I bought all they had, and will use it up this way.
I save my scraps but sometimes the scraps are really in strange shapes and sizes
What machines have an automatic reverse that doesn't have to be held down while stitching?
Hi all, while I have been a lurker up until now I know that you all can help me figure this out.
I purchased a "floor model" 5 foot quilting frame from a local Bernina dealer and really feel like I have been ripped off. I asked the dealer about the ease of setting up and was told that it was just a matter of putting in 4 screws on either side, that it came in 2 flat boxes that would store under the bed and the footprint was approx. 5'x4'. I was asked to wait until it could be

Instead of bread - make oppsie bread instead YUMMMMM
Will you have a hard time living without bread? Ooopsies are a good option. It’s a “bread” without carbs and can be eaten in a variety of ways.

Anyone out there stupid like me and doing the Dear Jane blocks? A good friend talked me into doing this and now she isn't even working on it and I am on row C. I doubt these blocks will ever get finished in my life time. I only hope my kids will see all the work I have put into these tiny blocks and maybe one of my daughter-in laws will finish them or one of my quilting friends will inherit them and they will not end up in the trash. I have a big pile of fabrics and keep getting more for this

Better yet, does anyone have one they'd like to sell? Thank you.

I am trying to learn to appliqué. And thought I would try to to do a couple of simple designs. Maybe a butterfly? Or flower? Since I have never appliquéd I would like a big block that I could maybe turn into a baby quilt.
I inherited a vassar treadle sewing machine and was told it's from the late 1800's. I've research sewing machines and cannot find anything on the "Vassar" brand. Thanks!
I was recently given this machine as a gift, but it came with no instruction manual. This is my first machine, and my first project is a block quilt. Since there is minimal information online, I thought I would post the very basic things I've come gotten worked out. I'll start with how to thread the machine. There are pictures for each step.
1)Put the thread on one of the posts, unwinding to the left and behind. (It may not matter if it is to the left and in front, but I haven't
