  2. Quilting frames

    by , 03-09-2016 at 10:57 PM
    I have a Pfaff grand quilter machine. I would like to get a frame that I can use this machine on as well as a stitch regulator. I don't know a lot about frames, but size is important . I will not be quilting king size quilts, but would like something that would accommodate crib size to queen. Any advise would be greatly appreciated. I would like to keep it at around $2 to $2,500. I have been to different sites but am having trouble finding what machines go with what frames. Help!

    I figured out a technique for stippling/meandering that is working better for me, and I thought others who are struggling with this may be interested.

    I've been FMQing for awhile now and feel pretty good at feathers and other designs, but stippling has baffled me from the start! Apparently I am so "Left-Brained" that I just couldn't

  6. "You should use this fabric or color"...

    by , 02-29-2016 at 06:46 PM
    I'm new to quilting and went to a few local quilt stores to purchase fabric for a specific project. Even though I knew the person and the décor for the quilt I was making, the store owners/personnel kept telling/pushing me to fabric that they decided I needed. Very frustrating when all I wanted to do was shop the fabrics in the store. I've finally found 1 store that welcomed me to look thru their entire store and even pointed out the sale and clearance areas! I ended up buying several extra pieces ...

  9. Thread Problems on Vintage Machines

    by , 02-25-2016 at 04:50 PM
    I have recently acquired a Singer 201K23 to compliment my 401a and 1905 Model 28. All three machines sew like champs, but I do have a few little issues with the 201 & 401.


    1) On the new 201 and occasionally the 401a, when I finish a seam, raise the presser foot, and pull the fabric away, the top thread, bottom thread, AND an extra loop of top thread come along with the fabric.

    I was wondering if this has to do with tension problems or is something else and more ...

Didn't spend much time with the venders as I didn't have the $$$ to spend. Registered for the grand prize of an Alaskan quilting cruise in 2017 and to win a Janome machine. Fingers crossed. Show continues thru Saturday. I did see a friend that I play MahJongg with and two ladies from our small guild. Overall....glad I went.
