    Bonnie: Anne Bright has a pattern in her book Simply Continuous Friends called Ladies in Red.   It has heels, purses and hats in a continuous panto about 9 1/2 " wide.

    Marsha Nichols got a reaction from GrandmaLKB in New Generation Millie   
    OK, I am totally frustrated.  I waited forever to purchase my Millie ( just got it last May) and now they have the New Generation version.  Can the 2012 Millie be updated to these new specs? Everything they are now offering is exactly what I need but $$$$ are an issue. AGGGGHHHHHHH

    For the APQS owners especially, this forum is invaluable. Where else can we ask a question about an issue with our machines and hear from someone else who had the same or similar issue and is willing to share their solution. It is wonderful that we have the ear of APQS in the form of Dawn Cavanaugh. She is always ready to give us the manufactures solution. How many times has she sent spec sheets from APQS to help a customer? She will follow up to make sure the problem is resolved. I agree, not being able to talk face to face can sometimes lead to misunderstandings. Sometimes we take offense where none was intended. As has been said, I love the excitement and growth I see in the newbies. I surely appreciate the expertise from those of you who have been at this a long time. You have no obligation to share your knowledge with this forum. I believe that willingness to share comes from the heart. I for one am a grateful recipient of your advice. This is a good place to land when you have had a trying quilting day. Thanks to all of you my friends. Chris

    I wasn't going to post on this topic, but it seems there is a lot of discontent here ????   I don't always reply to a post or always GET a reply to my posts.  Sometimes we just need to vent and we feel better.   I love reading the new ideas, seeing the pictures and sharing information.   I have learned so much from so many.   I'm also sad and bit taken aback by the term ..."princesses".   I've never met any of you and might not ever meet you, but we all share a common thread with our quilting - whether we are just starting out or have been at it for a number of years. I value the input from the "veterans" and also love to read the excitement of a Newbie just starting out when learning a new design or getting their first longarm.  People are very busy and have a lot of things going on in our lives other than this forum !   I know for myself, I get busy or sidetracked and sometimes just skim over topics and sometimes it might be days before I even get on the forum at all.  I've learned over these last 2 weeks and dealing with 3 funerals that life is way too short to nit pik and grumble.  More important things take priority.    Quilting for me is a hobby I love and I hope to keep it that way until I can no longer do it.

    Marsha Nichols got a reaction from RitaR in Fons and Porter TV series with Heidi Kaisand   
    Fons and Porter had Heidi Kaisand as a guest on Sat, Dec. 1, 2012 program. I do not know if this is a repeat program. Heidi was presenting longarm quilting tips on how to identify and solve tension problems, starting and stopping, solving border problems, batting, and other techniques. Heidi addressed many of the problems that I am having with longarm quilting. It would be wonderful if Heidi made a video of just her discussing and demonstrating all these issues. It was difficult to see the tension problems from the TV show due to lighting and camera angle. Many times Heidi was interrupted in the middle of a sentence. The content was excellent and greatly appreciated. Please consider a tutorial with just Heidi and her tips.
    Thank you

    Marsha Nichols got a reaction from RoseCity Quilter in sock Monkey quilt   
    I am playing with adding photos. Hopefully this works. This quilt is for my daughter Wendy. I am attaching the monkey with snaps so when she washes the quilt she can easily take off the monkey.
