  1. Hola Linda, Yo también tengo el IQ desde hace 3 años y medio y estoy encantada. Me han comentado de una máquina a la venta aquí en Europa con una mesa de 12 pies. La verdad es que me interesaría más una con una mesa de 10 pies. A ver qué tal se da. Comprar una segunda máquina es toda una aventura pero hemos visto que estamos perdiendo clientes porque tenemos una larga lista de espera. Así que la solución es trabajar mi marido y yo cada uno con una máquina y así poder sacar mucho más trabajo. Espero verte la próxima vez que vaya a Estados Unidos. Me encantó conocerte en MQX. Un abrazo, Cris
  2. I have been thinking about you for quite some time. I lost your business card when I returned to Spain last year. I would like to keep in touch. Best wishes
  3. Hello, I don't speak any german at all but might be interested in buying that machine? Is still for sale? Thanks Cristina
  4. Hello, I have had a Millenium for 5 years and now I am interested in purchasing a used machine in Europe since I am located in Spain and would need a machine with European voltage. Does anyone know someone who is willing to sell their APQS machine? Thank you and have a good day

  7. Pamela, I don't seem to find your post in my message board. Here is a list of quilt shops in Madrid: In this one they speak English, actually, they are APQS dealers for Spain. Ask for Marisa or Alex Apart from the one above, I would strongly recommend you these 2. However, bear in mind 2 things. 1st, they don't speak English, and secondly, compared to the quilt shops in the US, these shops are very small, and the worst of all, expect to pay 15 euros per yard, in dollars can be 20. DECHADO Principe de Vergara, 256 28016 MADRID Phone: 914579871 CAÑAMAZO C/ Fernandez de los Rios, 66 28015 Madrid T/ 915449772 Best wishes, Cris
  8. Thanks a lot for the suggestions. I found something intermmediate on the internet. Someone who quilted hers with a Bernina and all she did was SID the squares of the blocks. I am going to offer that option to the client. Jill, thanks for the suggestion. It sounds good to me but I don´t she will accept it. Spanish piecers are veeeeeeeeeeery traditional and most of them don't want to hear anything about pantographs or E2E. Best wishes,
  9. Hello, I have just received an email this morning from a new customers. She has heard from me and she needs me to quilt a "Dear Jane" quilt for her. My custom quilting price is 44 USD (aproximately) by square yard. There is just another long arm quilter in Spain who does custom quilting (well, there are 2 more but their quilting is very basic yet) and I know that she charges 62 USD per square yard. However, she charges a lot more for special jobs like applique and things like that. Having said this, I don´t know what to charge since I know that this is going to be a very time consuming job. My first thought has been to say no to this job. Any advice? Thanks a lot, Cristy
  10. Dear Bonnie, I will follow your advice. I will call her tomorrow morning. Best wishes
  11. Bonnie, I absolutely agree with you. I didn't see it until the customer sent the pictures of it. As I said, she is delighted but I don´t. I travelled to Barcelona city last week and delivered it to her in person. She put the bias on the weekend and has posted pictures on her blog. The unquilted area in the corners are screaming for more quilting and now I cannot ask for that quilt back. There are people who have even told her to present it in the Spanish National contest. I hope she doesn´t. I would be ashamed if some profressionals knew who quilted it. Sandra, the client went to a course on that pattern to a Spanish patchwork shop. The name of the pattern is "Pitagoras" and although I looked almos everywhere on the internet, I don´t seem to be able to find anything about it. I wonder if anyone in this forum can help. Thank you very much again for all the encouragement
  12. Dear Cristina, You can be more than proud to have a daughter like her. Congratulations to both of you. Best wishes
  13. I finished the quilt last week and although the customer is delighted, I am not. Everything is ok, more or less except the cream area that surrounds the stars. I tried to do a freehand design from Kim Stotsemberger but I am not happy with the unconsistency. Thank you very much for all your help

  15. I am here, I am here but although I am Spanish, I have no idea of what to do with it. By the way, why Spanish?
