    I bought my 2nd Elna at a quilt show. I buy patterns and some material that I can't live without.

    I found one of those metal tiny scissors and needle tenders with the magnets on the back. I just love it! Saves me from searching for my needles.

    Good question, Jan. I bought a beautiful square solid oak quilting frame , adjustable floor model and used it a couple of times. Loved it, but now I have some physical limitations and can no longer use it. Would love to sell it to make room for my "stuff" I am trying to use up before my departure time.... I paid $425 for it and would like to redeem some of that, but doubt any one would pay that much.... It was custom made. So, It was a good buy, not like the EQ7 which I did not like or use.
    By the way, I always enjoy your posts and would love to have you for a neighbor!! You are a wise lady!! ();-)

    My HQ 16. I love it and use it all the time. I purchased it at the Dallas quilt show 5 years ago.

    My Big Board - I do like it a lot! It's on my ironing board ALL the time. I was not and still am not happy with the cover that I bought for it. It was cut very very skimpy.

    I mentioned this in the post for worst purchase but I'll repeat here, my BEST purchase actually best two purchases are the Martelli Round About cutting board..it's like a brooklyn revolver only 16 in. across...it's a dream when cutting out triangles especially. And I love the Martelli rotary cutter.

    And then the prize-my Horn cutting and sewing table. I came across it at a quilt show and while it was no bargain, it was perfect for my needs and is big enough to both cut on one side and sew on the other with a sewing machine insert so I can push my machine down and out of the way if I need to spread a large piece of fabric out on the top. They no longer make the model or they made a smaller variation. I like/need the larger.

    I just bought the clover clips and I'm going to be using them often. Turned the binding on a quilt and held it with the clips...it really was nice not to draw blood as I was sewing...no pins to stick me.
    And speaking of pins...I LOVE Pinmoors!! I use them when basting my quilts instead of safety pins...fantastic product.

    I bought a small clipper to use on my neck and know what???? IT WORKS FINE FOR REMOVING STITCHES. It cost approx. $10 at Freds. I absolutely love it and would have never thought of using it except for seeing someone here on the Board post a pix of the Quicker Ripper which looks almost exactly like my neck clipper.

The Euro iron puts out tons of steam but the sole plate isn't hot enough to burn anything. Awesome iron.
    This must be the iron I was debating whether to get or not at the Madison show this fall. I will be tempted to get it in Houston (if I see it there) but I will have to carry it on the plane for the trip home.
    One of the things I got in Madison last year that I really love is my quilting gloves. They are called Grabaroo's. They are purple and fit my hands so nicely and are great at gripping fabric. I want to get another pair to have on hand incase these ever wear out.
