My son came into a PFAFF 332-6. I have been using a 38 year old Montgomery Wards sewing machine and found the PFAFF to be a beautiful piece of engineering.
Since it is a 1950's model, does anyone have a breakdown of the various PFAFF's (built in Germany) model numbers and features, starting wtih the 332?
What is the difference between the Hobby and Tipmatic machines?
Is there some definitive source to find answers to these and other questions?
Yesterday my daughter and I traveled to Blooming Prairie for their city wide rummage sale event - not looking for anything in particular. I found an old Corning perculator coffee pot for a dollar and just had to bring it home - deal of the day.
I'm sitting here this morning checking out posts on QB and enjoying a cup of fresh perc'd coffee - yummo - far better than the fresh drip.

I have begun using primarily wool batting because I like the almost trapunto look it gives when the background is densely quilted. I am wondering if a thinner thread or a thicker thread will help to emphasize that effect.

I have seen several dessert and/or cake recipes that use it.
I had to google it. Found out it's dulce de leche. I guess "danger pudding"
would be an appropriate name if you did it the dangerous way.
Personally, I enjoy condensed milk on its own...yum. LOL
Haven't had it in years.

For that one I cut 2" strips out of my background and focus fabrics and sewed about 24" together. I then cut these joined strips into 2" sections for the 4-patch and the rectangles that join them. It was a simple matter to sew 2 of the rectangles into the center square, sew (2) 4-patch

Im in the middle of getting all my supplies and fabrics together for a diaper bag for my sister. She's having a baby girl any day now. So im kinda in a hurry to figure this out. So I go to my usual local joann's and get everything and i get to the cutting table and ask whats quilters fleece they dont know nothing about it. Ive googled it cant get a direct answer on it either. So maybe one of yall can help me out and where I can get it. Thanks.
I am new to this, but my friend recommended it to me. I need help of the Pointless Wonder pattern. I have the pattern, it details the cuts but not what fabric to move to the top or bottom after the cut. Can anyone help me with this? Thanx
Most of us buy fabric at Joann - right?
(Well, unless you don't)
And most of us have favorite employees who are really helpful.
Well, Ryan Rene is one of those people. She is a young lady who has taken her oath and is finishing her qualifications in broadcast journalism for a stint in the US Air Force.
I had an idea that I thought it would be a fabulous show of support by quilters from across the country. If you are so inclined, I would like to invite
