  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  6. finished long arming my first bed size quilt--whew!

    by , 09-20-2013 at 05:34 PM
    This week I finally finished long arm quilting my first full size bed quilt--had been doing lap quilts and crib quilts since I got my Gammill. It was a good/bad experience--loaded fine, tension great, like some of the custom quilting design I did on the open areas, satisfied with my choice of thread and happy with background quilting. Not so pleased with the end design I used on the pieced blocks--just don't have the skills yet to match my vision. I know--practice, practice,practice. But I ...

    Ok, we are doing a challenge to just enjoy our own work. There is no shipping, you can use up scraps, no requirements on what to make. We just want to see how each person interprets the theme.

    2. Make a small item: table runner, mug rug, wall hanging, tote bag, mouse pad, etc.
    3. DO NOT ...
