  1. Nita, you may have better luck starting a new post asking for the items you want, rather than tagging on to a 6 year old thread.
  2. After you try the good suggestions above, I recommend calling APQS service if the problem persists.
  3. I have not used a lot of Hobbs batting, but I know Warm Company battings have "right" and "wrong" sides. Loading the "wrong" side up definitely makes pokies on the back of the quilt. Do any Hobbs fans know if those battings have right and wrong sides?
  4. What a thoughtful gift from you and your wife! In addition to on-line information, T-shirt Quilts Made Easy is a great book resource. I found it to be full of great information, even though I did not really use any of the specific quilt designs in the book. Nancy's Notions is just one of the on-line sources for this book: https://www.nancysnotions.com/t-shirt-quilts-made-easy-book.html or you may find it at your local quilt shop. Good luck, and be sure to post pictures of your finished project!
  5. Wilmaloo, if you go to your original post, you should be able to edit the heading to add "SOLD" to it.
  6. Wow, Dell, that's beautiful! You and Sharon make a great - and productive - team.
  7. I have a Freedom (now called Freddie), and have never wished I had a thread cutter. Although I am sure there must be people who really like it, I have seen a number of posts where owners have asked how to remove the thread cutter. I usually don't bury my threads, but I still prefer to bring the bobbin to the top and trim it there. For me, the thread cutter adds no value at all. There have been times I wished I had the vertical channel lock, but I use a squeeze clamp on my carriage to achieve the same result. Not as convenient, and possibly not quite as accurate (although it's pretty d

    Lenni problem.

    WOW, that's a fantastic quilt! Sorry I don't have an answer for your thread issue, but I definitely wanted to let you know how much I love your work. Hopefully, someone else on the Forum will be able to help.
  9. Here's my latest finish. California king, for us. So glad I get to keep it! Stopped at Renee's House of Quilting, in Williamsburg, MI, yesterday, to show Renee, since she helped me to choose the fabrics, and she took this picture. A special thanks to Kathy Schwartz (Tamarack Shack) for the border quilting idea and tutorial. It was perfect! So Fine! top and bottom thread, Quilter's Dream wool batting.
  10. Thanks, Barb. I did see the instructions, I just didn't expect "interchangeable" feet to require an adjustment of that magnitude.
  11. Tried my new "true 1/4" ruler foot" today, and I was surprised at how high the bottom of the foot is. When I compared it to my original foot, it is 1/8" shorter! This definitely explains why my rulers can slide underneath the "ruler" foot when the needle is up. Has anyone else had the same issue? TIA
  12. Jeff, congratulations on selling your machine! If you edit your original post to include SOLD at the beginning of the title, you will eliminate a lot of future inquiries.
