    Here are left sides 9, 10 & 11. The "melon seed" at the top of #11 is the worst thing in the world to sew well! If you do this block, be sure to use a very tight weave of fabric. Its real work to try getting the ends to tuck under - hence, my thanks again to the makers of Fray Check. I like the quilt to be authentic,

  2. Christmas Tree Skirt Tutorial

    First of all, you will need the correct ruler. I use Marilyn Doheny's 9 degree circle wedge ruler. In order to get a circle, you will need 40 wedges. I've also seen a 10 degree ruler at my LQS. If you use that ruler, you would need 36 wedges for your circle.

    You will need a total of about two yards

  4. Question about the Bernina Artista 180 Embroidery Machine

    by , 10-02-2012 at 12:55 PM
    I haven't really imported any embroidery patterns and since my machine was bought in the last 90's it doesn't even have a USB port on it

    Does anyone know if there is some sort of other attachment for it so I can import patterns

    Thanks a bunch

  7. White Rotary Sewing Machine #3

    by , 10-01-2012 at 01:07 PM
    Looked on the ismacs website and got a phone number to call for information on White's. I called and talked to "Reba" - she told me my machine was made in 1929 in Cincinnati, Ohio - the number on the machine (under the motor) is the model and serial number. Model Number 1X, serial number 1q357.

    Still looking for more information and parts.

    A perfect sewing day for me, starting early with my coffee and staying in my jammies til the mood hits me to get dressed. If it does. No laundry, no cooking, no

  10. Longarm Issues - Encoder

    by , 09-30-2012 at 10:19 PM
    My husband and I spent yesterday in a class learning how to do maintenance on my Gammill. It was a long day, but I feel like we learned a lot and I know that I am not as afraid of the machine as I was before.

    However ... I loaded a quilt on the machine today and could not get the darn thing to work in regulated mode. It worked great in manual (I'm not very good at keeping stitches even so I don't usually use this - will definitely need to practice). I was SICK!
