    I just wanted to send a big thank you to everyone on this forum who takes the time to post answers to questions.  I'm guilty of not posting very often.  When I'm having issues with my Millie I know I can search this forum and get great answers. 
    I send out a challenge to everyone to try and post once a week and get our forum content back to where it used to be.  Anyone else accept the challenge?

    I only take my Featherweight!  Love that machine.  Makes a perfect stitch and is a work horse.  I also find the sound very soothing.  I bought a small compact roller case in Lowe's tool department that works great for this machine.

    I bought the titanium blades and I had the same blade in my cutter for 2 years!!!!!  That is with heavy use.  They are impossible to find at your local quilt shop but they can be ordered on line.

    FloridaMissy got a reaction from Quilta93 in Magnifier warning   
    I did the same thing with a large floor magnifier lamp.  I had near my favorite chair.  I had bumped it with the sweeper pushing it closer to the window.  I came home the next day and could smell something burning.  It smelled like and electrical fire.  I frantically searched all over the house and finally spotted the chair which had a quilt folded across the back of the chair.  It had burned through the multiple layers of this quilt and burned the chair bad enough it had to be thrown out.  I was lucky that all the fabric was fire retardant.

    Kathy, 
    I feel your anxiety and felt the same way when I first started.  My dealer gave me a quick 1 hour lesson and that was it.  Another dealer took pity on me and suggested I come and take a class with 2 teachers she had coming in.  They were great teachers but no way was I ready for any of those lessons.  I barely knew how to turn the machine on and I was terrified it was going to create me bodily harm! 
    At last all I can say is load everything you can old sheets, etc. and practice over and over and over.  Draw lines to represent boxes, sashing etc.  I asked friends to give me lap size quilt tops to practice on.  They new I would make mistakes and they were okay with that and it gave me practice pieces and they got free quilting.  I do quilt as a business now and have won some awards.  
    Take classes.  Watch videos and join blogs.  There are some great on line classes through places like Quilt University, Craftsy etc.  
    If you were near me I'd take you under my wing.  I hope you find a good quilting friend. 
    Ditch the double batting.  The wool bat will give you plenty of definition of your stitching.  Melissa

    Jeanne, 
    Hope your retirement will be official soon!  It is time to play and enjoy doing what you love the most.  You have earned the time to play.

    So sad to hear the news about Rita.  I'm so glad I had the opportunity to participate in her quilt.  I pray it brought her a sense of peace and love.  Praying for her family.
