  1. I have been away for way too long. Is it too late to jump on board for this for Rita?
  2. I haven't been on here in what seems like forever. So it's like new to me again anyway. Thanks for the heads up, Dawn, and thanks for getting me back on with my new information.

    Downsizing

    Hi, Hawaii Barbara!!! I was just thinking about you a few days ago when I wanted to start listening to some Christmas music. You sent me the Ukelele (?) Christmas CD several years ago when we were in a miniature quilt swap! I have a Lenni on a 10 foot table that works great for smaller quilts. The head is lighter weight and easy to move the head for quilting. It just doesn't have all the bells and whistles some of the other machines have or as big of a throat space. Stitching quality is up to usual APQS standards and less maintenance with lesser bells and whistles. I'm sure you'll get a better idea when you get to Road to California and be able to try the machines first hand. I've been MIA from this forum for quite awhile, too, and I'm ready to get back in the loop! Hope to see you on here!
  4. I, too, used to go to MQS every year and looked forward to it every time until it moved to Wichita. I attend the first year at Wichita and have never gone back. I was so disappointed. Of course the last few years it was at Kansas City, it had been dwindling down with not as many vendors and didn't seem like nearly as many quilts. MQS was where I got to see new long arm gadgets and accessories and got to purchase my long arm thread in bulk at great prices. Now I just order online and pay extra shipping charges. There used to be excitement in the air and you definitely spent more than a day going through the whole thing. At Wichita I found myself saying, "Is this it?" I do miss seeing the people that I've met at these big shows, but there's always forums or FB that seems just easier (and cheaper) to be able to keep in contact. To be honest, my friend and I just attended a "local" quilt show (an hour and a half away) and was disappointed this year (which we never were in the past). In the past, it was elbow to elbow trying to get down the aisles of the vendors and you were always in competition with someone else trying to get a closeup view of the quilts on display. This year was nothing like that. Of course they had also raised the price of the admission to get in. Three ladies behind me went up to pay and threw a fit of the admission price and turned around and walked away without going in. There were other disappointing factors to me/us that I just won't mention. I'm just wondering if it's all due to the cost of everything nowadays.
  5. Oh my goodness gracious! That is one gorgeous quilt! Congratulations on your winnings and best of luck on the next leg of the quilt's journey!!
  6. Speachless! Stunning! A beautiful piece of art!
  7. There's enough quilters in this area with bigger tables than mine that I just won't take on a quilt any larger than my frame can handle. I'm not willing to take on that headache. I applaud those of you brave enough to tackle this challenge.
  8. I'm so sorry you had to go through this and that it ended up in court. I feel very fortunate in having good paying customers up until yesterday. I won't go into details, but let's just say I won't be doing any more work on her quilt until pre-payment is made in good faith.
  9. Breathtakingly beautiful! By all means, toot that horn! Congratulations...very deserving!
  10. Baby quilts were in line for today. Quilted dog paws on the first one, and I tried a new-to-me effect of ribbon meander on the 2nd one. I'm loving the effect and texture.
  11. This is just adorable, Libby! Your McTavishing looks perfect!
  12. I get so much of my inspiration from this forum. Thanks for commenting!
  13. Thanks. I often ask myself the same question. That's one thing I'm working on in 2013...scheduling customer quilts. Sigh.
