    Gamache got a reaction from quilterkp in Is Longarming Still a Viable Biz Option   
    I agree there is work available.  I am a hobby quilter, but I am often asked if I will quilt for someone.  I do a few now and then, but I do not want a business.  Make your work visible and you can keep busy.

    Gamache got a reaction from Charliequilter in Innova 12' Table ($2000) PRICE REDUCED TO $1700   
    I am selling my 12' Innova table - known as the ABM Pro-Frame. This is a heavy duty aluminum profile frame that can accommodate a longarm machine with an 18" - 21" throat space. The 12' table gives you width of 11' 3" of actual quilting space, so you can easily quilt a large king size quilt. It has the 4th pole below the take up roller so the quilt remains level. The legs allow you to adjust the height of the table and level the table. The poles are 2" powder coated steel, and the top pole has a gas assist lifting system which allows you to access the batting. You can upgrade the table with features such as a powerlift system, powerfeed, and a light bar. Comes with leaders, carriage and side clamps.
    I originally purchased this table to replace the Grace frame that my Babylock Jewel came on. I have since sold the Jewel with the Grace frame, so I no longer need this table. It would be a be a wonderful upgrade for anyone looking for a solid and quality frame. It is easy to make any adjustments to fit another machine because of the way it is designed, and ABM / Innova is a wonderful company to work with - In fact, they were the only company that would sell me just a frame.
    I have included a few pictures of the Babylock Jewel on it, but the machine is not included in the sale.
    Located in Yakima, WA. Buyer must pay shipping.

    If you store them in buckets, clothes pins clipped to the top with the design name written on it can help organize them.

    I like the quilting designs you chose. It gives it great texture without competing with the piecing or over quilting it. She has to love what you did!

    Gamache got a reaction from Quilting Grammy in Ruffle on Christmas Tree Skirt - Need Suggestions   
    If it's not quilted all the way to the edge, you could sew the ruffle with right sides together to the top, open it out and hand sew the backing to the ruffle. If it is quilted all the way to the edge, you can sew the ruffle to the quilted tree skirt with a strip of bias tape on top of the ruffle, then open it out and hand stitch the bias tape to the backing - covering the raw seam edge.
    One last option - if you have a serger, serge the ruffle to the quilted top, open it out and top stitch through the serged seam.
    Your tree skirt is pretty. :-)

    I didn't know, so you're not alone. Thanks! Maybe I don't have a spool like that, but when I do.... I'll be ready.

    Gamache got a reaction from Oma in Fabric Swap after the first of the year (update guidelines)

    How this is set up will affect the outcome.
    If for every one who wants to be in 2 slots, you count each slot as a person to buy for, then some people will get 2 of some fabrics - one square in each of their 2 slots. Or for example - 30 people and 50 slots and you send a square for each slot,( in this case 50) then 20 people will get 2 of some fabrics and the other 10 people will get one of that fabric - (providing of course that all 50 squares are of the same fabric - in reference to Oma's post above. ) But if 2 slots is seen as 2 groups (A & B ) and you buy a fabric for each person in group A and a different fabric for each person in group B, then each group will have different fabrics and no one will get duplicates of anything. I hope I am making sense - or set me straight if I am confused...... It wouldn't be the first time!

    Oma,
    No worries if you send different ones. As long as you send one for each swapper, everyone gets one from you and who cares if they are the same or different?! And who will even know?
    That's just my opinion though. :-)

    In the Invisifil line, is there a go-to-color that you recommend or do you use a variety of the colors they offer.

    Love to see the up-coming quilters. My grand daughter made a skirt for her 18" doll after Christmas, and promptly told her Dad, "Sewing really isn't that hard". Her Mom loves to design and sew, so I see a future quilter in her too. So much fun to be able to share our loves with them.
