  1. I have a used set of machine zippers (3 zippers) for a 14 foot table for sale. $27.00 plus shipping.
  2. Fabric advance for sure. I still don't have the lift but I would not want to give up my fabric advance.
  3. I use Sharon Schamber's (don't think that is spelled correctly) method. I have a strip of fabric about the length of my quilting space and about 8" wide with a dowel rod on one side. I pin the fabric to my backing and use my clamps on the other side with the dowel rod. Just quilt that area, roll up the quilt and repin. It doesn't take much extra time. Does this make sense to you?
  4. Does the George have a fuse? It could be a blown fuse.
  5. When we set up my first milli, my husband thought the motor advance went on the other side. Needless to say, we spent several hours trying to make it fit before we called it impossible to work. Called the office the next morning and set a picture. They had us put it on the other end of the table and within a few minutes it was on. So, I don't think it would fit on the table without some changes made. That was in 2007 so things could have changed since then.
  6. I thought I had been wasting a lot of WD40 because I use it every time I get ready to quilt on my machine. I think I will just continue to do so.
  7. I might have been a monster to you but it is a beauty to me. I love the colors.
  8. I looked at the new foot at a show this week. I think it would really help and I think I will order one.
  9. Then we all need a copy of the technique. Please post it here.
  10. At one time I saw a posting for removing these lines and I think it included soaking it in buttermilk. I can't remember what else but maybe someone else will remember the solution and post it.
  11. I won't hold my breath. I am probably the most unlucky person around.
  12. I use several of those plastic 3 drawer storage containers from Walmart. I store thread and fabric in them.
  13. I wish I had seen this earlier. I finished mine (started it 2 years ago) and couldn't decide how to quilt it. I finally just put a panto on it and got it finished. I made mine king size. Yours looks great.
  14. Kath, I don't sequence all of the quilt. I do one row at a time and clip off the edges as I go. I just keep moving down the rows one at a time. So when IQ asks choose the row you want to quilt, I pick the next row. I hope I am making sense to you. I know we all do things differently. You might have a different update loaded too. I went back to an older one because I was having some problems with an update so it could be different now. (I haven't done the latest one either).
  15. After you advance and find the point of the last row you quilted, you hit sew quilt. The row you just finished will be highlighted. You need to touch undo or it will go to the row you just finished. After you hit undo, select the next row and it will stitch out the row 4. At least I think this is what you are asking. You are selecting the rows one at a time, correct?
  16. If you have an embroidery machine, Hatched in Africa has some doll outfits that you can do in the hoop. I made the swim suit and have some other patterns to stitch out.
  17. Oh, I can relate. I have 6 from the same lady that are ALL like that. One has only 3 final borders. When I called her twice and tried to get her to fix it, she said it was her design and just quilt it as is. Really???????? Seams are from 1/8 inch to 3/4 inch.
  18. I am going with something swirly then. Thanks for the suggestions.
  19. Any quilting ideas for a homespun quilt made of primitive looking flannel?
  20. I am selling my 2007 milli to upgrade to the new machine. I bought this machine in Nov of 2007. It comes with a 14 foot table, edgerider wheels, turbo winder, and fabric advance. Price is $11,500 and I am located in Southern IL. SOLD
  21. I like the look of your site. The word "the" is spelled incorrectly in question 1 of the faq section if you want to correct it.
