  1. Welcome to Charlotte! I am in Charlotte not far from Matthews. Let me know if you have any questions.
  2. I hope you did! Alas my phone did not ring.
  3. So glad he is recovering well. I will be thinking of you all!!!
  4. Mercedes - I have the same question. I've been going to ACTIVITY, UNREAD, SORT BY TOPIC, APPLY but I'm sure there must be an easier way that I have just not figured out yet In the old forum I would look at the list of TOPICS with new activity. It was a quick way to browse new content by TOPIC and not by each individual entry. I'm sure I'm just missing an easier way to browse the new forum. I think the look of the new forum is very nice, clean looking.
  5. I had a similar situation with my Lucey. Support was very helpful and I ended up doing two things: 1. I had lots of metal vibrating on the top/back cover. They sent me extra pads to put inside the cover. I also had to do a bit of pulling and bending on the cover to make sure it was not vibrating. All is fine now. 2. After about a month my machine started "screeching". It ended up being an air pocket that formed. Support sent me the packing grease and I repacked the area. It wasn't fun but also not too hard. The worst part was having to remove the head off the rails. It too
  6. Thanks, everyone. I have been researching these choices. That Quitazoid is fascinating to watch in the Youtube videos.
  7. I am doing the Kimmy Brunner Craftsy class and need some circle rulers. She recommends starting with three sizes roughly 3", 5-6", 8-9". She sells the rulers but her site says out of stock. Do you have a favorite brand? I have looked at Jamie Whallen's site and others. Do you like the open ones where you can do inside or outside OR do you prefer a solid one? If you use the open ones (with middle cut out) do you prefer the ones with a slit for bringing your foot inside? I am new to ruler work and with the high cost of these rulers I want to make a good decision. Thanks for a
  8. I have done several with thick seams where several points meet. I did not have any needles break. I did pantos from the back and I did find it would "push" me off my line when I approached some of these bulkier areas. I just slowed down and curved back onto the panto line when possible. I would suggest a panto design that can accommodate potential bobbles and not look skewed. Mine were very organic and flowing and you could not really tell.
  9. Urban Elelmentz has a few on their site for free download. I think the Celebrate and Celebrate Petite are good beginner ones.
  10. Amazing. Love it. The colors and quilting are outstanding!
  11. My metal cover on the top/ back vibrated very loudly and shook the machine. I called APQS and they sent me several pads to place on the metal. It worked great. They were basically just the rubber/foam pads you see at the store for chairs or furniture (long rectangular size). I did need to do a little stretching here and there on the metal so it was no longer rattling. It took a few minutes to fine tune the fit but now it is great. A huge change in the noise and vibration levels. I also have a bit more black build up on the right side of the carriage (when looking from the front sid
