  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. I have never had success using K-Tut, top or bottom. Gave up and gave the thread away.
  7. I don't use mine for quilting but do use it for UNquilting. LOL
  8. Join a local guild but don't be surprised if you get the cold shoulder from the resident quilter in the group. Volunteer to help with their projects. Once they see your work, people will migrate to you. Don't go after the other quilters' clientele but wait for the new members who will find you are available when the others are backed up. Word of mouth gets you lots of repeat customers.
  9. If you wanted some movement, you might look for a wind panto.

    If you are talking about a label; usually on the back in one of the corners
  11. Sorry guys, but Dawn told me to put the oil at the top of the assembly to eradicate a noise I was hearing. Normally I oil without the gyrations, but occasionally it needs to come to the top.
  12. I wish there was an easier access without taking off the needle plate to oil the top to the hook assembly. Has anyone figured out a way to modify the plate for this?
  13. The spa treatment was $1500 and I did a day trip up to Iowa to take it and came back a week later to pick her up. Other than the snow storm, it was smooth sailing.
  14. With fewer and fewer big shows, it makes it easier for the same quilts to enter around the country. One way to limit some of the repeats is to limit the age of the quilt. I sympathize with you about competing with the computerized quilting. Having gone to computer, I still see limitations as I look at some of the beautiful hand-guided designs. Trying to reproduce something that springs from the mind takes oodles of time to convince the computer, "this is what I want".
