  1. Moderator - please delete this post. No longer up for swap! Thank you!
  2. No Longer up for Swap! Thanks for looking!! I have a 2009 Freedom SR 14 foot table with motorized feed. I want to swap for a 10 foot table with motorized feed. Must be able to fit my Freedom on it. I'm in Canon City, Colorado near Pueblo/Colorado Springs. Prefer no shipping but will meet you to swap within Colorado. No longer taking customer quilts and sharing large room with husband and his hobby! haha Serious interests only.
  3. Hurray! and God Bless Dawn!! APQS is the best!! My machine is up and running with no damage!! Even though it was her getting off work time, she walked us through the whole process to get it working again. Thank you all for your suggestions. I'm am one happy quilter in Colorado!!
  4. 2009 Freedom with SR: I did a big no-no that is written right in the book! I had the needle running while warming up the machine. I was using a piece of batting to wipe oil off of the bobbin area plate near the bobbin assemble The bobbin area caught threads of the batting it and wrapped it around the bobbin assembly. The machine immediately stopped and blew the fuse. I changed the fuse no problem. I also removed as much of the batting thread as I could. Machine is back on, however, now it only sits and hums. Needle bar doesn't go up and down at all. What do I do now? I have a call into Dawn but heard that they are at a show this week. Any advise is welcome!!
  5. Beautiful and I love the little extra swirl you give the feathers. Stops them from being boring! lol
  6. Very interesting. I have a ruler similar to that. I'll try and see if I can do the same thing even though I have the BF boards too. Thanks for posting!
  7. You might be a Longarmer when: You make your family and friends schedule an appointment to see you! Your son says: "Wow, you could sew new leather seats for me on that" and you immediately send him to his room!! All the other posts are so funny and SO true!
  8. Same here. I only use them on my own quilts and they always was out...even the dark markers. I use the Crayola Washable Markers.
  9. Thanks for posting all the information on the Suspa lifts. I've regretted not getting the lifts when I first bought my Freedom. The more I age the more my back gives me trouble and I wish I'd had them put on. Now, I'll have a new item for my Christmas wish list!
  10. Sounds like a wonderful machine. Someone out there will love it too. Good Luck!
  11. Grammie Tammie is alive and well! This year she and her family opened a wonderful quilt shop up in the mountains south of Colorado Springs. Westcliffe is a charming little town nestled in a valley an surrounded by beautiful mountains. It takes me an hour to drive up there but her shop is well worth it. She also has a website: GrammieTammie.com. I find that I don't post as much as I used to but I check in everyday. I hear from Bonnie Botts once in a while on FB too. I love the First Quilt and Beginners topic ideas. Though I've been longarming for about 5 years I still learn from this site and "re-learn" lots of things too.
  12. Any ideas of how good I have to be for Santa to bring me one? lol I really haven't been that good this year!
  13. What an awesome idea! Since family members are clamoring for quilts, I can make these as presents to give until their quilts are done! Thanks for bringing this idea forward!
