  1. Hundreds of old neckties... Are they any good for small quilts? for men?

    by , 03-16-2014 at 06:39 PM
    These ties are amazing! Made of silk, wool, acetate, cotton, polyester, even knits.. These might be useful for quilts, right? A friend makes quilts for the homeless, so I'll ask her if she wants them after they're washed.. The grubbiest ones will be tossed into File 13...

    A few have famous names on them, but I don't expect they're worth anything now..

  4. Top thread keeps breaking

    by , 03-16-2014 at 10:51 AM
    We have a Tin Lizzie Ansley26. All of a sudden the top thread keeps breaking and shredding. We have changed the needed multiple times. Re-threaded the machine as well. Checked that the needle is in properly. Changed thread back to the thread that WAS working wonderfully - but not now. Any thoughts???
  5. Strips

    by , 03-16-2014 at 06:26 AM (Strips)
    I bought a package of 2 1/2" stonehenge strips. I started working on a quilt and cutting what I needed, sewed it together and nothing was matching up the way it should be. I thought I was measuring wrong but when I started to measure the strips, some are 2 1/2" and some are 2 1/4". What would you do? Should I take this mess back to the store and get a refund? Not sure they will do that as I have cut a dozen of the strips already. So frustrating!!!*
