    Karen,
    I am truly sorry the email you sent to me went to my
    spam folder for some reason and I never realized it until
    I saw your message here.

    That is when I went on the search for it and found it hiding.

    I sent you a reply.

    A question for all of you who have embroidery machines.

    Do you or have you ever used a product called "hoop grip"?

    I bought some when I got my new machine last month (Jan)
    and now I swear I will NEVER use my emb. hoops again without
    it.
    It keeps the stabilizer and fabric from slipping when hooping and
    will also keep it snug while hopped and emb. is working.

    Do a google search for hoop grip by "Bear Thread Designs, Inc."

    Nope. Haven't had slipping problem. I think that Nancy Zeiman -- or someone -- recommended wrapping the hoop with that clear plastic tape used in garments for hanging. Might try that since I have some that I was going to use with veils, but ... you cannot sew through this stuff. The stitches just fall out!

    Thanks, Louise! I have two 4x4's, one 5x7, one mega hoop, one tiny hoop.
    By the way, has anyone sewn with that clean plastic stretchy tape? I thought it would be really great to use for making headband veils for toddlers and girls, but I cannot get it to sew! The needle goes through it just fine, but there are no stitches! And, of course, I bought a ton of it. There must be a way to sew with it since you see it inside dresses all the time.

    so i ordered two different sets of fabric squares off ebay from the same seller. the first combined mailing the seller possibly did not seal the poly envelope carefully so i received an empty package, stamped so by the post office. i contacted the seller regarding this and she promptly sent me a replacement order. i got the replacement order and it was not what i ordered. only half of the order was correct. so again i contacted the seller and she promptly agreed to send me the correct order and to keep the incorrect one as a gift. so i checked and the 2nd replacement order is in the mail on its way.

    now i sell on ebay and i know that sometimes things can go awry with an order. i know i do my best to get it all correct and shipped promptly. but i cant help but wonder what happened with this seller. she sells a lot of fabric squares and fabrics so i know things can get mixed up. but to mail a package and not make sure its sealed, i dunno. its possible. and to get the replacement order mixed up when all she needed to do was take some time to get it right this time. i even asked that she put a extra bit of tape on the package flap just to make sure i received no more empty envelopes, which the seller did.

    now she is having to send a second replacement order because the last one was incorrect. so let's say she mailed merchandise three times now for one single order. i am certainly feeling some compassion for her and now i want to send her something for all of her troubles. on the surface i know that this is a business and if this happened to me, i would have cut my losses and refunded the customer money. my stuff is more high dollar than fabric squares so i could not have done this. but i believe she probably has some sort of mark by my name now cause she will remember me.

    ooh i would be remiss if i do not acknowledge the wonderful rak i received from holice recently. she sent me a big bag of fabric squares for postage. i am so appreciative holice for your generosity. as holice teaches quilting classes she had lots of fabric squares from leftover quilt kits. every last one of them will be used.

    RAK alert!!!!!!!!!

    Either tomorrow or Monday there will be an RAK leaving
    CO and headed somewhere else in the U.S. won't say in
    which direction it is heading.

    Also a couple days ago (Wednesday I think) mailed out
    2 fabric postcards. One for someone in the U.S. and one
    for someone in another country.

    Be on the lookout.

    I forgot to say that I mailed a little something to someone on Tuesday. I don't know how long it will take to get where it is going. It is going out of the USA.

    I am so behind in posting pix and I really apologize. I got my camera out today and was ready to go and then .... couldn't find two of them!

    Everything is more than a little upside down here since I started to do lace inventory. And then, to make matters worse (in terms of mess anyway) my future DIL, Jaunty Melissa is finally free from her lease and decided to move her bed here. In an attempt to get the box spring up the stairway in our teeny tiny cottage, lots of stuff was moved around and -- not naming names -- not put back!!! So double, triple, quadruple mess. *sigh* And, sadly, no matter what the terrible mess making trio (DH, DS and FDIL) did, it would not fit up the stairs and was tossed out. AND ... my son tossed his futon and frame out and it was picked up for scrap immediately so the new comfy mattress is on the floor. For now.

    Anyway ... many thanks to our darling Greenini for the wonderful squishy chock full of delightful bias tape in holiday patterns (never knew they came like that!) and tons of selvage trimmings! I guess I'm going to have to make something wonderful from them! Thank you, sweetie.

    And my other darling RAKers ... I will post as soon as I unearth! (If I live that long)
