    Re: possiblw move - TN or FL

    I’ve lived in both states. After living in Florida (Miami, Orlando and Tampa areas) for about 30 years, I moved to Nashville. I didn’t care for it and came home to Florida after four years. ...

    Re: How long does an order take

    Don’t put all the blame on the postal service. I have been disappointed with shipping from MSQC for over a year. If I order the DD by itself, it’s no biggie - it ships the same day or next day. ...

    Re: I May Have Just Killed My Sewing Machine

    The last time I sent my machine out for service, I bought a Juki. I should have cleaned my sewing room instead! I hope you can avoid the urge to shop!

    Re: My new machine seems to have a DRAG in fmq

    I think you can buy a silicone baking sheet from Walmart or Amazon - it should work as well as a Supreme Slider, I think?

    Re: Janome Skyline 3

    Hold off for a week or so, if you can. My local Janome dealer said the Skylines will be on sale in mid-October. She's going to call me... I may be pulling that trigger with you!

    Courthouse Steps tutorial - problem?

    When I try to watch the Courthouse Steps tutorial it connects me to a different MSQC video. Is there a way to let our friends in Hamilton know about it?

    Re: Roman Shades

    I made them but used plastic rings instead of metal. In the heat of the sun they dried out and broke into lots of small pieces. They may not be as inconspicuous as plastic, but I suggest using...

    I'm not sure if you want to buy a machine online, but I just saw the Brother XL2600i for $129 at sewingmachinesplus dot com. And they have a coupon code for 10% off on the website.

    You might want to "remind" him: a white background will show dirt faster than a dark background = more laundry! It sounds like he is pretty responsible about things if he is taking time to design...
