  1. Yikes! That did that trick. Thank you so much Vickie. I must have dyslexia. I looked it up in the manual and I still got it wrong!
  2. I was quilting along fine and thought I should change the needle. After I changed the needle, the needle stays stuck in the down position. It seems as if its hitting something that is preventing it from coming back up. I thought I did not insert the needle properly so I took it out and inserted again. I'm still having the same problem. What could be causing this? Pauline Lally
  3. Thanks for all of your comments. The set-up seems pretty comprehensive and the cost is only $200 more to take the classes. I figure if I get more interesting in sight seeing, I won't lose too much. All the machines and supplies are provided. It seems like a win-win situation. The EQ7 company is pretty reputable too. Anyway, hubby is excited because there's a photography class for him too!
  4. Hello Everyone: I'm considering taking an Alaskan quilting cruise next year and was wondering if anyone who has taken a quilting cruise can share their experiences. The one I'm considering is run by Deb Roberts' Tours and sponsored by Electric Quilt Company. Thanks in advance.
  5. Hi Barb: Have you taken a class from an IQ Dealer? I found that when I first had the Lenni (that I think you have now!) I could not quilt for anything. It took six months of playing around with it. Once I took a hands-on class, some things seemed to click. The second hands-on made things click even more. I know for a fact that if you wanted to travel down to MA the MA dealer, Mad About Quilts would give you a class at a very reasonable price. Life is too short to be frustrated with a machine that will not co-operate.
  6. Just my two cents. I NEVER have problems with tension. I don't know what I'm doing differently, but I see many posts from people with problems. I suspect the majority of people don't have problems for whatever reasons!

  11. Has anyone had any luck in selling Circle Lord curvy boards? I have 5 of them sized to fit a Millie. I really enjoyed them before I got an IQ, but they're taking up space right now. If you sold them, how did you package to ship? Thanks.
  12. This is a very interesting topic to me. I personally do not quilt as a business; I tell everyone that quilting is a very expensive hobby. I have a Blissed, IQ'd Millie. Maybe its a cop-out, but I tell everyone that I quilt for love. I've pieced and quilted about 20 quilts to-date ranging from baby size to king size. I have a list of about 25 more that I'd like to make for my family and close friends (I am the oldest of seven children). There is always a baby on the way or a wedding taking place. If I make mistakes on these quilts, I don't feel so bad. Maybe after I've completed 50 quilts, I'll feel "good enough" to quilt for a price. Oftentimes I browse some on-line quilting boards and I get inspirations for future quilts. I was on ETSY the other day and was surprised to find quilts in the thousands of dollars for sale. I admire all of you that quilt as a profession. Sometimes, I'm afraid that if I start quilting for "money" I'll lose the passion I have for quilting. Thanks for reading,
  13. Hi Vicki: Just a note to let you know that your suggestions worked perfectly. My husband did all the work for me! The machine does not move at all. Thanks so much.
  14. I'm having some trouble keeping the casters installed on my Millie from moving. There is a lever to lock the wheel, however, there seems to be a swivel between the wheel and the bottom of the frame. The swivel is causing the machine to move when I quilt. Has anyone encountered this problem? What did you do about it?
  15. I like the the swirls too. I was wondering if any of you try to match the baptist fans so that the bottom of the arcs on row two run over the top of the arcs of the previous row (row one).
  16. Oh sure. I did not mean to keep it a secret. I'm the owner of a new blissed Millie. What a joy to own
