  1. The babies are adorable ....the quilt is beautiful ...where do I find a similar pattern...I would love to make an angel quilt like that...it is beautiful...
  2. Hi ladies, I did not have a chance to change the fuse until tonight and a few seconds after changing it it blew again...same thing happened to the second fuse and I am now back at square one because I only bought a pack of 2 fuses... Bought at the source...maybe I bought the wrong type.... This is what I bought... Miniature Fuses 250 VAC/VCA On the back of the package... Interrupting current: 100A 250AC 10,000 A 125VAC TYPE NUMBER: MFG 5.2x20mm
  3. I read over your notes...sounds like it will be a piece of cake.... I will go out in the morning....wonder if Walmart has this kind of stuff.....my kids would probably tell you that I too blow a fuse now and again...so I will buy an extra one for that...lol.... Dawn, thanks so much...I certainly didn't expect to get such quick help on a Sat. evening....even though I can't fix it tonight it is is relief knowing what is wrong....and a thank you to you too Vicky and Merry Jo... and since I am here I have to tell you how happy I am quilting away...since I got the machine last June I have done 5
  4. Boy you guys are fast .....I have a wicked headache... But i decided to try again and nothing.. Came up and voila...the help...how great it is to have you wonderful friends...I would have never thought about a fuse....I tried to look in the manual but I didn't find anything describing Lucey's ailments... Dawn, yes, I am in Toronto...I hope I can find the fuse...tomorrow I will go out to buy one...that is hopefully going to fix it....I was so hoping to quilt tonight...
  5. I hope someone can help...I was quilting along and Lucey was in SR mode...I was marking something and accidentally bumped the machine and it moved across stitching 4 or 5 big stitches ...ended up in needle down...when I went to use white button for needle up the needle would not move...have to move the needle up manually with wheel....needle is not broken...so nothing is stuck..but neither the white or green stop start button works..SR chirp is there... I was tired so I packed it in...I turned it off and back on but nothing... What do I try...???
  6. Congrats Lin ....I got my Lucey last June and I am in love.....I just finished a couple of hours of quilting.... I am working on my second freehand quilt....and I will post it when I am done...I am seeing an improvement with every one...
  7. I have an ipad and watch utube,videos all the time?? Never had a problem...recently I joined QNNTV and some of those videos won't play...they weren't much help at resolving the issue, except to tell me to download a different browser, which didn't help ...
  8. I am 5 ft tall....I took almost all the packages to the basement by myself...and for the heavy ones with the metal bars I took them down one at a time...assembled it on my own mad only had a little help with setting the machine on the table...excellent instructions...
  9. I have the Sizzix cutter and really love it....have strip dies, squares, triangles,etc and appliqué dies ,...it take Go dies too so that is why I liked it...if you don't want the big studio the Sizzix may be enough..,bigger and sturdier than the Go....I am taking it to the guild tomorrow to cut jelly rolls and charm packs we are selling at our next meeting...
  10. Congrats on the great start... Did you create a website? Where have you advertised your new business?
  11. In 2008 I was off work for a few weeks for health reasons...I did a lot of googling on my laptop while resting.... I sew drapery and Roman blinds and have boxes of gorgeous silk scraps, which I could never bring myself to throw away...I researched quilting to see if one could quilt with silk...I cut some squares up and sewed them together...of course I did not stabilize or back it so the squares did fray a lot...I put together a table runner and fell in love with patchwork...I can't believe it but i have to say the table runner is still only a top and I have not finished it....almost at the sa
  12. This was new to me....I am sure that many of you old pros have seen this...hope this link works
  13. Dawn, Your explanation was better than any I read in books....have you thought about writing a book? I have done 2 panto graphs only and it wasn't bad at all...I really like how you explained about the 3 lines being the seam lines on the quilt...I am visual and this seared it into my brain... Thanks, tella
  14. Congrats! You will love the featherweight... It looks like it is in great condition....I have 7 of these babies...from 1947 - 1958 and 1 singer 222 from England... I love them all.....they all have names too...lol....they are a slightly different...scroll face, striated, etc...I keep thinking I should sell some of them but can't bring myself to do it... You may already know this but there is a Singer site where you can print out the certificate for you FW...you jus put in the serial number and it will print out the birthday etc...kind of cute...
  15. Sylvia Can you show us a pic of hour overhead lighting...how you modified it..
  16. Dawn, Thanks for the clarification... Dah, I am so slow with this kind of stuff... I will take,a look at it on my computer...did I tell you I am loving my Luci....one more question ...in SR mode, when I stop, the needle will usually take another stitch or two...is this normal or should I make an adjustment...
  17. Wow! Wow! Wow! This is amazing! I cant stop staring at it...beautiful....how long have you been playing on your Longarm....?
  18. I bought my machine in June...last night I tried to watch the video that came with the machine...title "Lenni\Luci" and it would not work... there were two DVD's an the one that says "getting started with your new APQS machine" worked fine and I watched the whole thing....new DVD player out of the box... Has anyone else had this happen...Maybe I got a bad copy...
  19. I was wondering the same thing...please let us know how to report...
  20. This is beautiful...I loved your blog, too....as a newbie you give me a lot of inspiration...
