  1. I don't know what kind of machine you are using but I used to have that same problem with my mid-arm machine. My suggestion for the future is to pick a panto that is not as wide, giving you more flexibility. Also, your batting could be contributing to the problem. If you are using a thick batting you will loose arm space faster. Try using a low loft batting.
  2. This forum used to be a lot better BF (before Facebook). I learned so-o-o much from this forum when I started. I don't trust FB and I'll leave it at that. I miss the old gang.
  3. Check to make sure your bobbin thread is not caught in the bobbin case handle ( the part you grab to take out the bobbin). Thread the bobbin and snap it into the hook without using the handle. I know I have all the thingies mislabeled but I hope you get my gist.
  4. I still find it amusing that folks think stitch in the ditch is an easy and cheap way to get their quilt quilted.
  5. Start with the easy changes: Right size needle for thread? New needle and is it lined up right? check threaded right Clean bobbin area and bobbin lastly Re-time
  6. A question regarding your $$ expectations. Will your quilting be your only income when you retire, or simply your vice money (fabric, thread, quilting classes, you get my drift)? I upgraded to my Millie when I retired, paid it off, and added the computer system and have now paid that off. Having said all that, when I started looking to seriously quilt, I joined the LQG and one of the queen bees did everything she and her buddies could do to stall my business. I stayed busy but slow at first. Today I long for those days. I don't have time to quilt for myself. Since that time, five more quilters for others have joined the guild. I am not complaining, I am as "busy as I want to bee".
  7. I use pieces of black quarter-inch elastic tied around the top roller to align the edges, center, and midpoints as I roll the quilt forward. The tight elastic stays secure but is flexible enough that I can move up or down the roll to match the current quilt I am working on.
  8. Sorry, I don't have any suggestions. I never could get King Tut to play nice with my Millie. Gave it all away.
  9. I didn't like using curtain rods either as I felt they were scratching my poles. My hubby took two pieces of PVC pipe and notched both ends so they fit down over the pipes and roll along when I advance the quilt. If I knew how to post pictures, I would show you but sadly, never have picked up that skill.
  10. I've been using SuperBobs for the past 12 years in almost most cases. Occasionally, I wind a bobbin if I can't find a color I need in my bobbin supply. I have used the Monopoly clear once when Superior sent out samples and never bought any since. Although this was several years ago, I was not impressed. Too many issues getting the tension right. I also use the Magna-Glide bobbins when using Glide on top. Very nice tension but runs out quickly. I keep several bobbins in a labeled case for each type of thread. Makes it a lot quicker getting to the right tension each time I change threads. As far as colors, I use SuperBob "silver" when I need something that blends well with almost everything if I don't have the exact color. I went crazy when I first started and bought a lot of thread. My current goal is to use it up.
  11. The only problem would be getting the poles for the frame up the stairs and around any corners if the house is designed that way. Had to take mine through the window
  12. I have never learned how to post photos. Been on this site for 12 years and never took the time. My quilting doesn't rate a pic.
  13. Strap with a hunk of painters tape a small knitting needle on top with a cork on the end to hold the thread. Works great.
  14. I have never had success using K-Tut, top or bottom. Gave up and gave the thread away.
