  1. 2012 stationary, lightly used, well cared for, sit-down quilting machine, timed to 3.5, allowing use of a smaller needle. Large table has 4 generously sized drawers plus front and side extensions to support large quilts, eliminating drag as they are maneuvered under the needle. Without table: $3,700 - does not include shipping With table: $4,000 - local (Houston, TX area) pick up only Features: · 20" throat space · adjustable motor speed · needle up/down positioner button · tension control knob · LED lighting · Deluxe 60 x 24 table; expands to 77 x 40 with leaf extensions Accessories: · hopping foot · extra bobbin case · 15 bobbins · 8 Groz-Beckert needles · 1 dozen pre-wound bobbins · thread stand · user manual (DVD & printed) · Training DVD · Maintenance DVD · 9 cones 50-weight Superior So Fine! polyester thread – assorted colors · Simplicity bobbin winder Machine is from a smoke and pet free home. Note: There is a ~2" hairline scratch in the middle of the plexiglass insert; does not affect machine performance. Shipping options: George without the table: Seller will disassemble unit from the table and re-pack into original shipping box with original foam cushions. Buyer pays shipping - dependent on zip code and amount of insurance desired. George with the table: The table is substantial (weighs a lot!) so it would be most economical if it could be sold locally (Houston, TX and surrounding area) together with George to avoid the cost of shipping altogether. Buyer would have to pick up. No returns.
  2. Hi Gma, I live in Houston and have a 2012 George with a table if you're still interested.

  3. When my mom died two years ago I inherited her wool sweaters, and began an internet search to learn everything possible about working with this stretchy material and how to turn it into a patchwork quilt. The result is an almost-done sweater quilt (we became marching band parents and then moved to another state, disrupting its completion), but I got pretty far with it and blogged about it in the process, starting with this post: https://chocolatecakequiltdesigns.wordpress.com/2013/08/26/sweater-quilt-explained/ Micajah is correct: this is not a project for everyone. It has the potential to be frustrating; but for me, I thoroughly enjoyed learning about something different and figuring out what would work best in order to give me the result I was looking for. The best part was feeling like I was with my mom when I was working with her sweaters. I wish you good luck should you decide to tackle one. Terri
  4. Hi Vicky, Click on the link below to see how I accomplish pantographs (or overall quilting designs) on some of my quilts. It's involved, but so worth it in the end! http://chocolatecakequiltdesigns.wordpress.com/2013/01/16/15/ Good luck, Terri
