  1. This is an old post but I wanted to explain my process making rag quilts using my longarm. I quilt the entire yardage just like a quilt. The top, inner flannel and back. Then I cut my pieces that the blocks will be. Then I run them thru my die cutter. So the blocks are already quilted BEFORE I sew my die cut blocks together.
  2. My big machine has a big bobbin, I've never had any tension issues.
  3. I talked to Micheal today and everything is solved! He talked me through how to adjust the holder to be able to drop the stylus down, stayed with me while I followed each step and BAM! We're back in business now ) I'm a fan of Circle Lord for sure!!
  4. Hey Tonilyn, I think I better get this Spiral learning curve down pat before I try anything else lol! I do have a set of the Baptist Fan boards from R&S but the boards are not nice and slick like the CL ones. How you compared the 2? Pros and cons? Other than price hahaha!
  5. What machine do I have in my dreams or in my reality?? Lol!
  6. Bonnie and Nigel, thank you so much for your help! This R&S stylus is supposed to fit the CL but there is a little wobble. And it jumps out of the grooves too. I'll try hammering the white thing down so I can use my real CL stylus. If I can't get it to move down then I'll have to buy a wood board to go under the CL boards to raise them up. I'll watch for Micheals response too and of course I will keep yall posted! Thank you sew much, Amie
  7. I'm having a couple issues that I humbly ask...beg for your help! I got the Spirals and the BF boards today. Would have preferred IQ but I have to eat lol. Sooo...I got the boards. Okay. The "fills" on the Spirals. You have to backtrack "a bit" according to the directions. How much? I don't like the way the double thread looks. Do I backtrack 2 stitches or 2 inches? The stylus is about 1/4" too short. So I'm using the stylus from R&S that is supposed to fit the CL. And it does except it's so tall that it gets hung up on my Red Snappers! I'm about to cuss! And I keep forgetting to rai
  8. Yes, you can find a longarm with SR for under 4k. I bought mine from a lady HERE on this forum for 4k, that was 3 years ago and it still going strong. I have a 26" throat, SR, 14' frame, Circle Lord and a gazillion accessories. Amie
  9. Hey Teresa, I just wanted say how sorry I am about all the problems with your new machine. I'm not sure if your machine came with a warrantee but if not, here is the name and number of my longarm guy- Joe Reid 615-294-3724, he and I both live just outside Nashville. He works on all makes and models of longarms. He is very good and affordable, maybe he can help. (((Hugs))) Amie, Murfreesboro TN
  10. I realize this Hemingworth topic is old but I almost ordered some tonight,then thought i'd just check in here to see if it had been discussed. WALA! Here is was!! Thinking I'm not ordering any. This forum saves the day again! Amie Gammill Classic
  11. I bought a bolt, it is much nicer than Pellon but not as nice as W&N BUT it only $99 and I primarily use Hobbs 80/20 so the Soft and Crafty will be to go under wool batt or summer quilts.Amie
  12. I am just happy that I want to scream out loud! Buying sight unseen can be a scary thing but not here. First, I bought my long arm here, from a nice lady upgrading to a Milli. I really had to trust her as I drove 9 hours each way to get it. Made a new friend and perfect transaction! Second, I bought 14' zippers. Another perfect experience! Now, I bought Circle Lord stuff. Yet another perfectly perfect transaction!!!!! If anyone is on the fence about buying from a stranger,this is THE place!! Honest people here,do not be afraid :-) GO FOR IT! Amie :-)
  13. Stick with your price,its a great deal for someone! I live in Nashville not far from you. Call TVQA,Tennessee Valley Quilters Association,they can send out the info on your setup. Also,my guild is MCQG in Nashville can send it out too.On second thought, I can do that. If you Google TVQA, it will have all the guilds in Middle Ten. and the email addys and numbers.I feel very sure a buyer will pop out the woodwork! Amie Tarpley
  14. Okie dokie,may have to call and see if he can make one for my machine. Amie :-)
  15. I would rather have a used APQS,Gammill,A1 or Nolting than a Tin Lizzy. They don't have a great rep and don't hold their value,hard to find buyers too. Maybe you could trade it, Nolting does take a trade in,most companies don't. I wanted a Milli but found a nice used 14 yo Gammill instead and I feel blessed.Sometimes things just fall into place that are meant to be.APQS next time maybe.
  16. I think everyone is attached to their rulers as nobody has responded lololol! Oh well, I probably would too :-) Amie
  17. I want to try out Lisa's Quilters Groove rulers for curved and straight crosshatching. I have one Deloa's rulers and love it but would like very much to try out Lisa's rulers too. If you have one you may want to part with one,please let me know :-) Amie
  18. I would like to buy these if they fit the Gammill classic, please call me 615-663-8993 or email me at rustytater5150@comcast.net Thank you! Amie
  19. Bonnie, thank you for explaining and your tips on panto quilting.as I do mostly custom(wild and freeee!), switching my brain to panto mode always makes me pause. Your post helps me too :-). Amie
  20. I thought any brand could be sold here. I found and bought my Gammill on this forum,was a great deal. Amie
  21. Okay I ordering me some Metro,thanks for the info. Amie
