  1. I have just bought a computerized program for my APQS and I am selling all my R & S and other brand groovy boards . I also have about 20 pantograph scrolls. the hartley base extender and a variety of rulers. All are slightly used. Please call if interested. 325- 829-1595, Nancy Harper
  2. Thanks for the info Connie. that is what I was wondering. Nancy
  3. I am considering getting Intelliquilter and not sure if I want IQ Classic with the 12" screen or the IQ Classic Lt with the 10' screen. There is about a thousand dollars difference. Just wondering if there is that much difference or it just a matter of a smaller screen? The dealership is pushing the larger screen of course. A friend of mine has the smaller screen and seems to be happy with that. Anybody out there have a preference? I am also thinking I may need to get my machine tuned up before attaching the IQ. I have had it for three years and use it in my garage studio, which gets quite hot when I am out of town for weeks at a time. Nancy

  5. What requirements do you have for people who bring you donation quilts. Our guild was having a goal of 50 smaller than twin size quilts for a local charity. I offered to do them for 15.00 a piece and that would be my donation. I would do as many as I could squeeze in to my schedule. I was glad I could get to 11. I wasn't afraid of getting too swamped since there are so many in the guild that have LA's and we had 3 months. What I didn't expect was the shape of things they brought me. I didn't expect to do pressing out hard wrikles and trimming really crooked backings and battings just so I could load them on the frame. It seems like they would have a little respect for me since I am saving them money on their quilts. One ladies batting had so many different types of batting pieced together it was like a jigsaw puzzle and of course not smooth. She brought 3 quilts and one of them had the selvage with the fabric info on it, pieced in the middle of the quilt. I thought she must be a beginner, but when she came to pickthem up I saw the quilted jacket she had made with very accurage 1/2 matched squares. Why do people want to use junk for their donation quilts? After I got her quilt tops I sent an email to the guild members asking them to prepare their tops, battings and backings so all I have to do is load them on my frames and quilt them. I told them that although I was just charging them 15.00, I was not just doing a 15.00 job. On several of them I went out of my way to do a custom job. I also trimmed them for them after I quilted them. I will see if any of them come back later for me to do their quilts. I will also pay attention at the next guild meeting to see if all of them arrive. Thanks for all the tips that you all have given about charity quilts.
  6. Thanks everybody for your in put. I have been using some superior threads and didn't know about the Fil-Tec, but I am going to order some today!
  7. So Fines 403 taupe is absolutely stunning on a seafoam green fabric.
  8. Hi I am getting a new Milli this week. I just sold my handiquilter last week and let my cones of thread go with it. So, my question is, What are the favorite brands of threads do you guys find works well for you. And what are your opinion on the bobbins that are used - do you like the smart bobbin or the M bobbin? Is the smart bobbin that much better than the M?
  9. RitaR what are your favorite dies. My favorite is the 2 1/2 strip die. I use it all the time. I see your from Mid NC. My favorite state. I lived in Greensboro for 14 years and loved going to Hanging Rock.
  10. I am getting the Millie with bliss, glide, power advance and hydraulic lift, My hubby is only fair at putting things together, should we pay to have it installed?
