  1. Walking Foot

    by , 02-02-2013 at 07:48 AM
    I ordered a walking foot for my Singer Simple® yesterday. My model # wasn't listed but one of the reviews stated she uses it on hers. I have so much to learn about sewing/quilting on a machine.

    I'm having the same problem, pseudoquilter. I sew about 2 feet on a straight seam, then hear the "clunk" and see a lot of threads in the bobbin area. I cleaned all the gunk around the bobbin area and rewound another bobbin. What I have done since has ...

    I am new to the quilting community, but I am having a ball. The one thing I need help with is the quilting itself. I have 6 tops made and I am looking for someone to quilt them. Anyone out there? I currently reside in Stuttgart Germany, and will be here for 2 years. I am also looking for a nice fabric shop. Hope to hear from anyone out there.

  10. need needle advice

    by , 02-01-2013 at 07:10 AM
    I am relative new to quilting and am looking for advice on sewing machine needle size. Do you use the same needle to piece and to quilt? What size do you use? How often do you change your needle? Can overuse of a needle cause problems with thread tension? Thanks!
