me to death as I am usually using a ruler and have my hands down near the hopping foot. I tried blowing out the carbon in the area around the motor under the hood, I've tried using a humidifier incase it is static electricity build up, but don't know what else I can do... Has anyone else had this issue and what did you do to fix it? It has me nervous while I am quilting....
  2. Yes it may be the #8 screw that needs adjustment.
  3. I had mine on the 2nd floor in a big room over the garage, never a problem and the view was better than it is now from the basement!
  4. I wish I could find one that doesn't leak water, the only way to do that is to not use the steam in your iron and keep it dry...I have an oliso also that I love but it started to leak water after about 6 months, so I don't think one exists that does not leak...I've tried them all...but on the other hand if you don't use water it is a good iron.
  5. I am so sorry for the loss of this special quilt friend....what a wonderful friendship you must have had.
  6. Sometimes you just need a little break....you will know when you are excited to get back to quilting....
  7. I use glide alot but pretty much stick with my 4.0 needle, works fine.
  8. I still have some longarm quilting books and Quilters Unlimited/Machine Quilting Magazines I am willing to part with...cleaning out my room and needing the space...pm me if interested...I am including pics below and shipping is extra.... I am thinking $40.00 for the group of 4 books and $20.00 for each group of magazines....from pet free, smoke free home. Update-Top two books Start with a Blank Slate and Helen's Mix and Match are both sold...
  9. Shawna, Is it called Heartland by P3? If so, I have that pattern and have made it and would be willing to part with it...it can either be made with a house in the center as a medallion or 12 appliqued blocks....
