Help. I am hurrying to complete a quilt before tearing down my Millie for a move. I'm almost to the bottom and realize the backing is about 2 inches short. What can I do besides take it off and try to sew a little bit more on??? Can I add a piece of fabric to the backing on the longarm?? I am so mad right now. It's a wide back and when I had to square up the cut ends I had to rip the ends to get a straight of grain! It was cut so crooked I didn't have any choice. But I should have measured twice and ripped once. Ughhhhhh!
I have tried using Magna Glide Bobbins and just can't get it right (the tension). I tried today with Glide on the top. Bobbin thread kept showing on the top. I adjusted and adjusted and it continued. How do you put them in the bobbin? What kind of tension works? Do you leave the spring in the bobbin case? Any tips would be appreciated. Nancy E.
if you use chalk to mark, you know what a mess it can be when it comes to refilling your Pounce Pad or chaco-liner. i found a solution!! i bought a cheap dye bottle from my local beauty supply store (less than a buck). i funneled my chalk in it and 'squirt' it into whatever i need to refill. it's a breeze to get that chalk into the top of that itty bitty chaco-liner. NO mess and it doesn't get all over (except when you try to do it one handed and take pictures at the same time ) if you have multiple colors of chalk, buy a bottle for each color. i prefer to use white Miracle Chalk. it removes easily with a swipe or two with the old red velvet type lint removers, plus it removes with water or steam from an iron!! i have a thin tipped air soluble purple pen for everything else.
