  6. If I liked cats, i'd come get Sylvester. He is CUTE! LOL! Too bad I'm allergic, my boys want that kitty!
  7. your thread may not be fully engaged into the tension-er disk. Check your thread path entirely to make sure it is threaded properly. Also, what Linda said.
  8. LOOKS AWESOME!! I'm buying some new designs! Thanks for sharing JoAnn!
  9. Contact your local APQS Representative.
  10. The Real Housewives of Orange County from the BRAVO TV show. We are friends with the Keough's. We met through my best friend from high school, Frank Joseph. It was so fun! They were filming, we were not on camera. It was so hot we stayed in the boat most of the time! We were invited to a taping of a brunch on Sat. but decided to head for the GC.
  11. Thanks everyone!! JoAnn You are so sweet, no wonder I love you! This trip was actually to Lake Havasu in Arizona. We go to Florida in Aug. On the way back we decided since we were so close to go to the Grand Canyon! We "Walked the Sky"! If you've heard of the Indian reservation that built a 4,000 foot high glass horse-shoe over the canyon on the west side, that's where we went. It was AWESOME!!!! We just got back & I'm pooped! Think we brought the heat back with us, it is 105 today! See you next week Laurie! Yes, I think July is the best! You all are so nice thanks so much! I didn't get sun burned Raquel, I wore LOT'S of sun screen!! LOL!

  13. We would have loved to have had you! At a quilt shop there. I forget the name.
  14. To give you an idea of what the board meetings entail: The next board meeting is July 2. It will be at Main Street Quilts at 533 Main St. in Martinez. Meeting begins at 10:30 and usually goes until 12noon. Afterwards we usually go to lunch together (not required). The board meetings are always at a different NCQC member Quilt Shop. The April meeting was in Berkeley at New Pieces. Previous meetings have been in Fairoaks, Tracy, Danville and Lafayette. We try to rotate counties to be accommodating to all members who travel from a far. Give it some thought, we need you!
  15. NCQC is looking for a few new board members. You\'ll need to attend 8 meetings a year (4 board meetings & 4 general meetings) and help out with board functions, this is a "working" board. Check out to see what we\'re all about. Let me know if you are interested or use the contact on the website. It\'s a great organization & a lot of fun!! THANKS!!
  16. I\'ve done this before. It\'ll be fine, just take your time un-sewing & pressing.
  17. Hi all! I\'m writing an article for PLYB with the topic being choosing quilting designs for your quilt. I have my own ideas but was wondering if you would help me out and share some of yours too. I like to take clues from the fabric or theme of the quilt. What other ideas do you have?
  18. your thread has hopped out of a guide. Check you thread path & re-thread. Or maybe your thread is not fully engaged in the tension disc.
