    RebeccaGrace got a reaction from Gail O in What Goodies Should I Buy for my New (to me) Millie?   
    Yes, I doodle feathers and spirals all the time, on my iPad, on my church bulletins during the sermon.  It definitely helps!  Patti Jo, I emailed you directly re: your Micro Drive handles.
    thanks,

    I am bringing home my first ever long arm machine on Tuesday, a 2013 dealer demo blissed  Millenium on a 12' table.  I am SO EXCITED!  My APQS dealer is 2 hours away from me and I want to be able to jump in right away as soon as she's set up in my studio.  What goodies should I buy while I'm in the shop?  
    I know I want to learn to do ruler work, so I'll need the extended base.  I do intricate appliqué on my own quilts and would like to be able to ditch around the appliqué with accuracy.  Are the micro drive handles the best way to do that, or should I try one of the acrylic needle guide tools (sold by long arm ruler mfgs) instead?  What thread should I start with?  Any other gadgets or gizmos that would be helpful?  Also, if I put her on casters, can I move her on carpet?  I just want to give myself an extra couple feet behind the machine for pantos and be able to push her back to the wall when I'm working from the front or using my other machines.
    i'm hoping to add IQ or Quiltpath in the future, but first I want to get used to the machine, loading quilts, etc.
    Any advice or suggestions greatly appreciated.
