    by , 09-27-2013 at 08:45 AM
    Well I am home again from the Runaway quilter's retreat here in KY. Oh my what fun that was. met so many lovely ladies, and learned new things, gained weight, made several blocks, used my FW 221 and it worked great, will be using it a lot more now. Learned I so over packed, LOL learned what I do not need to take next time.
    Am still putting things away, and trying to clean up my studio, have to get it ready for my class Sat.
    The classes offered at the retreat were great, and I think ...

How many of you still head for your sewing room, even when you don't feel good?

    A couple of the strips show up as black in the picture, but they are burgundy.

  4. Quilters poem

    by , 09-25-2013 at 10:27 PM
    My life is but a quilting
    between The Lord and me
    i may not know the pattern he
    knows what it shall be.
    For he can see the quilting
    from the upper side, while i

    I can only see it from the underside.
    Sometimes he blocks in sorrow
    which seems so cruel to me,
    But I must trust his choices
    and go on painfully.
    It's god who chose the pattern and he knows what's
    best for me,
    So I must trust his judgement and go on ...

  6. Newbie to Embroidery machine

    by , 09-24-2013 at 05:37 AM
    I have been quilting since I was about 12, and decided almost a year ago to get a embroidery machine. Since I was new to it, I bought a refurbished Singer Futura, in case I didn't like it and... I love it!
    I have been using the program that came with the machine but it does very basic editing, rotate, flip kind of stuff. I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations on a editing software. Something easy to use and not extremely expensive.

    Photo 3 is the back. I used up the leftovers. Just made it.

  8. need help in identifying old sewing machine

    by , 09-22-2013 at 06:43 PM
    I recently cleaned out my parents house to sell and discover her old sewing machine. It would have been purchased in the 70s or 80s. The machine says Foley on it and the model # is 6200s. It looks to be in good shape, all metal, and does some embroidery stitches. Can anyone help me identify it? Thanks in advance for the help.
