  1. Just dropped in to say 'hey'. I am on FB, but I loved the original forum, or I guess it was original...it was the forum in and around 2004 or so. We had so much fun back then. There were some quacks here and there....what was the guy's name Shana who got mad when you told that hysterical joke about your car breaking down or running into another car....anyway it had to do with the guy in the other car being a midget. It was a very funny joke, but he took offense and sent me some terrible personal messages....the only time I thought Rod was going to visit a quilter besides me, lol. I forget to visit this forum.
  2. Bwahaha....I hear ya!!! I give up. Yes...Congratulations to Georgene...you are going to love your Millie.
  3. Oh my gosh....I was totally faithful to registering every day for the Millie. Then I think life got in the way. I don't know if I have registered every day
  4. My favorite machine ever is a vintage Singer 301. A little larger than a Featherweight, I think it is 17 pounds. It stiches way faster than the Featherweight. I sold 2 Featherweights and now have 5 301s.
  5. Several years ago, when MQS was here in Overland Park, KS, the APQS chat people decided to meet. I set up a table with a big sign. We all decided to wear APQS blue ribbons to identify ourselves. That was 11 years or so ago (wow, that is crazy), and we have some lifelong friendships because of it. I highly recommend getting together no matter which model you own.
  6. Wow!! We just never forget. Lol. I remember the panic in my mind wondering how the EMTs would get my body half way out of the attic/garage, and place me gently on the gerney. Lol. There is still a hole, and the sheetrock that I tried to put back. Oh boy....them were the days.
  7. Yes! Someone pointed out that I would have room for 2 machines.
  8. We have decided that it was time for a redo. We tore out a bar that was along 2 walls, about 15 feet long. Started ripping off paneling. Putting up sheet rock. We are moving equipment all the time, but we are getting there.
  9. I love this!! Only one math problem to get you in!! Thank you for that APQS!!
  10. Since my name is not David....then no I just have a feeling...like butterflies...or jitters from too much coffee, not sure which.
  11. Yes, I am happy they do this so often too. Sounds like you are ready for a Millie!!
  12. I will end up buying one too. Just gotta try
  13. Absolutely!!! If I win, you can come up anytime to play. We would have way too much fun.
  14. Did you all enter today? All I had to do was enter my email address. TA-DA!!
  15. Ugh!! You are in! Maybe it will be easier after the first time. Good luck to you too.
  16. https://www.apqs.com/shopping-tools/giveaway/millie/ You have to answer a question asking if you have entered already, then next, then fill out the form, go to the bottom and study the math problem
  17. When I scrolled to the bottom and read the math equation, I almost cried Then I took a deep breath and added 4 + 0
  18. You are so kind!! Yes, you are welcome to my page. I tell everyone, every now and then, "remember we are a no politics zone". I should say no drama too...but so far so good, lol. We are planning a retreat this summer in June. It will be in Nebraska. As a matter of fact, all of the participants are form the APQS chat over the years. Should be fun....and the good news is we have one opening left. If you are interested, PM me, I will tell you all about it.
  19. Yep, here we go again. Look at it this way. We won't need to exercise, because our little hearts are beating fast in anticipation
