Babylock Digitizing Question by Steve McDevitt
Any opinions on the best software for digitizing? We own a Babylock Ellageo and we are looking at Palette 5.0 but are curious if anyone has experience using other software with the Ellageo. For those that use Palette 5.0, how long did it take you to become "proficient" at using the software with...

question about a vogue pattern (v7832) by azalea
I was going through some patterns and really like skirt "B", the one with the godets. I was just wondering if I'd be able to substitute the wool or linen (the recommended fabrics) for corduroy (sp?). I received some cord for Christmas; it's pretty light weight for cord, but definitely not as thin...

Home - in stitches! (Slightly OT) by Kate Dicey
I got home on Christmas Eve, and my sister delivered the lad home shortly after. HE, naturally, had had a lovely time. Mine was less fun... It was touch and go for a moment or three on the keyhole, as the stone was almost too big to allow it! As a result, I have 'Church Door' keyhole! The hole...

Curtain dilemma by Carolyn Wagner
Okay, here's another curtain question. I am in the midst of making my first insulated pair of curtains and have 1 panel finished. They are very heavy, made with a velvety-suede material, interlining and lining and are 110"x62" (1 panel). They are just a plain panel (like tab tops without the tab)....

X-POSTED! Bernina 700D by nana2b
Hi Peggy, I have a Bernina 1200DA. A Serger is so totally different from a sewing machine that for me it has a very large learning curve. That said it just adds to the sewing experience for me. The speed and great stitch sold me on it. You can't go wrong with a Bernina. Go to a dealer and...
