    Daisy, try Nancy's Notions for info on quilt as you go. There is also the Cotton method a sort of quilt as you go. Nancy's Notions has books on both of these. Pat Pfeiffer

    As to specific questions,and anyone can answer this if you know: Which way do the numbers go for thread tension? Is higher number looser, or is a lower number looser? I asked the clerk in the store today and she was as confused as I was. I may have to call the owner of the shop and ask her. She divides her time between three shops she owns, and of course

    Carey, I really can't be very specific, but the Bernina was unhandy for me to thread up and use. But then I am having trouble with my new Pfaff, having been so intimately involved with my older Pfaff. Do I think I made a mistake to get the new one? No, it is the same very dependable German engineering, with the IDT--their built in even feed feature

    Kristin, Thanks for the link. I have a stash of old hankies saved from a rummage sale and I think I would like to make a quilt like that. I plan to order the directions.

    I just got my Pfaff Quilt Expression 4.0 in July, and then hauled it with me to my very first quilt show--the Milwaukee Machine Quilting Show, without knowing how to run the machine.

  • Re: Thread breaking

    I used to attempt free motion embroidery with Natesh Rayon thread, and because rayon thread is slippery it would come off the spool too fast and slip around the spool pin and break. It was apt to make snarls under the fabric, too. Now that I have been practicing free motion machine embroidery I started to have tension problems, which upper tension adjustments
