  1. Check your thread path on top first. Then check for lint under the bobbin arm.
  2. Are you using the new version or the old version?
  3. The $25 hour is for the making of a tee shirt quilt. The cutting, fusing, arranging and sewing together. Fabric for the back and batting are separate. I charge separately for long arming; 2-10 cents per sq inch. Overall, it's an expensive quilt for the client if she really wants me to do it all. Especially if she want me to bind it. Thats expensive by itself.
  4. I typically charge $20-25 per shirt, but that includes cutting and fusing. I think that $25 hr is fine if she does the cutting and fusing, as long as you tell her what sizes and what type of fusing you prefer.
  5. I've done this in Embrillance.
  6. I'm using Superior MonoPloy invisible thread with a magna glide bobbin. Loose tension, and stitches look fine. 3.5 needle as recommended by Superior. No twisting on the thread path. Net on the spool. Doing custom quilt. First ruler block went fine. Set up a panto for the wide border, and I'm getting thread breakage every few inches. What else can I try? It driving me crazy since the invisible thread is so hard to see to re-thread. 2017 Millie. M bobbin
  7. I'm sure someone would offer. We all love our machines. If you want to travel a bit to Tucson I'd be happy to show you.
  8. I have a 2017 blissed Millie with most of the bells and whistles. I’m trying to figure out what it is worth if I decide to sell it and get a new model. Any ideas?
  9. I had that problem with the cheap batting Joanns sells. If someone brings me that I refuse to use it anymore.
  10. 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.
  11. Wow, that machine costs a small fortune new. Someone take advantage, it's a wonderful machine.
  12. 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.
  13. It's called Blooming Butterflies. Don't remember where I got it.
  14. Perhaps a silly question, but you are using a ruler base?
