I think the two tools are equivalent. I don't have Esther Miller's tool, but I've tried Aunt Becky as well as the TJ Quick Quilter and a regular teaspoon. The tip of the spoon or ridge on the Aunt...

Yes, I've been rejected.

One time it was a technical reason - the quilt size was wrong. A couple of times my quilt was rejected the first time I applied, and accepted for the second time. And...

I've never done big stitch, but wouldn't a bigger needle and thicker thread automatically make your stitches bigger?

Good luck!

What works for one quilter may not work for another. I would try a hoop without a stand, and then invest in something else if that doesn't work.

It depends on the show. Some shows have a point system, and you are awarded a ribbon according to how many points your quilt earns. Vermont Quilt Festival works this way. There may be more than one...

If you are stab stitching, the top can be reasonably tight in the hoop. As for the back, use a busy print. No one will be able to see the stitches that way. As you practice, the stitches will look...

Let me put the price of the expensive thimble in perspective: it's a lot less than a sewing machine, and at the cost of fabric these days, less than the cost of a quilt top. You can try a Roxette,...

Feline Fanatic is right, you'll need a certified appraisal. Even then, the shipping company will balk at paying out on any insurance claim. Many quilters who ship their quilts have a fine arts rider...

No - Sandra Leichner does lovely, intricate hand appliqué and machine quilts on a domestic. Her machine quilting is exquisite. She's won top prizes at all the quilt shows.

Good luck!
