    Hi Rama, My favorite quilting tool is called a "Shape Cut". It is made by the June Tailor company. It is about a 16" square piece of plexiglass with slots every half inch. You put your rotary cutter in the slots and you can cut squares, rectangles, strips, hexagons, half square triangles and more. Because of its shape it does not tend to slip like a ruler does. I have had one of these for years and I show it to all the quilters who come into the store where I work. I love this tool. We sell them for around $36.00 in our store but I found the same thing at Walmart for about $17.00. this tool is worth it's weight in gold!

    Hi again! I you are buying a sewing machine to take to India, make sure the power source can be switched to either a 120 or 220 voltage. I don't know what wattage they use there but you need to make sure you will be able to use machine if you buy it over here. I like the Pfaff machines and I work for a Pfaff dealer. One thing I wouldn't do is to buy a machine from a "big box" retailer. If there is a problem with the macine due to shipping or whatever there will be no one to help you and you'll end up at a dealer to get it fixed. In our area this will cost you about $60.00. That will negate any savings you might have had when buying the machine. If you buy a machine from a reputable dealer (no matter what brand you buy) they will "sew out" the machine for you before you take it out of the store. If they won't do that I wuoldn't buy a machine from them. Hopes this helps you uot.

    Thank you Kim.I also thought of the voltage and I have dropped the idea of buying the machine here.I already have Fleetwood sewing machine.I will try quilting on that.If it does not work I will buy there itself.Your idea of after sale service will be there.

    I usually find the freezer paper on the bottom shel next to the heavy duty alumiun foil. Sometimes I have to look hard because the is similar to the foil. I get the big box with 150 feet.
