    Re: Spray Basting and Wrinkles

    I purchased a bag of plastic clamps from Home Depot (10 assorted size clamps for about $10 CDN). I clamp the backing to my table wrong side up, spray, add the batting spray again and then add the...
  3. Re: My little furbaby, Maggie, lost her battle with cancer today.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. Unfortunately, I know just how you're feeling. We had to do the same thing on Monday afternoon. I can't remember the last time I've felt this sad.
  4. Re: Cotton or cotton/poly blend for placemats?

    I've used 100% cotton many times. Never had any problems.
  5. Re: How many of you have dreamed of wanting a Kitchen Aid Mixer?

    I've had my Kitchen Aid mixer for many years now. Sometimes I use it a lot and sometimes it sits for a long time before I use it again.

    I keep it on my counter not just because it's heavy, but...

    Re: Appreciate M* care with packing!

    I don't work for any postal service but I'm going to stick my neck out with a guess as to why it was left beneath a bush. Chances are it may have to do with the number of thefts of packages being...

    Re: Looking for

    These prices aren't much better in Canada. I just looked up random layer cakes and they range from $45 to $60 with most around to the $55+ range.

    Re: Finally done!!

    Beautiful quilt, AlohaSandy!

    On another note, are you sure you want your complete address to be visible to everyone on this site? I would be concerned about the safety of having it show up on your...

    Re: T-shirt quilt questions

    Thank you, Carlie Wolf. It took me a while but it was a fun make.

    I used SF101 stabilizer with each of the jacket pieces as they were stretchy fabrics. Everything was machine sewn (I did break a...

    Re: T-shirt quilt questions

    I had the same project earlier this for my son and daughter-in-law. I took most of the fabrics from the jackets and incorporated them into different basic blocks. A few I highlighted as a block on...
  11. Re: Three square Christmas Dresden table toppers

    So pretty! I have yet to try Dresdens. Looks like another one I need to learn. :icon_bigsmile:
  12. Re: What do you take to Quilt Retreats/Classes? How do you pack it all in?

    I have a Pfaff Passport 3.0. It's a perfect little machine for travel. The power cord and foot pedal fit into the top of the carrying case, and the extension table has it's own case which attaches to...
  13. Re: What do you dislike about your sewing machine?

    I have the Husqvarna Viking Topaz 20. Love ALMOST everything about this machine. It handles anything I throw at it for both sewing and embroidery. But.....

    The light at the front of the machine...

    Re: Binding Class

    Sounds like an awesome class! Now I don't feel like I'm doing it wrong when I cut my binding at 2".
    I've been doing that lately with smaller items but now I feel confidant in trying the 2" binding...
  15. Re: Advice Needed: Buying a new Washer and Dryer

    I have had an LG set with a front load washer for just over seven years. I can't say enough good things about them.

    Both the washer and dryer can be used with or without steam. Out of habit from...

    Re: Where Am I Going?

    You might find that you don't want to narrow your search down too much. In my past moves (we're in our eighth house and rented twice before that) I found that many of the listings don't have all the...

    Re: Want to be brave & tell us your age?

    I'll be 54 in a couple of weeks. Age has never meant anything to me - I still have to do the math when someone asks how old I am.
