The lady on the right is a recent widow. I've been teaching her quilting to keep her busy. She and a second friend spent the day at my house making a jelly roll race quilt. The lady on the left had terrible problems with her sewing machine until we changed thread. She had a spool of Sulky and her machine did not like it. Many thanks to all here on the board who have said their machines don't like certain threads. I would not have known how to help her if I hadn't seen it here. They didn't get quilt done but were both trilled at the start.
