Step 1: Prepare freezer paper square. Draw the circle in the center. Make sure

I have a Singer Quantum Futura CE200. I have lost the original CD. I called Singer and they want $100.00 for a new installation CD.

Hope you can help with this....I have a request for a baby blanket and they want double batting with satin blanket binding. Anyone have any suggestions as to how I keep the satin binding even on each side since the sandwiched material and batting are so thick? I have a walking foot and tried it with that but still seems to get off track while sewing the binding on. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance for the help.
Quilting RetreatsOne week from today I will be madly packing my supplies and suitcase to attend our annual Quilting Retreat in Lititz, PA. I
am happy to report that there has been a very excited and happy flurry of emails and instant messages between the attendees talking about what to pack, where to
go, when to meet up and how busy they are planning their final preparations for this gathering.
We all look forward to the event from the date it is planned
I own a Janome 6600 sewing machine. Did any other owner of same machine have a problem with the bobbin case? After using the scissors on the machine my bobbin case jumps out. Could it be that the bobbin case has been worn down?
