  1. Not to Happy with my Juki QVP 2200

    by , 11-22-2013 at 07:55 PM
    I've had issues with my machine since I got it. I got so frustrated I wouldn't even look at it for a few month. The Instruction Manual is horrible. There is no support or additional instructions or videos on Juki's website. I regret buying it and it isn't even paid for yet. Can anyone explain how to thread the bobbin winder guide? I can't tell by the picture in the Instruction Manual and refuse to deal with the shop I purchased it from. Thanks

It only works with .pes and only 4x4, 5x7, and 7x5, but hopefully more sizes will come later. There is a YouTube video to see how it works. I like it a lot for quick merging of letters for names., and I think it is

    Has anyone used the John Flynn method to make a DWR? I've used the Sharlene book & it seemed confusing. Is J.F. method easier, different, worse, better. Thanks

    Have been longarm quilting for a couple of years now. I have a Tin Lizzie machine. I would like to know how to take the quilt off and reload so I can do feathers around the borders. Is this difficult?
  9. Help !!

    by , 11-19-2013 at 06:36 AM
    Yesterday I upgraded my machine to a Husqvarna Viking ( a reconditioned machine). I felt I was comfortable with it, so I thought I would try to get my quilt basted (using basting spray) together and try to quilt the thing. However……. This machine had some stitching options and so I thought it would look nice to use the ivy looking stitching on the boarder of the quilt and I made a complete mess of it. I was not use to the machine and kind of jumbled it up in a few spots, had the tension too ...
  10. The Cursed Charity Quilt is done!

    by , 11-18-2013 at 10:42 PM
    Did 2 charity quilts last week--one was a quick panto--worked great. Tried that for the 2nd one--what a disaster! It was just not a square quilt and the panto took off on the diagonal. So stopped and proceeded to "unsew" about 10" x lenght of quilt, which took almost 2 days! Then started over with SID and some ruler work, plus feathers in the borders. Not my proudest work but it's done!

    Now it's time to work on some of my own Christmas stuff--a preprinted panel ...
