  1. Of course this machine has sold. LET me know ginnythequilter@gmail.com
  2. I recently quilted a quilt for a customer and quoted her a to low price for the work. At the end of the day I paid her .10 cents am hour to do this piece. I have taken a practice break and rethinking my fees thouroughly. Ginny
  3. I just gave my 201 A to my grandaughter. She fell in love with it while staying with during College. I wanted her to go to a good home. I used her for 37 years she was made in 1954. I bought her from a school. The quietest machine ever all gear driven wieght one ton. love d her Ginny
  4. I have had some health problems (hospital & rehab for 6 weeks) finding it very difficult to get back into any kind of sensable routine. Between Doctors appointments and rehab. I have some backlog and need to get my act together. I love the quilting and working with customers so much quiting just does not seem to be the answer. I need some quilters counsiling. Guess the way to do it is to just put one foot in front of another until I am where I want to be. An old friend in quilting told me once that making a quilt was like eating an elephant one bite at a time. If you all have any genious
  5. Clotilde carries a smoke odor remover that really works. I have used it for years. I realize this an expense, but well worth it. I put the piece in a bag and mist this solution into the bag. Leave overnight then remove let air for a while and voila. Wel Annie's (new name for Clotilde) does not carry this item. It is out there some where though Sorry ginny
  6. Libby you set such a high standard. Love this piece so much. Ginny
  7. We only undrstand our language. I have saught refuge on this site more than once. I do apreciate all of the answers and support this group gives me. Hope i can reciprocate as well. Ginny
  8. I cannot remember how many quilts I have had to add backing fabric to. Never thoaught to do with the long arm, I always stitched the seam by hand. It never did show, and when quilted was very sturdy. Thanks for the update.
  9. Never have a smooth ride. I get quilters blank all the time. I get a quilt on the machine and then think I should do my original idea differently. Then get stuck. I never see the things I think will look so bad in the end though. The last quilt I quilted thought all along it would be a disaster, It was wonderful. Thanks t all of you gained a lot of confidence in the last 10 years.. Ginny S
  10. Best Company APQS I have delt with my whole life period. Thanks APQS for 20 some years of help and service for my Ultimate II still love my machine. Ginny Snowden
  11. I have a healthy stash. The problem is I am old, It is duly noted that when I die the recipient of this bulk of fabric will need the large U Haul. Just love to go to my sewing room and dream of all the goodies as I sew. Ginny Snowden
  12. What a hoot! Thanks for the laugh of the season. Ginny Snowden
  13. Please pay attention to these people. I have advised so many friends and even given proof. they all nod in agreement then go out and buy some cheap model. You get what you pay for. some cheap models are great for a while, but then what. Ginny with espensive expereince.
  14. My machine is breaking thread within a line of stitching ------------- ---------- this is how it looks. Also breaking thread while stitching sometimes bobbin sometimes upper..Help please. I have an Ultimate II old. Working perfectly until now. I broke a needle a couple weeks ago on a guide ruler.
  15. Shannon, that looks good. You are going to be fine just know it. Bet you cannot wait to get back to quilting. Missed you Ginny
  16. Dear Rita, I used to work all the time making things for loved ones. I thought these quilted gifts would be apreciated. Well I was told ONCE I want curtains not a blanket for a wedding present, needless to say I do not give quilted gifts anymore unless in very special ocasions when asked. I am also confined a lot with Lupus disabilaty. We are a forgotten group. I feel most of the people I know do not understand how I feel (you cannot see pain) therefore do not know how to deal with it so it is not addressed. We are then kind of forgotten. My family does not even invite me to family functions
  17. I have a Bernina 450 embroidery machine. I do not know if I like it or not, had it for 3 years and will not work more than 12 hours before making an ungodly noise. I have taken it in for repair 4 times now the last time they told me i did not put the bobin case in right (make sure it snapped). I use my Pfaff in the interim. Love my Pfaff. I bought the Bernina thinking (wrong word) it was a good deal. Don't know if there are any good domestic machines out there now. Discouraged. Ginny
