  1. Anyone have a turbo bobbin winder that they aren’t needing? I’m selling my Bernina that I had used to wind my own bobbins. Love the prewounds but sometimes it’s handy to wind your own! Thanks! Tammy
  2. Kathy are these still available? Thanks, Tammy
  3. Hello! I hope you have sold your machine, but just in case you haven’t, would you be willing to sell the bobbin winder separately? Is it the turbo winder? If not, I completely understand since it is kind of a package deal. I live in KC so we wouldn’t have to bother with shipping. Beautiful machine that someone will be lucky to get! Thank you, Tammy. tammyjvb@gmail.com
  4. Would you be willing to sell the bobbin winder separately if you still have the machine for sale? Thank you, Tammy tammyjvb@gmail.com
  5. Hi All! Two quilts I’ve gotten lately have me really puzzled. I think it’s the fact that some backings(usually the 108”) don’t play nice with Hobbs 80/20. I’ve changed needles as well as batches of needles and made sure the batting was loaded properly. Not only have I gotten a lot of pokies but each stitch turns the fibers over to expose the white underside of the backing fabric. The tension is good and I don’t have the layers rolled too tightly. It’s embarrassing to ask the client for new backing. I’m wondering if some of this backing is just so loosely woven. It seems like my Hobbs batting on the roll is becoming a little inconsistent in quality as well. Am I doing something wrong? Has anyone else had this problem? Does washing the quilt help? Thanks for your feedback! Tammy
  6. Beautifully done! You made it come to life. Thanks for sharing this!
  7. What a great idea! I need to do this!! I call it the "sit and stare" but I never thought to do this while on my current project! Somebody on the forum suggested this a while back and I use it on every custom I do. I use a piece of acrylic from Lowe's that they will cut to your measurements. Put it over a block and doodle away. Use dry erase markers and away you go!
  8. Well thank-you all. No I don't have a computer on my machine. I just quilted as I went along, a lot of micro stippling and I used one of my acrylic circles, a wonderful investment when I was starting out. Tammy
  9. When a gal brought me this, I cringed! It had been stored for years and had big water stains on it. This was a huge embroidered top made by a family member who had passed away. Surprisingly the water stains didn't even show when I was done! Boy, was this a challenge!
  10. This is darling! That'd be so cute hung on the nursery wall! Super job!
  11. It seems like each has its place but this forum just seems to be family. I've followed it for years and you kinda grow attached to folks here. I usually just read and don't post but I hope to do better. Without this forum I doubt that I would be Longarming. Many great gals and guys here to share their expertise. I'd love to see it back the way it was!
  12. I remember my first customer quilt I did with large applique blocks. I knew I needed to do something with those huge items, so I stitched around them, said a little prayer and went for it. I've stitched over large appliquéd pieces ever since. If I can figure out how to post a picture I will.
  13. I have Lisa Calle's Quilter's Groove Proline Ruler set for sale. All but two packages unopened. I just never used them so they need to be passed on to someone that will. These are $150 new and I'm asking $125 with postage included. I also have DeLoa's Jones' Lazer table. This allows you to do stencils or small pantos from the front of the machine. See her website for details I haven't used this either since I removed my quilt top roller. These are $60 new and I'm asking $45. Let me know! Happy quilting! tammyjvb@gmail.com
  14. Thanks everybody! I'll get DeLoa's Appliquide out and give it another try. I think I just need to be more patient and GO SLOW. I'll see if I can figure out how to post a pic when I'm done. Thanks again. You all are the best!
  15. I consider myself a fairly seasoned quilter but I've always had something that leaves me frustrated. Is there a trick to doing SID(stitch in the ditch) on curves? My current quilt has huge circles and really needs it. I've tried all my arc rulers and circle templates but nothing fits these curves. Any suggestions?? Thanks a bunch!! Tammy
