    I spent yesterday at the Sew Expo in Puyallup. I came home with a new Oliso Itouch iron, the TG 1600 - the yellow one just like what they use on Fons & Porter, and the Curver Master which is the attachment foot that you use to sew curved pieces like in the Drunkard Path and the double wedding ring just to name a few. Anyway I have been sewing with my curver master and pressing with my new itouch iron all day and I am a happy camper. I love both of them because they do work very nicely. The Curver master has a 1/4" guide on it as part of how it works but you can also sew just regular straight seams to with it. If you do any curve piecing I would strongly suggest this attachment. Or if you have been looking for a 1/4" guide or foot this would work for that as well. With the curve master you don't have to pin your pieces together so it is a time saver. Plus it was easy to do - it worked on the very first pieces that I tried. Anyway just thought I would share this two great toys that I got yesterday.

    Thanks,
    Sherryl

    Sherryl, I'm so happy for you!!
    It's so much fun to get new toys! :D:D
    That curvemaster- is it generic??
    Or is it for a specific machine?

    The curve master comes with 6 different shanks for all the different types of sewing machines and then it has one attachment foot that you click on to the shank. The shank is to position the foot so it is the right height and distance for the specific machines.

    Thanks,

    It also works on Pfaffs - that is what I have.

    Can someone post a picture of the curve master? I'm curious. Also, how much does a curve master run?

    Here are a couple of pictures of the curve master for you. The first one shows it while it was on my Pfaff. The others are after I took the shank off of my machine.

    Thanks,

    Sorry, but there wasn't anyone else there when I bought mine, it was probably around noon yesterday. It would have been nice to meet you there tho. I wondered a few times yesterday while I was walking around if there were any other quiltboard members there. I was by myself so it would have been fun to meet another member. So what kind of fun things did you find there?

    Thanks,
