  1. Have you checked for burrs? Also check to see if the thread guides have worn down into a groove. It they have try turning them upside down so the thread is running through a different part of the guide. If you can work out where on the thread path the shredding occurs it will give you an idea which area to check. Good luck.
  2. Urban Elementz now sell the R&S design boards. The couple that owned Circle Lord have retired.
  3. If you contact APQS and give them the serial number on your machine they will probably be able to help.
  4. I seem to remember reading the IQ are helping Compuquilter owners. You might try contacting them and see if they can offer any suggestions. Good luck.
  5. Good luck to you Dawn. Thank you for all you have done over the years and for sharing your wisdom. We will miss you.
  6. Have you tried a bigger needle? I am not familiar with the top thread that you are using but it looks in your pictures as though it is probably about a 40wt so a larger needle may help. Even though you have put a new needle in there are sometimes bad needles in a batch.
  7. I have this one for my Millie I am having difficulty getting the link to post. Go to the website and check under machine accessories. Be aware that this site can sometimes be very slow to fill orders.
  8. I bought one of these to replace my old iron. I have been pleased with it. It produces lots of steam and doesn't leak. It does not have an auto off function so once it has heated up it stays hot ready for use.
  9. The size. The M bobbin holds more thread than the L bobbin.
  10. Try using a thread net over the cone. Also soak a small piece of batting in mineral oil and place the batting in the thread guide above the cone. Hope that this will help.
  11. Another beauty! I hope that is going into a show. It is meant to be drooled over.
  12. Amazing quilting. Congratulations on being juried into the show.
  13. HI joy, This what I found, there is an e-mail at the bottom of the page. I haven't heard anything of Michael recently either. I hope that all is well with him.
  14. Ron and Sharon, the couple that owned R & S retired and sold their business to Urban Elementz if I remember correctly. The majority of the boards that R & S sold were designs from Urban Elementz designers so it is logical that they acquired the business.
  15. Both quilts are amazing. This one reminds me of one of the beautiful floor designs that can be seen in older historic buildings.
  16. Congratulations on your new Lenni and welcome to the forum. Have fun!
  17. I agree, great colours and wonderful quilting too!
  18. I use the channel locks quite a bit. The thread cutter not as much as I usually bury my threads. Happy shopping and welcome to the forum!
