    This is when you use the search button that is at the top of the page. A box opens when you click search........you print what you want and there you go. It will list pages where this is discussed.good luck :P

    1. you look like a cutie pie to me. :P

    1a. don't be embarrassed. i think it's wonderful of you to ask how. :P

    2. if you want to see whether or not we've already talked about something, go to the top of the menu, right under the title "Quilting Board - ". you'll see the word "search" and a little magnifying glass. click on the word "search". there'll be a blank box. a few key words into the box the computer can look for in the posts. then click on the "search" button next to the box.

    if the search doesn't bring up posts that answer your question, ask the question again.
    if you read answers you don't understand, ask again. (we can be quite confusing at times. LOL)
    if the search brings up bazillions of post and you're overwhelmed, ask again.

    a really good way to ask again might be to pick one of the threads that talked about it before, and add your question to the posts. doing that will bring that topic back to first page of the list. we can use it to quickly refresh our memories about what we've already said and how we presented the information. things that confuse one person are crystal clear to a lot of other people and vice versa. sometimes we have to take turns trying to explain something in a way that makes sense to everybody who wants to know.

    doing the search is also a good idea because sometimes, while looking for one thing, you'll stumble across another idea or subject that's new and exciting. it's like going in search of one specific piece of jewelry and finding others you forgot you had. :P

    no matter what ... don't go away without the answer to your question. or without saying "hello". :wink: :P

    that's a juicy one. lots of different opinions around here. if you don't find enough info, start a new thread (topic) with "invisible thread ... HELP!!!" in the title. that'll bring a bunch of folks in to share. :P

    I just know people will scream in horror when they hear that the pansy quilt that I just finished was quilted in invisible thread. I don't know where I got the thread, but it worked just fine in my machine. Just loosen the tension a little and back stitch a little to lock your stitches and away you go! I had so many different colored flowers in each block, that it would not have been possible to do it any other way. sometimes I just barely caught a petal or a piece of the basket, I am not a very careful sewer, but with anything else, I would have had to rip, and I was on a tight deadline. With the invisible thread, it never even showed. Unless it was a major goof, no ripping happened. My aunt loved it and no one else's opinion really mattered but hers since it was her gift.

    I used invisible thread to hold down the appliques that I just did too. I never would have done it if I had to change my thread for every different color. I thought about doing a blanket stitch on my machine in black or dark brown, but there were way too many small curves and angles. Invisible was the only way for me to get it done, so that was the right thing to do.

    I've used invisible to quilt as well, and never thought anything of it. So far those quilts are still in one piece.

    Steve, if ya hold your tongue juuuusssst right...LOL

    I've used invisible to tack my applique down when I'm going to be using a blanket stitch (by hand). But otherwise, I've never used it on a quilt. I don't see why it wouldn't hold up just fine when used to machine quilt. :)

    I did my mom's quilt in 1999 using invisible thread and it is still holding up. In fact, while I was there last weekend, I washed it and dried it in the dryer and it is still in one piece :lol: It looked so pretty on the bed, I wished she'd leave it out instead of sticking it back in the closet :!:

    The Recent Topics link under - The Quilter's in the heading is a good quick way too. Bookmarks are good too
