  1. Wow! They made the right choice for the quilt maker and quilter! What a team! Beautiful!
  2. Mercedes, I have it and don't use it very often, but when I do need it for tiny stippling, I am VERY glad I do!
  3. Hey Jim! That was a great idea! I'm going to file that one away for future reference!
  4. It was very cool to have dinner with these special quilting sisters and meet them in person! Thank you Sue for making reservations and the invitation for getting us together. I throughly enjoyed myself!
  5. Sue, my message box was full, sorry about that, I have emptied it now and sent you a note. Shar
  6. I will be attending the show and vender mall, I'm not taking classes, if a dinner comes together, I will try to make it! Not sure which day I'll be going, it's all up in the air for me at this point. Hope I can make a few connections, next year I hope to take some classes and be there longer.
  7. Road 2 CA was fantastic! I saw the most amazing quilts, so many of them well beyond my modest skill level, and I enjoyed the vender mall. The quilts were outstanding, I believe this was the best show I have had the pleasure of attending. I did not take classes, not because I don't need them, especially after seeing the talent displayed at this show, I really don't know why I don't like taking classes. I finally gave up on taking pictures of the quilts and just enjoyed them. My husband, all round great guy, didn't tap his toes once waiting for me, he enjoyed the show as well and toted my p
  8. I ran into those opportunities for frogging quite a bit when I began custom quilting. I still do for that matter. I also learned bad words could be made to come out of my mouth, frustration and tears seemed to be my constant companion. I questioned my goals, why was I doing this to myself etc.etc. I called a well known local quilter and asked for a lunch date to discuss what I was doing wrong all the time. At the time I thought this quilter walked on water, she told me she has slip ups or opportunities for artistic license all the time and she cured herself by applying the 24 hour rule.
  9. Blessings and love coming your way! Ok at least one hug too!
  10. Jim, I have quilt glide and would not be without it! Yes, the needle keeps moving, but it moves at a much slower rate than if you are in simple manual mode. It allows you just enough time to engage the brain for the next direction without the panic of having to move faster than you are comfortable. The best thing is the smoothness, a perfect blend of stitch regulation and manual mode. Heidi, I have both and bliss and glide, you will extend your quilting years by investing in both, especially with the type of quilting you do, they allow longer sessions without the arm, and neck fatigue.
