    Hope you like them.

    I guess I will have to do the Hunter's Star in a separate post.

  3. Singer Quantem Futura

    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. I do have the program on my old computer but I want to use it on my laptop. Does anyone know how to help? I am currently looking for a position however, until that time comes I will not pay the money Singer is requesting. Any ideas?
  4. When you spring clean, think of me!

    by , 04-03-2013 at 01:37 AM
    Never in a MILLION years, did I think I'd be sewing, much less actually be good at it. I was always terrified of sewing machines!
    Nine months ago, a van pulled out in front of us when we were on our motorcycle and my life was turned upside down. He walked away with cuts and bruises, I broke my left shoulder blade, my right shoulder, tore my rotator cuff, mild traumatic brain injury, concussion, slipped discs in my neck, tore my hip ligament.. Suddenly at 30 years old, I was on a walker and ...

  7. Satin Binding

    by , 04-02-2013 at 12:54 PM
    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.

    One 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?
