    The size.  The M bobbin holds more thread than the L bobbin.

    Another beauty!  I hope that is going into a show.  It is meant to be drooled over.

    srichardson got a reaction from redhotmama in Turbo bobbin winder switch difficult to activate   
    I have mine plugged into a power strip.  I push the switch on the bobbin winder into the on position, hang onto the thread and then turn the power strip on.  It works like a charm.  I struggled with using the winder before I thought of the power strip.

    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!

    srichardson got a reaction from Jessica F. in Lawn fabric for backing - any suggestions?   
    Welcome to the forum.
    I haven't used a lawn fabric in quilts.  I think it might be a little on the lightweight side and may not hold up in the long term.  I wouldn't be too concerned about the needle ripping the fabric.  You can indeed use a smaller needle.  Try a sample and see what happens.

    I have been using a titanium blade too.  It may just be wishful thinking but the blade does seem sharper than a regular blade.  I bought my first one, which is still going strong at a quilt show about eighteen months ago and the second one at my local Joann's with a coupon.

    srichardson got a reaction from NHDeb in Comparing APQS Millie with Handi Quilter Infinity   
    I would check to see if the Handi Quilter allows you to make simple repairs and adjustments yourself, or if you have to ship it back to the factory.  On the APQS machines we can do many things ourselves.  Help is just a phone call away.  If it is necessary to ship the machine back to the factory it can become costly quickly.
    Good luck with your soon to be business.

    Bonnie Hunter wrote about these on her blog several months ago.  She uses them and is impressed with them.  At one point she had arranged a discount for her readers.  I don't know how long it was valid.  Try doing a search on her blog and see if you can find the info.

    I have used Sakura Micron #1 archival ink.  You will need to heat set the ink with an iron.  They are available on Amazon.

    Mary Beth,
    Are you referring to the spam do dad?  If you are did you add the numbers together?  I am so used to just typing what is shown that I didn't initially realize that I was supposed to add the numbers and not just type them!!  If I had read the instructions I would have done better.

    If you do a search under Panto Vision you will find several discussions that took place around the time this was introduced.  If I remember correctly, and I may not, someone with a Millie tested this for Innova and the conclusion was that it wouldn't work on an APQS machine at the time.

    Hi Lora,
    Has the Quilted Rose closed?  I can't remember the brands of thread that they carried as it has been ages since I was in there so I am not much use there.  As mentioned I believe that you are looking for baby poop green, a much mentioned colour in the past!  I have been looking through some of my color cards in case I have different cards to yours and came up with a few possibilities.
    Glide # 65825 - kind of olive colour, # 60616 greeny gold.
    Isacord #s 0352, 0232 & 0442
    Superior So Fine # 449, Fantastico 2078 & 2079.  I have a vague recollection of getting an e-mail from Superior that they were discontinuing a thread.  It may have been Fantastic, not sure.
    I know that you said that you couldn't find the right colour in Omni but if you have the thread card what about #s 3063 and 3064?  Superior put out printed charts in addition to the actual thread ones and the colours are often way off in the printed version IMHO.
    The only company that I can think of that begins with A is Amman and they make several different threads.
    Hope that you either find the thread you have been using or a good substitute.
    Good luck.
    Correction:  Sorry the Superior thread is Magnifico, not Fantastico!
