    Six years ago when your new Brother was $1000 it was a mid range machine and is probably worth repairing. The older mid range Brothers (six years is old) were very sturdy. The new Brothers (less than...

    Re: layer cakes

    You can get 40 10" squares out of 3 yards of fabric if you make no cutting mistakes. A few layer cakes (not many) have 42 squares. Make sure the pattern you are doing calls for 40 squares not 42.
