    Howdy All - from AZ. You all sound like a great bunch of gals.
    If anyone has a Baby Lock Quilters Choice Professional on a frame, let me know if you are having any issues with LOTS of thread breakage. I have this set up and have had many problems with this but I was committed to figuring it out. About drove my husband nuts with my frustrations. Anyway, my frame is a new joy gold standard...I believe in sharing information so if you have the same problems I'd be glad to share what I would have paid a shop big bucks to figure out.

    BTW, what is a Bow Tuck?? never heard that one

    Welcome to the board from Southern California!!!

    A Bow Tuck is a purse/bag pattern that a lot of gals have made. Personally, I am not a "purse" person. I'd rather have pockets!!!!

    WOW sounds interesting. Im not a big purse person either, but Im interested to see what the bow tuck looks like.

    I have just started to learn needle turn applique. LOVE IT. Im hooked even though I havent even started a project. I just practiced with a few basic shapes.

    Anyone have any tips/tricks?

    Wow Germany...thats awesome. My son took 5years of german. He's very good at it. He and his girl actually got to go to Germany 3 years ago, he said he LOVED it there. What kind of quilting do you like to do?

    Thank you :) I had a third cousin who lived in Cedar Rapids. We went to visit...many moons ago when I was a girl. His house was a Sears and Roebuck kit that they build. GORGEOUS. Beautiful country.

    Hello and Welcome to the board :D:D:D

    I have read that many LA's are using a polyester thread for quilting now, due to having issues like yours with cotton :wink:
