    Re: Need a sewing machine

    Welcome to the forum.

    Sometimes paying more gets you more. After doing lots of research I decided my best bang for the buck was a straight stitch only machine. They are low maintenance and hard to...

    When I got a dedicated sewing room the first thing I added was a sturdy cutting table that I could access from three sides set at the correct height. I used bed risers under the table legs to get it...

    Re: Using different color threads

    I LOVE:icon_hug: variegated thread. When I use variegated thread I use the variegated thread only in the top and a thinner thread as close to the middle shade of the variegated thread in the bobbin.

    Re: Midnight quilt show

    I agree, a sad day. Since Bluprint took over Craftsy they are obviously focusing on entertainment, rather than education. They have only produced two new quilting classes in the past year.
