It has been many years since I needed fusible interfacing, so I don't know which to purchase.

The love of these dogs for their master is incredible, if you donít happen to like dogs, youíll love the music. Trust me!
This was done at the Crufts Dog Show last October.
It is great - watch all the way to the

Change the needle... some times we hit pins or sometimes people pull the material through the machine and the needle bends. Sometimes needles get dull? When was the last time it was changed?
Look at your upper thread. Is it catching on the little notch on the spool?
Turn it over and see if that helps...
Some times the wrong thread can be a problem.
can anyone tell me the best way to sew diamonds together
Has anyone upgraded to the new POM wheels and track for their HQ Avante? I am wondering if it made a big difference in the movement of the machine.
Thanks for any feedback.

Well I have been thinking about doing some blogging. its been a lot of water under the bridge these past two years. I have dealt with a husband having his work actually knocked out from under him. a daughter living with us and taking over my home. and i let her because of all i was dealing with. A DGS that we raised get into trouble which tore my heart in two. A DGD that we raised that was upset that we lt her mother live in our home while I was still dealing with the other three stories.
