Dear Alberta Quilter,
Thank-you so much for sharing how your sewing circle works. It will help us define the organization of our own group. I particularly appreciate your use of the word mission. I wish you well on yours.
Hi there. I'm not sure if this answers your question but I can share how we do at our church sewing circle. We have a committee of three ladies that goes the day before to prepare and make sure we know what there is to do. We usually have attendance of about 25 ladies (and 15+ children ) Some of the ladies bring sewing machines but not all. We usually have the youth girls laying out tops with squares, the sewers sew them together, then we stretch them out on wooden frames and the next thing that happens is they get tied with yarn. Then they come off the frames and someone pins the backing around to the front and someone else sews it down. So each one pretty much gets to choose which part of that process they wish to participate in. We make baby layettes to send to poor countries and we also make many that we give to our local health units on Indian reserves, etc. We bring quilts to a woman's shelter. While we don't necessarily base on our projects on scripture, there are many uplifting, heartwarming moments throughout the day, sharing struggles or praising God for victories. We have a list of who brings lunch on which day and we also have a list for whose turn it is to bring devotions before lunch. We also make sure we keep several quilts in stock to hand out to victims of fires , etc. Sorry this is so lengthy. You can probably tell I'm quite passionate about this mission. It's nothing but a huge blessing for each one. Feel free to ask for any clarification. There are many ways to serve others and I'm sure God will lead you as you search for an Avenue for your outreach.
Well Done! I am usually not a bargello fan, but I truly admire the attention to detail, the color combinations work perfectly!
with the right companion fabrics and pattern, i think it could be lovely.
Think you may have to buy software Lyn to combine thread changes. Get in contact with a Brother dealer. They will answer your question.
Hi,Debbie. I haven't been on this board for a while. Had problems following the new format when admin changed a few yrs back. How are you? I still pray for you.
Sorry, having problem with uploading pic.
Great job, well done.

I really love your prints you used. Especially the white with gray print. Looks like a fun block to make.
Mjvater, it sounds like your stitch length regulator is the problem. The QBOT moves the carriage, so it sounds like it's working as it should (you said the machine keeps moving). The regulator works with the needle. Check those little wheel-y things! Hope you get it figured out. Cheers, Eli
