  • Quilting/sewing/embroidering machines

    I am wanting to buy a new sewing machine and have researched online. There are so many to choose from these days. My old machine is a Brother from the 1950s and does not work very well anymore. Cannot get the tension corrected for any length of time. Always messing up. So, I decided to get a new modern...

    Congrats on the new machine! A few years ago I got my new Elna Quilt Dream Pro. She sure intimidated me at first! Now we are best friends and I couldn't live without her. I still have my original BF....a Pfaff Tipmatic. She sits in my bedroom for nights like tonight when I can't sleep...

    So I've set up my new Babylock and am feeling quite inadequate. My other machine was so simple and this one is most definitely not. I can't even get it threaded the right way in order to engage the auto threader. And I'm not sure I'm winding my bobbins correctly as I am having tension...

    I can't believe I did it... After using my old manual Janome Harmony for the last 8 years ( I knew nothing when I bought it, except it was cheap and I could put it on my Sears card) I've been itchin' to get a new tool/toy. Mind you, I don't actually "need" one, this one is quite...

  • Re: It's Time for MQ V!

    I've been looking through my magazines at the Christmas wall hangings. I made one last year for our motorhome. It was one of those last minute panels and I added some borders and then quilted around it. It really did turn out cute and the kids did like it, so that is important. I started to cut some...

  • Re: Irons and sewing machines, oh my!

    Wow! I can't tell you how helpful all your posts are. Your generousity in taking the time is amazing. With that in mind, I thought I'd give you an update. On the iron: yesterday I bought a Rowenta Pro Master at Sears on sale for about $80. It was a lot to spend, but the discount was large and...

  • Irons and sewing machines, oh my!

    It looks like I'm in the market for both right now. So, I come to you for your wisdom! Two questions: 1) If you were buying a new iron for quilting (and general use) which one would you get? AND 2) I'm looking for a lightweight sewing machine to take to classes, retreats, etc. One with decent...

  • Re: Which machine?

    I bought the Janome Memory Craft Professional 6600 about a year and a half ago. Overall, I'm very happy. It is the nicest machine I've ever owned. It came with three years free service. These are my favorite things about it: Thread cutter Button (no more clipping threads from the back of the...

    Going to a UFO (one day for 12 hours) retreat- What do you bring? We will be working on our individual projects. They have access to design walls, electricity, good lighting, tables and chairs. There will be two cutting tables set up with mats supplied. I bring my small pressing pad and iron. Besides...
