    A hint to help with avoiding the odor with front loading washers... leave the soap dispenser and door open for 24 hours so they dry out...and use a microfiber cloth to dry the inside of the door and where the water remains in the gasket after you're finished washing. I haven't had any issues since adding those two steps. stitcheraz

    If the butterflies are currently appliqued to a single layer, I would add tearaway stabilizer to the back AND washaway stabilizer to the top. stitcheraz

    Can't say whether it's good or bad, but make sure you are comfortable with all the features, that you get lessons, and that you have as much "throat" space as you can afford. That's the space to the right of the needle before you run into the machine. The bigger that space (also called harp) the easier it will be to deal with your

  • Re: machine embroidery

    It depends on what you want... If I want the machine embroidery to also be the quilting I use washaway stabilizer and sandwich as usual.
