  1. Oh Gosh Heidi! My prayers are with you and the family. What beautiful babies!
  2. Joan, MQX has never been to Iowa as far as I know. Their shows have been in Portland, Oregon, Manchester New Hampshire and Springfield Il . I have attended several of the shows in each city. In my humble opinion, they put on the best machine quilters show. We were in Manchester this spring and I attended 6 classes. The owners of the show are always on the show floor making sure everything is going as it should. There is always a good slate of recognized teachers with drawing classes ( which I love to take) for a very reasonable amount. Hands on classes are not for me, and too expensive. They also have very interesting special exhibits. I think this organization really strives to put on a quality show. Their shows are Manchester, New Hampshire in the spring and Springfield, Illinois in the fall
  3. Thank goodness my grandchildren seem understand the importance of their quilts from Grandma. They are 6,4 and 2. I think their mom had a lot to do with them understanding how cool it is to get something handmade. Dylan (6) was playing the other day with some binder clips and he explained that these were "quilt aliens" and the eat quilt fabric! Only the words were pronounce quilt " aweons" and quilt "fabwic". Just cracked me up. I hope I can remember the sound of his sweet little boy voice till the day I die.
  4. Either one, boys, girls, one of each, I wish your family lively healthy babies! However, my husband's brother has 6 granddaughters and another on the way! Girl power!.
  5. I'm going to MQX. Can't wait to see it in person. Just stunning!
  6. I use it on show quilts and love it! Runs beautifully and looks great when you have to do some dense quilting. You will be amazed how it looks.
  7. What a wonderful addition to the family! Congratulations to all!
  8. This is how I straighten out Quilters Dream Request or Select. I have several customers who will not use any other batting so I had to find a way straighten those batings. Like Linda S. I roll the quilt sandwich but leave it a little slack. Then I gently tug the batting and the top together to keep the batting from "cupping," Then I tighten the sandwich. The top becomes the stabilizer for the batting. This has saved my sanity and I no longer get those dang cups in the batting. Hopefully this is the answer you were looking for.
  9. Six of us are driving from Dayton, Ohio. 3 Longarm quilters and 3 domestic quilters. I have a full slate of classes as usual LOL. I love to learn from all the new teachers because you never know what awesome idea they will bring to class! This is our second trip to MQX east. We have attended in Portland, Illinois and New Hampshire. Janet Lee and Mary put on a professional show! I can't say enough about what a great experience it is. There are many classes to satisfy all skill level of quilters. An added bonus is overall the comfortable feeling throughout the entire show. Everyone is so NICE! Y'all should come!
  10. Here is a very good article. Just google "insure quilts" and you will find more. If I do not have an appraisal on a quilt of my own that I ship to a show, I do not waste my money on buying insurance. That being said, I pray a lot! LOL http://www.quiltweek.com/insuring-quilt-might-enough/
  11. Wow! All I can say is I am so impressed with the outcome. Yea for you Vicki! And god bless a reasonable customer!
  12. You All crack me up.! Better make it 1 out of 10 as I am now signing up!
  13. Wow Teresa! I just looked at that video and that foot is really cool. I want one for our machines. APQS Pleezzee!
  14. If they would just keep track of the ruler, scissors, marker, that I JUST HAD IN MY HAND I would be a happy camper! Dang Faries
