  1. I live in McKinney Texas. I would also love to come to your presentation. I owned a Millennium for about a year while I lived in Waco.
  2. Thanks so much for the great information. I plan to get one. I am eager to start my next tshirt quilt.
  3. LinneaMarie, Which Pellon do you use? I am working on one now and would like to do more. Thanks.
  4. Does the heat press have steam? Don't you have to use steam heat to bond the interfacing? I am very interested and would like to purchase one.
  5. Thanks for all of the input. I have just ordered Quilters Dream Poly. I did more reading of the product on their website. I believe it is what my friend would like. I look forward to working with this batting. Again, thanks so much.
  6. I am making a tshirt quilt for a friend's daughter. The quilt will need to be washed in a front loader washing machine. Has anyone washed a quilt using Pellon Legacy Natural Blend 80/20 batting? Is there another batting you would recommend? I will be quilting it on my DSM. She would like the quilt to be very soft so I plan to quilt no closer together that 3 inches. I really appreciate your input.
  7. I have sewn many clothes for my granddaughters' AG dolls with the McCalls M6137, M5554, M6370. Also with Butterick 3875 and see&sew B5414. I use newborn onsies to make tshirts by cutting right above the leg opening and serging a new hem. Then I can embroider matching tshirts using a smaller design on the onsie. Also you can google how to make headbands. You are going to have so much fun.
  8. I sold my Millie a couple of years ago. We offered free delivery within 100 miles. But we did not offer to set it up. That was what attracted our buyers. She was such a precious lady.
  9. Urban Elements has one called circles and one called bubbles.
  10. Asking $200. Purchased the Viking Scandinavia 200 in 2006 for $600. Since then, I have purchased a Bernina. The machine is in excellent condition. I don't think that it even has 80 hours worth of sewing time on it. Also has the quilting walking foot with it. Here is a link for further info on the machine: http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/ko/598_1097.htm If interested, send me a U2U message. Thanks.
  11. So creative and so beautiful. Thanks for sharing. I will look up the pattern.
  12. The tree skirt is absolutely lovely. What is the name of the pattern for the Christmas tree skirt? I really like this pattern. I am doing a Christmas tree skirt using Christmas fabrics for my son and daughter-in-law. I would like to use this pattern.
