Some of the fabrics didn't felt, so were left out.

    The leaves were traced from ones I collected

  3. Brother pe770 .pes version?

    by , 04-20-2014 at 01:58 PM
    I have had my pe770 for about a year now and have successfully purchased and downloaded many .pes type embroidery designs. Yesterday I tried to purchase one only to find thatmy machine would not recognize the .pes. When I sent a query to the software provider, he informed me that there are NINE .pes versions and that I needed to know which one I had. He further explained that I needed to update my machine to accept the newest version. I went through a Brother software upgrade, but I still couldn't ...

  4. old singer machine

    by , 04-20-2014 at 06:05 AM
    I am looking for an older metal singer sewing machine, or other brands, to do heavy sewing. I am wanting to do purses with upholstery fabric or outdoor fabrics with stabilizer as a backing and the newer sewing machines just do not work. I have a featherweight and it just sometimes just not strong enough. Any suggestions??? I really do not want to spend an arm and a leg for one.

  6. Older Tin Lizzie NON-Computerized

    by , 04-18-2014 at 08:28 PM
    I purchased an older non-computerized Tin Lizzie at an Estate Sale with from it is beautiful and I am in love! Especially being a beginner. However my big down fall is it didn't come with a manual. I have searched high & low for one with no success. My last straw is to call Tin Lizzie BUT being a newbie I am scared to death to talk to them as to can I answer the questions that they need to know. Al I can find on the machine is Model# Cat#, I also know it's not computerized & has a phone ...

  7. My 1st Quilting Inspiration

    by , 04-18-2014 at 03:08 PM
    .
    My Husband was in the military and he was deployed overseas in 2006. For his return from deployment I wanted to make him something crafty. I wanted it to be something I had not done before and something that would challenge me.

    My grandmother and great grandmother were both quilters. If a new baby was coming or born they got a quilt... Sweet 16 get a quilt, get married get another quilt. I got my 1st quilt from my great grandmother but dragged it around to its demise probably

I did 9 rows of 7 blocks, plus the extra half-block border that completes the points. Haven't decided on a quilting pattern yet, but I'm tossing around an idea. Thanks for looking!

  9. New to Quilting

    by , 04-15-2014 at 10:23 AM
    Hi! I am new to quilting. I have helped my grandma sew stamped embroidered blocks, but haven't really done anything else before. My grandmother has made the most beautiful quilts by hand (all of it by hand) and I am wanting to continue this tradition in my family. First project was a monkey quilt for my son... that I started two or three years ago. I know I know- I still haven't gotten all the blocks done... sheesh. I am getting back into it and hoping to finish this fall. Though, it has been ...

    You don't need to be old to remember that trick. I don't rip fabric but that is one way my mother taught me.

    If you don't like ripping, she also taught me to pull threads and then cut along the line it makes. Find a thread along the line you want to cut. At the edge of the fabric you pull it up with a straight pin and
