  1. Hello from the Pacific Northwest

    by , 11-25-2019 at 04:22 PM
    Hello everyone,

    I just found this page and it looks like fun. I've been quilting for over 40 years. I am a librarian and I'm planning for retirement so I'm buying a long arm machine. I'm looking forward to smiling a lot more often!

    Is anyone here from the East side of Washington state?

    Been using them for years, always very good service. My local shops typically don't carry the Kona Solids I want, so I get them there. I like and recommend their scrap packs for stash building.

  3. Bernina 750 QE

    by , 11-20-2019 at 06:33 PM
    I have an opportunity to purchase a 5 year old 750QE with embroidery module. Local Bernina store has no classes. Anyone know if these machines are too complicated without classes? I have never embroidered. I have a 440 QE so I am familiar with Bernina but its 10 years old. Any idea of what I should pay for this machine with module? Would appreciate any comments!

  6. Trouble with my Tin Lizzie

    by , 11-12-2019 at 05:16 PM
    I haven't used my Tin Lizzie in awhile. I'm fine sewing from L to R, but it won't work going from top to bottom. I've oiled the machine and checked everything, but still not working.

    I accidentally put my batting on the wrong way and I have pokies on the back or tiny white dots from the batting is there a fix for this.
