  6. Wow.. I live in Iowa, and we have had our share of tornado\'s and floods this year. What a picture..
  7. I quilt embroidered quilts all the time.. if they are small embroideries just stictch around them.. .if they are big.. you may want to quilt through them.. as they will not hold the quilt together at all. Good luck Barb Wetzel

  20. Good work Shana... I am currently working for United Way of Central Iowa. Helping with the 2007 Campaign. I love United Way and the work that they do. I sent a quilt to the Denison, Iowa UPS Center and they are autioning it off with the proceeds all going to United Way. Each year I have sent a quilt up for their use. Keep up the good work. Barb
  21. My Millinium was skipping stiches and of course it was when I needed to get a quilt done. Jim Caldenburg stopped by and adjusted the timing, and cleaned the machine a little and now it works like a charm. Sure wish I knew how to do the repairs... Barb
  22. Hey Sue, another question on Compu Quilter.... My stitiches are skipping.. and I get long running stiches in my compu quilter designs. I looked in the book, and it referred to calling a tech to come and re set the machine. I put a call into Jim Calendburg, but haven't heard anything back. All I know is that I am getting tired of taking the stiches out... It needs to be fixed. Barb Wetzel
  23. Teresa.. I think it would a personal choice... Good luck.. Barb
