    I am so excited in 6 more days I will have my studio back (long story). In the process what i am wanting to have is a cutting table.

I am looking at something for a person who is almost 6ft tall. Currently i am using the tables that are meant for outside. I like the lenght not keen on ...

    After 1 1/2 yrs. my son and DIL,s wedding quilt is finally done and delivered. It took me almost that long to figure out how to post pics on this site!! LOL! It is machine pieced and hand quilted. For the first time it used the "quilt as you go method", quilting each square and them sewing them together as I have no space to lay out a queen size quilt. I have named this quilt Dresden Garden since it is a combination of Dresden Plate and Garden Path. The quilt is reversible with White ...

  5. Back Home, Again!

    Well, I am back home again. My husband and I spent the holiday weekend at our beach house. I was able to spend today quilting with my friends in town (before heading back to the Valley).

    I am new to longarm quilting and they have been keeping me supplied with quilts to practice on. I returned one to them, was thinking how great it was to be down to five and then they send another one home with me.

    I am heading back over in a few days and my goal is to get one quilt per ...

    to help make my decision to take the plunge??? The owner stated no problems - she is the original
    owner and has had it for 2 years.
  8. Vintage Sewing Machine Shop.....Come on in and sit a spell

    To remove the screw from ejector bar, you will have to gently turn the screw counter clockwise. Since you were able to remove wick without removing screw, you have two opinions now. You can try to remove screw to clean it up, or you can leave it. If it looks like it doesn't want to come out because of dirt and rust, try soaking it in oil for some time. If you decide to leave it just screw the wick into the screw.

    I know that you most likely want that cleaned up too since you are very ...

I changed the center square in my light Ohio Stars because I wanted more red in my quilt, I think it gives it a nice pop, and boy are there many seams in this quilt! Pressing takes time to get every seam to
