  1. "Separate professional quilters" ... I've often thought that quilt shows should employ the golf standard .... Have a Masters category ... Those wonderful Master quilters would then have their own category or show
  2. thanks to all. Forum member has graciously lent me her copy.
  3. quote from "Farris Bueller's Day Off" ........ "Anyone? anyone?" Thanks for looking! Sylvia
  4. I use SF101, Shape-Flex fusible 100% cotton, purchased at Joann's for stabilizing the backs of t-shirts.
  5. I am in search of the Undeniably Crazy Quilt book by Buggy Barn. If you have a copy I could buy that would be great. If you have a copy that I can borrow that would also be great. Thanks in advance! Sylvia
  6. Prayers and heartfelt sympathy to Roland and his family. I was blessed to be able to contribute to her quilt. May Roland find peace and strength in her beautiful quilt.
  7. Betsy, you are my hero! You have gone above and beyond the call of duty... if there was a Quilting Medal of Honor, you'd get! What a fabulous job you have done ... I'm speechless ... ...
  8. you know, it's been said that the FBI/CIA etc., can tell a lot about a person just looking at their checkbook ... mine is Publix grocery stores and fabric shops ... having said that, if they would just combine the two I'd be in Heaven!!! One-stop shopping! Groceries, fabric ... groceries, fabric ...
  9. I was beginning to think I was the only one out here who uses zippers! I love them. I sit and "listen" to a tv program while pinning the backing to the zippers. I float my tops so don't use that third zipper. Haven't really had a lot of problem with getting stuck by a pin ... knock on wood ... love being able to remove quilt when I need to work on a "rush" job.
  10. I'm 5"3.5" on a good day and I have a 2009 Millennium and absolutely love it. On carpeted floor... 14' table. I have never ever regretted this decision. I have no difficulty doing whatever I want to do with this machine. I'm doing a lot of custom right now ... and have no difficulty with the large throat space. In fact, glad to have it so I can start and finish most blocks within the space without having to move the quilt back and forth. Go for the Millie!
  11. we had this problem a while back and we turned the 2 back carriage wheels OVER ... drag eliminated ... which means the wheels are going but we still have some life left in them. This was per APQS suggestion, btw.
  12. I use the two brands a lot. For those quilts that want/need a little pizazz or shot of color, I use the Magna-Glide. For those quilts that call for a more traditional look, I use the Superior SoFine. I don't think i'd give up either one. My machine loves both and that's what clinches the deal for me. No tension hassles with either one.
  13. early on I decided I wanted to spend $$$$ on a cutting table ... i was hating cutting fabric at not-the-right height and a good cutting table was my priority. So Mr. Santa brought me one several Christmas's ago. So cutting table was main priority and my sewing table is just a 6-7 foot long basic table with my two Featherweights on it. I have plenty of room and I use every bit of it. And since I'm sitting, it seems the height is OK for me. One of these days, though, Mr. Dancing Bear will surprize me with a REAL sewing table! Hope it is BIG with plenty of room on top for all my 'stuff' ... ha! Bear ... stuff ... but I am not a stuffy bear! I dance, I twirl, I waltz, I glide ... and I have a wonderful time with my New Toy Max! Take a bow ... and exit.
