  1. I can not post photos either. I tried to change my profile photo.......it allowed me to delete the old photo but it will not let me upload the new photo.
  2. I am quilt for a gal that is wanting to use 2 layers of warm & natural, need to know pros/cons. Do I need to adjust to a longer stitch length so that it does not create a tightness and cause it to pucker? All opinions welcome TIA, Diane on a Millie

  6. All suggestions on how to do this is appreciated! I have just finished the top for a new Christmas tree skirt. I want to put in on the longarm to quilt it (of course, isn't that why I bought it?). I want to put a ruffle on the bottom of it and I want the ruffle to be between the layers or something so that it looks 'finished', but I can't think of a way to do that, for some reason I can't come up with a solution on how to accomplish this. I am sure there is a SIMPLE answer on how to do this. Any suggestions on how to do this would be appreciated. My thinking cap is

  9. Hey Rita, My original posting showed the machine is in Northern Virginia......do you live close by? That would be sweet I was out of town, DH was responding to emails with uploading the PDF for me.........there is no way he was going to get on this site, he thought he might get hooked, and I might open a quilting business and put him to work with 2 longarms around the house, LOL!!!!! He is glad I am home, so here is the PDF with all the info for all to see all the goodies that come with it for the price I hope this formats well as I copied it from my PDF, could not find a

  12. Thanks everyone!!! ​My free handing is getting better with every quilt. Here is what I have painfully experienced........just because a thread color is a great choice does not always mean it is the right thread to use if you are free handing. You have to be able to see the thread to know where you need to go ahead of where you are at and that means all colors that are used in the top.....................this is what I call 'advance preparation' it is the same when playing the piano...you have to be able to read the music ahead to prepare for where you need to go........ Quilt t
  13. Photos of 3 quilts that I just finished for 2 gals at Ft Leavenworth KS. They are both beginners and did a great job on their tops and I quilted them for free for them. Two have already shipped back to them and the last one will be in the mail tomorrow. I also did labels for them and Michelle's start quilt is her very first quilt. Andrea's Star Quilt was her second. Enjoy!!
  14. Not one thing..............here is what happened.......went to the quilt show, while I was shopping around I got bit by an 'M-bug'...I did not know that there were 'M-bugs' lurking around-saw the booth, took a test drive and that 'M-bug' kept bitting me and I heard it whispering 'I'm yours...take me home and someone will adopt BobbieSue and it will just be me and you, I will share a room with her until you do'........Now, you might think this is just a story-but it is truely what happened After all, I already had a longarm......right Due to an 'attachment' disorder, I have had to work thro
  15. Brake, Brake.......secretly loosens............ I have followed the directions for the brake and now this is really beginning to get on my nerves. I am use to the ratchets on my Gammill which ensures that the poles will not move, not budge, stays where I put them........ So I am sure because of how my Gammill poles operate that I am probably a lot less patient with the brake on my Millie. So here is what is happening: The directions say, don't over tighten the brake, you should be able to slightly move the pole with out releasing the brake. Okay, I followed those directions, the
  16. Results on side clamps I pulled out 2 old curtain rods, that was good, only got caught 2 times while quilting the entire quilt, but it was very minimal irritant. One thing I did like about using the rods......it kept my clamps from hitting the carpeted floor......this was positive and save me time from walking them over to the side to lower them..........2 issues solved here The backing was wider, that was good, this really helped. I am still going to check on all the other suggestions after we move........yep........we are moving and the movers are moving 2 long arms and a gran
  17. I sent you a message with all the specs and the price. Looking forward to hearing from you.
  18. I haven't drove away yet...........spent all day packing up my studio and I am still not finished Trying to make sure that all serger threads are packed together, then embroidery threads and stabilizers, and I have yet to pack my quilting threads, and let's don't forget 2 large rolls of 90 wide batting and 2 large rolls 120 wide batting......the mover said 'what is that' DH says, over 1/2 of our total boxes will be my studio . Monday I spent all day packing up my music books, yikes that was bad too 6 book boxes of music and I am not done yet with that....I still have 2 boxes of music
  19. Thanks everyone........... I am going to check on the suggestions about the clamps. I think are you are correct in saying that the backing was not as wide as the other quilts....... The other quilts had 5" on the side, this quilt only had 3 at the max.
  20. I think I have done a total of 4 quilts on my new Millie. For some reason when I was doing a quilt yesterday, the side tensioning clamps kept catching on the left side of the Millie and messing up my border stitching. I do not remember having this issue on the other 3 quilts that I did. I tried putting a ruler on the poles to raise up the clamps, but that didn't work, it still got caught. It seems for some reason the clamps are sinking lower than on the previous quilts. Does someone have a suggestion on this. It was really irritating Thinking out loud here.....could it be
  21. HELP! HELP! HELP! I am patiently waiting for a new home for Gammill and she is still for sale.......................this is taking much longer than I had originally thought...........I really do not want another business venture as the one I currently own (teaching piano lessons to pay for my hobbies) takes more time so that I have less quilting time...........urrgggggg. 2 Longarms sitting in my studio is crimping my style and with DH on furlough I am fixing to teach him how to use it cuz I have 3 quilts waiting to be done for some military wives out of Ft. Levenworth KS that I do
