  1. Missouri is my home state, and I contributed the fabric showing our state tree, the flowering dogwood. They grow in both white and pink varieties. These pictures were taken in my front yard a couple weeks ago. Enjoy.
  2. NOT MY MACHINE. Spotted this morning on ebay. http://www.ebay.com/itm/2012-APQS-George-Sit-Down-Quilting-Machine-/191564533832?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2c9a22d048
  3. RitaR, I'd LOVE to happen onto a deal like that. Message me if you find a similar deal. Drooling . . . :-)
  4. I found it on Etsy. The designer is Krista Hamrick, and I love her art. Might keep an eye on ebay too. This was the only place I found it, and the seller had about 2 yards left. It really is a beautiful piece.
  5. I found the perfect fabric for my backing! It's from 2008 - Blank Quilting. I love it!
  6. Would anyone be willing to post pics of your solutions? I'm a visual learner, and it's hard to picture in my mind these solutions. Y'all are the best. :-) Joni
  7. Someone may be interested in this. (It's not mine. Just sharing info.) Pretty sure it's the same one listed on LongarmUniversity.com for $8K. http://www.ebay.com/itm/APQS-Lenni-Long-Arm-Quilting-Machine-and-10-steel-frame-/231492776638?
  8. Hi Jim! It is the 923 Elite with S/R! Not sure if the S/R is Intellistitch or something else. No indication on the machine head. Believe it to be about a dozen years old, give or take. Can't wait to set her up and start learning. Thanks for your input. I look forward to learning more from all of you as time goes on. Such a great bunch of folks.
  9. I've actually thought about that Sheagatzi! I don't want to be startled either, especially when I'm stitching on a quilt! Makes perfect sense! Yes mine are basement windows as well. I'm thankful for the shared thoughts and advice!
  10. I know you folks are an artistic bunch. I have a question regarding natural lighting. The room where my machine will be has a north-facing window, and a west-facing window. Machine will be positioned across the room in an east-west fashion. I plan to do more freemotion quilting rather than pantos. So . . . which direction would be best for me to place the machine? Free-motion side facing north window, or panto side facing north window? Hope this makes sense.
  11. It doesn't seem real, as I've been waiting for this for such a long time. I had narrowed my search to two brands (APQS, and A-1 because they are local to me). Did my homework; attended some shows, and have read everything I can. Found a used A-1 that should suit me well. It's got some bells and whistles, it's a dozen years old, it's in my price range and is upgradable. I can't wait to get started. I know it was the right decision because I have had absolutely ZERO buyers' remorse. Someday I hope to own a Millie, but for now, I am just so very thankful. I love this forum, and have lea
  12. To Beth Durand, what kind of press? Interested in knowing more. Thanks!
