    My DH decided I needed to upgrade my Tin Lizzie. I now have the Tin Lizzie 18 with the Lizzie Stitch. I'm going to love it. The stitches are sooo nice. I have a dunkard path quilt ready to quilt. Guess cooking and cleaning will take a second to playing with my new toy. Now I want to learn to do feathers. Does anyone have ideas on how to learn to do this?

    Wishing you the best with your new machine!

    I don't have a LA, but I think they make what's called "pantographs" you follow with the laser on yoor machine to trace/stitch the design out. Perhaps rewording your message title will get you more answers on this.

    I just ordered this setup...I can hardly wait. It will be arriving the last week of March. In the meantime, I'll paint out her new room and wait patiently. Congratulations on your upgrade.

    Contests, Ruby! I am green with envy. Tin Lizzie is my dream machine.

    Trying thinking "half a heart, half a heart", up one side, down the other is how they taught us in class. If you bauble a bit, you can echo around them and they still will be beautiful.
