    tables turned?

    Now, not to get anyone's dander up or even up on their hind legs.... a slightly different perspective I am a 'new er' long armer. I previously did it all on short arm or even quilt as you go. From that perspective, I was simply uneducated on this 'idea' of the quilter. I did not have any work that I had quilted by someone else, but am around most piecers in the sewing circles I am in. I have not yet long armed for someone else yet either. I do totally see the LA point of view - but I must confess - this is a newer understanding for me. I simply did not even think about it. So I would say - perhaps it is an educational moment for those piecers. They may be simply thinking of the design or whatever and really they do not understand / comprehend what skill goes into the quilting portion of the project. Jus' sayin' maybe education is the answer... :cool:

    MQS 2012 - Who's Going???

    Me Me Me!! I just registered! I wish I had registered a few weeks ago when I was beginning to plan what I wanted to take. several classes I wanted are now sold out and I am wait listed. boo I would love to share a full week's space at the Sheraton. I do NOT have a room booked yet and - I would dare say, the block is full, but will try. Anyone... anyone.... I did stay at Hyatt Place for a couple of nights last year - super great! I just want to walk over to the classrooms instead of drive. I am exploring pretty much any and all options! I will be driving from Boulder Colorado and staying all week long! Yippee Skippee!
  3. Thank you all for your interest! This machine is now sold to a happy new embroiderer!

  8. It has less than 20 hours on it and I think it is a 5.0 and able to do the software upgrade to 5.5
  9. Give a gift to yourself this year! This machine has less than 20 hours of regular sewing ( piecing) and embroidery unit even less! Pfaff is well known for their dual feed system! No bulkly walking foot! Just engage dual feed and you 'are off to the races!' The 4D software is open, but unused, includes dongle! and is UNREGISTERED! In all original boxes. $400 The Grand Hoop is also UNOPENED, includes 3 designs $200 Get it all for only $3800 + shipping ( guessing around $75 - or local pick up FREE!) I will consider a 'Lay Away' situation and can take Pay Pal, so a cc is an ok form of payment! Pictures available!!!!
  10. Machine is freshly back from servicing - update 5.5 installed - including the adjustment to take up lever. I personally did not have trouble with the take up lever, but I know many people did - so I had them make that adjustment as well.

    THANK YOU!!! for the link to Tabbers Tempations - Trademarks I have often wondered about the 'real' legality of making something from a pattern. I have been critisized often for 'using someone's design' to make something. After all - isn't that why it is for sale? ( a pattern or design etc.) especially with fabric. I mean for heaven's sake, why would anyone simply buy fabric to just sit?? Well perhaps for 'insulation' purposes...LOL Lord knows, I live in Colorado and simply have to have A LOT of 'insulation' in my sewing room
