Hi I have a janome 6600 I keep getting eye lashes on the back I have changed needles 3 times, gone through all weights of thread tried adjusting my tension and cleaning it just in case there was any lint but nothing helps can anyone help
I have pieced the Labrynith Walk Quilt and would like to quilt it. What would be your suggestions, stitch in the ditch or an all over pattern?
Recently I made a baby blanket out of minky fabric where I sewed a ruffle to the top fabric, then put the right sides of the fabrics together and sewed around leaving a little space to turn the fabric so the right sides are to the outside. When I turned the fabric around, I am not sure why I get some bulk/pucker on the top fabric. The bottom side is tight. I put lots of pins in to keep everything tight before I sewed, but still end up with some puckers on the top fabric. Just wondering if there
I'm a novice quilter. I need some advice I purchased a 12 panel- Michael Miller Flower Fairy Fabric. I cut out one of the panels 6.25X8.25- I would like to frame it and make corresponding block to go with it for a baby quilt . I need suggestions on the best dimension to frame the piece so then I can make the other squares. I not sure to make a 9in- or a 12 in block!

So this past weekend I picked up a treadle base complete with a Singer 66 which I found locally on craigslist. I've already learned so much, like I should have removed the machine head from the base before loading into the back of my car. And it would have helped if we loaded it with the drawers facing up rather than down. I probably should have wrapped the whole thing in the blanket that I left by my front door. That being said, I now have it all set up in my family

My latest acquisition...a Singer 15. Funny thing is during the online auction I thought I was buying a machine without the foot pedal. When I went to pick her up yesterday, I met the owner and said it was a shame that there was no pedal with it but figured I could find one online. He told me to hold on a minute, went back into the house, and came out with the matching pedal. Said he had just came across it recently after the auction pictures had been taken. It was my lucky day! Now to find some

So a shout out and thanks to JennR8R for her tutorial on a scrappy log cabin pattern thread named, "Turning 2.5" Scraps into a Log Cabin Block" posted on 2/16/2016. I used her pattern
