  1. Glad they are sending a cap out overnight. Lots of great advice to get out the grease, one of them should work.

  4. Carol, I like to ditch any of my customer quilts that might have issues if it is a custom quilting job. Obliviously you would not ditch an all over design, edge to edge or pantograph. Your goal is to contain any problem areas so they don't migrate into larger problems. When you ditch a quilt you also want to make sure the blocks, Sashings, borders etc, are straight. Good luck!

    If you do customer quilts down the road,you should let them know you have a cat who loves your quilting studio. You can and will have customers who do have allergies to cats. It is best to disclose pet Information. My business is listed as per free and smoke free, since I have allergies to both.
  6. I replaced mine a couple of years ago. I did pretty much what Angie did, except I used Carpet tape. This was recommended by Amy at APQS. Once I had the old leaders removed and any excess adhesive on the conduit pipe removed, then I placed my double sided carpet tape. I lightly pressed this on the pipe, just in case I need to straighten it out. Once the tape was on, then I lined up the canvas leaders on the carpet tape, just pressing lightly again until the leader on was on the length of the pipe. Then pressed down securely with my hands. Before you take off your old leaders, make sure you know which way your leaders roll on to the pipes. I marked the end of my pipes with blue painters tape and an arrow. It really is pretty easy to replace your old leaders, just take your time.
  7. I do not have any of the mats. I quilt in the basement and there is carpet with padding. However, after several hours, my back gets tired. I have tried crocs, and they are okay. But last winter I bought Skechers Shape-ups tennis shoes. They look goofy -- but they are wonderful. I can quilt all day while my DH is at work, without taking a break. These are my quilting shoes, I do not wear them out of the house. Then in June, I bought the Skechers Tone-ups sandals -- can't stand hot feet. These are great too.
  8. WOW! Tried the Bliss system at MQS on Wednesday. It is truely unbelievable. Moves like a dream. I will be putting this on my "must have" list.
