  1. I had that problem with the cheap batting Joanns sells. If someone brings me that I refuse to use it anymore.
  2. I agree, people DO think that is easy. I got a last minute quilt last year, for a parent's 50th wedding anniversary. All blocks with photos or drawings. She wanted a "quick" "simple" stitch in the ditch. She was shocked when I explained that this was a custom job and how difficult so called simple stitching is. Super king size and she'd budgeted only $100. LOL Wanted me to bind it too. When I gave her the cost, she almost fainted. Finally took it on after she talked to the rest of the family and they helped with the cost, but she decided to bind it herself too. She still had to pay over $600. I got that one done and out! in three days. All ruler and hand guided.
  3. Wow, that machine costs a small fortune new. Someone take advantage, it's a wonderful machine.
  4. I only wrap once with heavier threads and non slippery threads. Glide and a few others I wrap two times. If the sensor keeps going off and the thread isn't broken, I adjust the wraps.
  5. It's called Blooming Butterflies. Don't remember where I got it.
  6. Perhaps a silly question, but you are using a ruler base?
  7. I really like how this baby quilt came out.

    Lenni problem.

    Also changing the needle orientation slightly may help.
  9. Something else is going on if you are seeing a lot of lint on the needle area. Glide is a trilobal poly and normally doesn't leave a bunch of lint.
  10. No new client quilts to do. I have several of my own to do and actually have two loaded (smaller so both at once). But I can't seem to get myself going. I look at Magnificent Millie, and just can't seem to start. Husband had major surgery early December and is still healing, I know that's part of it. I need encouragement.
  11. They beep about a lot of things. You will tune it out soon. You can turn off the thread sensor, or check how you threaded it. Some slippery threads need to be wound around it two or three times.
