• Re: Longarmers Share

    I just received a newsletter from my local sewing machine store. They talked about the new Pfaff Power Quilter P3 long arm, but no where does it state the throat size. I looked on the Pfaff website as well, and it doesn't state it either. Does anyone know what it might be?

    [quote user="Jeanine"] No matter what way you load it, you will have a more difficult time centering one way. [/quote] That's kind of what I figured. But even if you load it vertically, it still probably wouldn't be centered, because the excess of my backing usually ends up at the bottom, since I usually start about 2 inches from the

    I've been happy with the pantographs from They're having a sale now and the nice thing is, they have sizes for all machine sizes.

    I have a question about aligning the backing on a frame. Let's say you have a panel design and you've added borders around it to make it large enough for the backing. Is there a way to center it on the frame, with the panel going parallel to the bars, so that when quilted, it's actually centered? I had a pieced back that had 5 sections.

  • Re: Harry Potter Paper Piecing Project of Doom: General Chat

    This will be my first paper piecing project. Hope I haven't bitten off more than I can chew. I picked up some fat quarters at a recent quilt show. I'm just waiting on the arrival of my background fabric and Carol Doak paper. I was hoping to have it this weekend, but it hasn't shown up yet. Hopefully Monday. Really looking forward to making

  • Easy way to cut your chained pieces apart

    A while back I was at a monthly demo of new tools and books for sewing/quilting. They showed us a new gadget to cut apart your chained pieces. Well, the last time I quilted and did a bunch of chained pieces, I happened to look over and spot my Clover desk needle threader, which I absolutely love for threading needles. I noticed it had a blade on the

  • Re: magnetic tool holder at sewing desk

    I think this is a great idea. If you have room on the side of your table, you could always place the strip on the edge of the table top on the side. I'm the world's biggest klutz too, but love this idea. Thanks for sharing. TJ

  • Hi

    Well, I've posted a few messages before actually introducing myself. I've been sewing almost all my life. Made all my clothes in high school and then shirts for my husband and father. Don't do clothes anymore except for a few for my granddaughter. I have to say I don't really like the fashion trends for the last 10-15 years, so no desire

  • Re: How do you keep pieces together at ends without backstitching?

    Thanks for the suggestions. I'll have to leave a longer chain between pieces and also use a shorter stitch to see if that helps. I don't handle them much, just stitch pieces together, iron, and put in pile until I'm ready for the next step.
