  1. I have been busy making 3 layer pleated masks for a clinic here and my Elna Quilters pro was complaining a bit about thickness and I love that machine for piecing and hated the idea of throwing off the timing. I remembered a friend at quilt group mentioning that she had bought a used Husqvarna Viking Mega Quilter from her Aunts friend but it was more than she needed and loved her regular machine so wanted to sell it. Anyways I bought it and wow what a fantastic machine for piecing, the stitches are so beautiful and there is no hesitation at all going through 10 layers of fabric when adding the casings! I didn’t buy it for quilting as I have my Millie for that. I had been looking at Juki’s as I don’t need bells and whistles for piecing. These machines seem to have been made to last very long term!
  2. Your quilting looks fantastic! I would charge my freehand custom rate for that not an edge to edge rate. Check out longarm quilters in your area and charge accordingly. Don’t undercut them!
  3. We flipped my wheels last night....life is once again gliding smoothly along!
  4. I have checked the table and it’s totally level and rails are straight as well. The rails and wheels are squeaky clean. Though I have always used rubbing alcohol on the rails only in desperation I also cleaned the wheels and there was a ton of black oxidation. My man is a mechanic and brought me cleaner and polisher for the rails and I was amazed at how much more came off I have M&M wheels...I replaced mine when they first came out....I had a defective batch so they were replaced with another set. It’s been suggested that I try flipping the wheels to see if that helps. We will try that today... I am trying to decide if it’s maybe time to invest the bliss system.
  5. Recently my machine has been more difficult to move. The areas on the outside of the table move smoothly but I have to to really us my muscle in the most used work space. Any suggestions?
  6. That is beautiful! Your wonderful customer is in my prayers!
  7. I received my quilta light today and it was easy to install and definitely improved my lighting...so far I really like it.
  8. Yes that is the light that I am referring to. I have the older Millennium with the fluorescent bulb which really restricts my visibility. I have also looked into the LED light system as well. I was just wondering if anyone had tried or had an opinion about this new quilta light?
  9. Thank you for your response Cagey. I have wondered about the LED system. I have looked at it as well.
  10. I am thinking of replacing my fluorescent lightwith the new quilta light. Has anyone bought and used one on their Millie?
  11. We put the replacement wheels on last night only to discover one of the new wheels was defective, I am hopeful a replacement will be sent soon. We put one of the old ones back on so I can still quilt and wow what a difference, I almost need to practice again my machine floats again as it should. The change was so gradual I guess I had gotten used to muscling through my jobs!
  12. I beleive that it's recommended not to clean the M&M wheels with alcohol only the rails. The alcohol was recommended for the older wheels though.
  13. If there are future quilts I would pay close attention to how her borders are laying and if they are full offer to fix them. I often give my older customers extra services.
  14. Depending on your thread source they may replace a bad cone, one of the reasons I love dealing with Superior is that a couple of times it has been the thread and they have rushed me a replacement nocharge!
