    I have been shopping to purchase a longarm quilting machine. It's for personal use only. I am SO overwhelmed and confused on the best purchase. I need feedback on Handi Quilter and Gammill. I want the computerized machine. Thanks so much

  2. Crystal Quilter

    by , 05-16-2018 at 05:50 AM
    I have found a Crystal Quilter on a Magic frame for a reasonable price, but the lady can not find the manual for the machine. Could someone tell me who the manufacture of this machine is?

  3. Slow but Sure

    by , 05-14-2018 at 05:22 AM (Applique in Blogosphere)
    The guild show was this past weekend along with Mother's Day which is always hectic. I co-chaired the raffle baskets and learned that I hate doing the plastic coverings! They seemed to be popular though and when the reckoning is done I'll let you know which ones did best and other interesting details which may help other show planners. We had our first real organized demos and for kicks I did a two hour make and take with fusible applique. That is the average time it takes to make a piece but may ...

  4. What material for FMQ Practice

    I use double thicknesses of muslin to try a new design or thread. These are usually about the thickness of my fabric I will work on. I use the fabric of my quilt if I have scraps...that way I know for sure how ...

  5. hand-embroidered quilts

    by , 05-02-2018 at 03:19 PM
    I like to embroider as much as I like to quilt. I've often thought of incorporating some of my hand-embroidery into a quilt, but since I've never seen it done here I'm wondering if anyone else does it, or if it is just too tricky.

  6. New Digs

    I left the Quilt Museum at the end of 2017. Not sure what direction To go in, but ready for a change.
    I stumbled onto a notice for an open studio at the Brush Art Gallery just across the courtyard from the Lowell National Park Visitor Center. I had given up on a studio there years ago after finding out that the majority of the artists spend 20+ years in a studio and there are only about a dozen available. My mother would say they are as scarce as hens teeth.
    Checked them out and submitted ...

  7. Replacing tracks on GMQ wooden quilting frame

    by , 04-23-2018 at 03:16 PM
    I purchased a GMQ with a Husqvarna Mega Quilter mid arm but after getting the frame level and upgrading the carriage it still doesn't flow smoothly. I contacted the Grace company to see about replacement tracks but they no longer have tracks for the frame I have. I have seen where people have used cold rolled steel rods but I can't figure out how I could do that because the trough that the track sets in is approximately 1 inch wide. Can anyone give me some suggestions on what I can do?
