    you could also try Craigs list but you need to be very careful. always have someone else with you and always take cash. I a good experience selling a old sewing machine that way. FYI look up eBay valet, they are very picky about what they take.

    DianaLynn, thanks for your comment. It certainly sounds like you are doing well. I'd be thrilled if my husband wanted to quilt or something similar. He has weakness on his right side. You've given me an idea; perhaps I can encourage him to make a quilt. Using scissors would be great therapy. Wow, a 99-yr. old grandmother. You have your hands full. I'm surprised you have time for quilting. I know what you mean though about loving it. Keep up the good work, and thanks.

    I'm not sure where you are located but have you tried Etsy? It's an online site where people can sell things that they make. I know there are others who sell quilts on this site. It's reputable. Good luck!

    Thank you JustRetired! I appreciate you taking the time to help. I will check out ebay--I didn't know they had a valet service, so that would be a big help I think. There are medical and other bills that need to be paid, so it will help to get the most $ possible from the items. Again, thank you! - Janet

    Easiest way to sell them might be ebay. You can look at completed listings to see what similar items sold for, that will help you establish value in any case. Also, if you are in a town of any size there are usually selling services called ebay valet, they are professional authorized sellers on ebay that sell by commission, so they are motivated to get the best price. Might be easier than selling them yourself.

    I know what you mean, it was a good, strong vanilla flavor and came in a big bottle that was cheap! Have you tried making your own by soaking vanilla beans in vodka?

    Thank you for your response. I would like to get some of their wonderful vanilla for baking. I live in Tennessee and health issues do not allow me to make the trip.

    The puff quilt is not difficult at all! Essentially you create the quilt AND THEN "stuff the puffs". Let me find my pattern and I'll send it to you.

    Congrats on being able to get back to quilting. I'm sorry about your husband. I am a stroke survivor. In 1999 I had 3 strokes. It takes a lot to care for a stroke patient. Quilting is a big challenge for me. Especially cutting, since my left side is weak and only assists and sometimes not in a good way. But I loved quilting and refused to give it up completely. Now I'm a caregiver for my 99 year old grandmother who taught me to quilt. Happy Quilting!!!

    I used to do this, what kind of help do you need? Do you want to know the process? Or did you need something from Mexico?

    My mother washed a lovely red and white quilt with the same bleeding results and NOTHING helped. That was 30 years ago, maybe Colbaltjars62 has the modern solution(s). Mom just had to get used to a red and pink quilt. I know it's NOT funny, though. I hope you had luck.

    If the long arming gets slow you can set up for gastroscopy/colonoscopy procedures.

    Total EMPathy here and I can add shopping for 84 yo hubby who wears jeans below the belly (with suspenders, thank you Lord) and still wants to look like the cool cat he was in 1951.

    Hmmm, the springy thingy toward the top makes me think there is some pressure on the case. And the notch and protruding circle-cap-looking-thing on the left side make me think it could be moved up some how. Any chance the rust is holding it in place? Sorta looks like it should be able to move up and spin somehow to allow the bobbin to come out.

    Ok. I'm back & I decided to put removeable tabs on the quilt so the bride can remove the tabs if she wants to wash them & not the quilt. So 5 tabs later attached with 5 vintage buttons on the back of the quilt, I'm happy with the results. I tried to attach a picture but no-can-do. ;-0
