Hi geri!  welcome!  If you watch the How-to Videos on this site it helps alot.  I just saw one where Jody talks about this very problem.  The tip was to use a smaller empty thread spool that would fit inside the larger one. then put it on your machine thru the smaller spool.  should eliminate the wobbling.

good luck and happy quilting!

Welcome to the group. I'm sorry to hear about your lack of fabric selection in your area. I can't imagine living somewhere where fabric is hard to find. Online shopping can be a pro since you really can save some money, but I do understand your plight on wanting to see and  feel the fabric yourself. I prefer to do this also, but the stores that I have around me tend to carry much of the same thing and so I do enjoy the online option. Good luck in your ventures you will love it here!

I will order these if I can find them online but could you tell me their name?   I'm not sure what to type into the search field to find this item.

Thank you so much for your answer.

Geri - First of all welcome to QCA - i am sure you will love it and will learn lots. If you ask a question, it will be answered with lots of suggestions.

My favorite place to go if looking for a particular fabric is  www.quiltshops.com  and when you get to their home page, type in the name of the fabric you are searching for and I always click "Thumbnails" and any store in their system who has that fabric will generally pop up.  You then click on the shop you are interested in and go from there.  You can save searches and this is a good way to do some comparison shopping price wise.

Geri - other good places to order from is www.connectingthreads.com, and www.fabric.com - these sites don't show up on the quiltshops.com listing.  The Connecting Threads site has free shipping for orders $50 or more and Fabric.com site has free shipping for $35.00 or more orders.

Thank all of you for all of your suggestions and especially for your caring thoughts and wishes. Hopefully I will be able to do as you suggested and buy fabric, thread, etc online. 

I really like the idea of buying the little wood posts to insert into the thread so it will fit my machine spindle.  Please tell me the name of these posts and were they are sold if any of you know.

I appreciate everyone's kind welcome to this site, I'm sure I will enjoy being a member.

Geri, I get them at my LQS for $2.50 a bag. Perhaps you can find them online.

quiltinnonie:

I have a question.  If I want to embroidery a flower on my fabric, would I do this before or after I add batting?

 

 

If you want to do machine embroidery I would do it before adding batting.   If it is hand embroidered it can be done either way.
