    Re: Best Pattern for Silk Velvet?

    Gorgeous fabrics! My only suggestion is beware what you mark it with, if you need to mark anything on it. Water used to remove some markers will ruin the texture of the silk and leave permanent spots...

  9. Re: Quilts for Contest/Competition/Judging dos & don'ts

    And I have heard quilters say that they were judged down for not sewing their mitered corners on their binding shut......on both sides. I had never thought to do that before I heard that.

    Re: Knee lift - anyone use it?

    Yes!! I love mine on my Janome. It took a little time to get use to it, but I miss it dearly, if I have to use my machine not in the cabinet. My hubby had to fit my cabinet to work, but it was so...
