Does anyone have experience with the octi hoops. I need help. I would perfer talking on the phone if possible, I do better.... I tell my husband I am old and chatting on the phone is better. I could call on my dime and promise not to talk for ever.

I will definitely do another QAYG because it is easier dealing with quilting a square as opposed to the entire quilt, but I won't do each square individually - I'll do it in strips. Now I've got to get fabric to make matching pillow cases next week.
OK I have it bad, I was just watching e-bay and there were no bids on this white signer 221, so it ended and as I was just looking at all the 221's up comes this same machine for $200. $99. less than it was listed before, and don't ya just know my finger hit the buy it now with one click button!!
Oh dear, now where to put it, I have the other 5 girls lined up along the long wall in my studio, all on treadle tables, then one of my Pfaff 7570's in a sewing cabinet. My other 3 Pfaff
2 months ago I couldn't even thread a machine..Today I am very proud of myself to say I just completed my 11th quilt..
well yesterday my newest 221 arrived, such a little cuttie! Now to think of a name for her. She makes a wonderful addition to my collection. And she runs so smoothly, she just purrs. I think I will take her to my sit and sew day, Wed. She looks even smaller than the other girls as the flip up part of the bed is smaller than the other ones.
One of my black 221's had to go to the shop to be serviced, the motor was running rather sluggish, so I took her in to have a nice cleaning and grease
This is for quilt i am making, but really don't know what pattern to do .
I have been asked to make a wall hanging from horse show ribbons. Has anyone made one? I could use some tips such as; should I use the flip and sew method to make fabric blocks? Should I use batting or not? Or should I place the ribbons face up on a fabric square and overlapping the edges and sew in place (might be less puckering this way). Do I have to watch the temp of the iron because it might pucker the ribbon and melt the lettering? Ribbons have not arrived, yet so just thinking in advance.
Dear Ladies I am looking for a pattern or video on how to make a denium Back pack. Can you please help me.
I am on the hunt for Betty Boop Fabric. If anything has any for sale they could message me at email@example.com. Much appreciated.
