  1. I went back thru the posts and could only find one or two selling a non APQS machine anyway. Doesn't seem to be a big problem.
  2. I know what you are saying, that the original post was for people selling only. No one is criticizing Linda. I have seen Linda post answers to many many questions with lots of great info. But some of the comments after hers were sort of disconcerting. Comments like our machine is the best, why should we answer questions about their machines, we should send them away, wish everyone could be as happy as we are, able to create. These comments bothered me. It is like if you do not have an APQS you are not doing it right. Well, I would imagine that every company thinks their machine is the
  3. Zora, it works the other way around, too. If people on the APQS forum "send people away," it looks bad for APQS. They would want everyone to respect their brand, as well as welcome others who may not know much about their brand yet. If you feel unwelcome, it does not make you want to run out and buy a machine from APQS, even tho you realize it is not the company posting. You would not even pursue the brand. I would not criticize an APQS machine on this forum, but I don't think it is beneficial in any way to make people who have a different brand feel like they are "not part of the club,"
  4. Part of advertising is getting your name out there and hosting forums. Even tho I do not own an APQS at this time, I know much more about them now since belonging to this forum, and I have learned that they are a great company with a great product. Isn't that what APQS would want? I get emails daily, and postings on my facebook page from multiple companies. They don't worry about whether I want to hear from them day after day after day. They just want to keep reminding me of their product. Hosting a forum is one way for a company to keep their name and product in front of your face. I
  5. Oh boy, I have been posting questions, and I have a Tiara, (not for sale) and now I feel a bit uncomfortable. I bought a Tiara because I found one used that I could afford and in a state I could drive to and get it. That does not mean I do not appreciate the quality of an APQS. I would definitely consider one some day if I was ever looking for a new machine, because of all the great things I have learned here. That benefits APQS. I thought this forum was for anyone to learn and share about quilting. I did not even think about the brand issue. It never occurred to me that the brand spons
  6. Love those soft ocean colors, so very pretty. Nice stitching!!
  7. OMG, that is absolutely beautiful! I wish I had room in my little home for things like that. What a find and a treasure that is! I got a little treasure 2 days ago; my daughter in law went to a yard sale and someone sold her her entire stamping collection of rubber and acrylic stamps for 10 bucks. Since I like to make cards, she snatched it up for me. Three bags of stamps! Woohoo!
  8. Oh wow, that will be a beautiful room for Freddie with all that natural light! And right in the center of the household so you can keep an eye on things! Perfect! Congratulations, that is so wonderful!
  9. Wow, I hope no one gets hurt and that they can stop the fire before it consumes anyone's house. I hate to see our beautiful forests burn, it takes so long for them to recover! And the poor wildlife has to flee and hopefully get out! Be safe!
  10. Shirley, that sounds like a great idea, giving your extra things to people who need them. The few garage sales I have had have not been worth the work. I hardly made any money. You will feel so good when it is all gone! I was really going at it, but am still in too much pain to do anything. I am sooo frustrated.
  11. Rita, I am glad you are able to be back doing what you love!!
  12. It is easier for me to SID on my domestic machine because I can do straighter lines with the feed dogs. Although it is difficult to do with a large quilt. As a newbie, I have not resolved this issue. I am not too good yet with a ruler, even doing straight lines. Also, when you SID on a pieced quilt, do you do EVERY ditch?
  13. Just darling! I love those animals from Embrodery Library and have purchased a few myself. This quilt will be treasured!!
