  3. Hi everyone, Here's the link to a previous discussion about my Little Adapter. Again, I can't tell you how much I like my table without the third bar. Any questions send me an email at peachfarmer@sbcglobal.net. http://www.apqs.com/quiltboard/viewthread.php?tid=11316&page=1#pid107703
  4. I have the Hartley and the Circle Lord. I have only tried the Hartley which was fairly simple. I recently purchased the crosshatching tool from Quilter's Rule booth at PIQF. I haven't tried it yet, but you can do this from the front of the machine. The black part rests against your front backing bar, then you attached the clear ruler part at the angle you wish to use, and use it like you would any hand-held ruler. I can't wait to try it out when I have an appropriate quilt to use it on. See webpage here: http://www.quiltersrule.com/template/mqt-chr.html
  5. Someone mentioned on this forum before that they do the following periodically when they are not quilting for a few days or on a trip. This is done when zippers are attached to your leaders. Zip the back leader and the front leader together. Spray with water to dampen, tighten up as you would a loaded quilt and let it dry. The cotton leaders will shrink up nice and straight. This might be a preventative maintenance procedure if you continually have problems. Is the person that mentioned this procedure still with us to clearify?
  6. Do you all check your U2U often? I never think to. I missed an important message because the person chose to do a U2U instead of using the email address at the bottom of my signature.
  7. I had an actual repairman/store owner at the Long Beach Quilt Show tell me to use WD40. Let it soak for a few minutes and wipe off. He assured me it wouldn't take the gold off.
  8. Is your machine too high? It is harder to reach and see when your machine is too high. I have the hydraulic lift and I have to remember to lower my machine.
  9. Contact Myrna Ficken. She has an instruction book out for the Hartley that is execllent. Go to http://www.aquilterschoice.com for her phone contact info. No affilliation.
  10. I had a older friend once that told the story of a lady who complained that her husband always sat on the bed after she made it and messed it up. The friend told her to be thankful he was messing up her bed and not someone elses. So my DH can pat my butt all he wants cause that means he's not patting some other gals butt. I just smile when he sits on our freshly made bed and think of this story. One of these days he may catch me smiling. Ooops!
  11. It is my understanding the blue marking pens aren't made with the same formula as in previous years. I avoid them unless trying something out on a muslin practice piece.
  12. This is one of the first places I go each morning. It's free and well organized so you can easily read everything. Keep up the great job everyone and APQS too for hosting this website.
  13. Notice the bird cage behind kitty. Is the bird really safe?
  14. If you are getting glue everywhere, are you using the tips for the glue bottle. Here's the link to see what they are. These little tips make it all work, along with your "hot" iron of course. http://www.sharonschamber.com/shopping%20cart/accessories/accessories.htm I glue lots of things...applique, bias binding, etc. Wouldn't be without my elmer's washable school glue, bottle and sticks.
