    Re: Janome3165QDC

    I wondered if that were the case. I have a 3160 that I bought for classes, retreats, etc. I love mine. Sorry you have had issues with yours.

    Re: Sewing basket or what

    I'm fortunate that I have a room dedicated to quilting/sewing so I just try to keep everything corralled in that room. I use different baskets that hold rulers, scissors, rotary cutters, etc. I...

    I have always wanted to finish all my own quilts. There have been a handful I've sent out. Those were large quilts and/or for a special occasion and I wanted them to be nicer than I could do them. I...

    Re: Quilted But Not A Quilt

    Knowing absolutely nothing about machine embroidery I'm trying to figure out how this was done. It is so beautiful and perfectly finished

    Anniversary quilt

    160725

    This is a recently finished quilt for my sister. It is all batiks and "quilted to death". I liked this pic because it shows the texture of the quilting. Even though it is heavily quilted,...

    1st off what a handsome baby boy. Congratulations. What I've done when I needed lettering for applique is to purchase a couple alphabet stencils (Hobby Lobby, Michaels, etc). Just inexpensive...

    Re: Selling question

    I was forgetting the fact it was a 6600. Those are hard to take to retreats and classes. I have one too (and love it) but it doesn't leave home.

    Re: Selling question

    In the past I have kept a machine as backup because they just wouldn't give me a fair trade in value. I have also sold one to a guild member for a fairly decent price. Good luck.

    Re: Sewing room??

    Lucky you. I like having a tall cutting station in my room. I bought a buffet on clearance and it's the perfect height. It has the advantage of storage underneath - drawers, two cupboards and book...

    Re: Nylon Thread

    I realize you were talking about pre-wound bobbins. I was using the term "invisible" because the nylon thread was often referred to as that. It usually comes in either clear or grey. The grey is...

    Re: Nylon Thread

    I have used "invisible" thread but the nylon thread of early days was terrible. As mentioned above like fishing line. I hadn't heard of this being used as a bobbin thread, only top thread. And I have...

    Re: Midnight quilt show

    I so agree with this! I loved Craftsy. Even to access my old classes from Craftsy is a pain now on Bluprint. I am not impressed.

    Re: satin binding - make or pre-made?

    I don't remember the premade I used being very wide. It wasn't double fold, just flat. I folded it in half and machine stitched.

    I have used the Wrights premade for a couple baby quilts. It was surprisingly soft and washes up nicely.
