Bonjour fellow quilters!
My friend and I would like to start a patchwork circle for our church members, which isn't very commonplace here in France. Can anyone give suggestions or a personal experience? How are they organized? Are the blocks/panels inspired by a particular Bible passage discussed while sewing? Are the finished articles displayed in the church, given to charity, sold for offering? Merci!
I'm looking for a bobbin case for this old Viking. I believe it to be an Eaton's (Canadian department store) machine. Does anyone have any information that can help me locate a bobbin case and extra bobbins? Here is a photo of his charming self and a photo from the original manual. The manual says he is a Viking series 825 and his serial number is 679-5115 C2 (the 2 is smaller and inside the C).
Thank you in advance for any information you can provide.
trying to upload pictures.

Someone mentioned the Thimblelady method; her book is called 'Perfect Hand Quilting without Pain' by Liuxin Newman. The method is similar, but uses a thimble that fits down on the finger, and eliminates all of the hand stress associated
