I appreciate all these ideas! I have a friend who makes crumb quilts, and she gets those small pieces, but what I have here is really just slightly bigger than what goes in the thread catcher. Plus...

I, personally, have not found the fine round elastic holds up. I am using either the stretchy loops sold for kids to weave on a loom (about 8" cut), or strips cut from the width of old t-shirts, both...

Stitch width (not stitch length) not at zero can do that -- but I don't think there'd be a setting that close to zero -- I had a similar problem with a mechanical Pfaff and it turned out that the...

What do I do with small scraps?

I have been collecting scraps less than 1" or so but bigger than pure trash, thinking they would be useful for dog beds. But then I was told dogs chew thru the covers and choke on the scraps -- Is...

It says the finished quilt is 41" x 41", so the usual 42" of fabric selvege to selvege should work. I have a bad habit of not reading the directions beforehand, and once I cut the pieces for the top,...

Regarding tossing bobbins that didn't wind correctly, you could use the bobbin on the spool holder and just sew with the thread (rather than throwing away). Also, the only time I have made a mess...

Thanks for your ideas. I think the speed problem is in the foot control, but I sold the machine as-is.

I can still get the cartridges, but they are no longer being manufactured, so soon they will be even more expensive as they become more scarce. I am just wondering why this is happening.

Unhappy HP printer ink discontinued?

The only connection this has with quilting is that I print all the patterns I find on line, but I have been forced recently to see that HP is no longer manufacturing ink for my inkjet printer. These...

Thanks for the help -- I watched a few videos and think I can at least tension the belt now. I fear the lack of speed variation with the foot pedal is a separate issue.

Sewing speed tied to belt tension?

I am tuning up a Singer 237 (without much expertise), and we put a new foot pedal on it and cleaned it up, etc., and now it is sewing at one speed only (slow). Is this tied to belt tension?

When I first was quilting I bought poly batt that was too thick. My go-to now is 1/4" poly, as I love the way it drapes, and I am not a fan of too-dense quilting. I do not like spray baste, but put a...

We have a lovely lady who quilts charity tops for my quilt chapter. She chooses an all-over pattern and trims afterward, returning the scraps with the quilt to the maker. She does not bind the quilts.

I love these pens because of the fine point. I use chalk seldom, as the one I can see best is yellow and sometimes I can't get it 'out'. I found Frixion refills online at a fraction of replacing the...

I save them, too, but generally plan to incorporate them into lap-covering-size alzheimers quilts, where you can use lace and all manner of items that can be strongly affixed.

I have not used fleece or minky for a backing, but I would probably have tried "birthing" it. Since no one has mentioned that here, there must be a good reason not to do that.
