    Re: Oil for Juki 2010q

    I was recommended to use the same thin specialty oil that I was using on my Bernina 710. The Bernina is long gone but I keep using the same brand of oil.

    Re: Polyester batting and breaking stitches

    Hmmmm, I use Aurafil 50wt for piecing but don't generally use it for quilting as it is a thinner thread being only 2 ply as opposed to say Gutterman 50wt which is 3 ply I think. I use Aurafil 50wt...

    I made 2 quilts for a dear friend; hated how both of them came together but gifted them anyway and have regretted it ever since. I feel as though I cheapened our friendship and I am now, several...

    Re: do you think

    Re: Quilting on your domestic machine

    I love close quilting and usually do either straight lines vertically, or a continuous spiral starting from the centre of my quilt. I use my walking foot as a guide so my lines are usually about 3/8"...

    Soluble thread and hand basting.

    Thoughts on this? I hand baste my quilts and am wondering...why not use soluble thread so I don't have to snip it out after quilting...it'll just wash away when I wash it after completion. Thoughts?

    Frequent thread changing during quilting.

    I usually pick one thread colour for my quilting but with my current quilt I'd really like to use a couple of different colored threads. I am planning to do matchstick quilting so want the threads to...

    Re: Stitch Regulators

    I'm of the same opinion as Auntie Uli. I had a Bernina 7 series machine with a stitch regulator and I found it distracting. I ended up not using it. (Don't have the Bernina anymore either.) Do try...

    Thankyou Denise. So....if someone was able to purchase patterns etc without having a subscription (ie me), what is the purpose of the subscription? Did it entitle you to something more?

    Subscription? I've never paid a subscription to Craftsy but I have an account and have purchased patterns over the years. Can someone explain this to me?
