Machine Help by Gothikka
I don't suppose any of you ladies ( and gentlemen ) would happen to have any experience of the Singer 132Q or the Europro Shark sewing machines would you? I recently bought these machines, but haven't had a chance to use them, and was wondering if/hoping that I made the right choice. Gillian in...

Katrina/Rita Christmas by Leanne
Is there any type of "clearing house" that we could send Christmas ornaments and/or decorations for the folks who have lost all of that? I have no idea where or how things get disseminated to people who could use things like this. It would be fun to make (or buy) some of these things and...

Putting the boot in! And a thread question by Kate Dicey
I've been playing! Specifically with Christmas stockings. I've made three today. They are quite plain as they have very rich fabrics. One is a black jacquard polycotton curtain fabric. I gave it a curly, pointy toe with a gold bell on, and some rich gold and black braid round the top. I think...

Favorite hoop sizes? by Taria
I have a Grace Hoop with floor stand that is 24". I am thinking a smaller one might be easier to maneuver. They are sort of rounded square shaped. I can get an 18" or 14" but don't know which I might find easier to use. Anyone have some suggestions or comments about their favorite quilting...

Please help! - Satin Stitching by Scorpio
I'm making a fabric bowl, and my first bowl came out great, this one I'm using varigated thread, and it keeps not 'picking up' the stitch, I can't come up with any other way to explain it. It's ruining my bowl, and my patience! Do you have any ideas why this is happening? I've tried on test...

Dear Jane question by Butterfly
Been asked but I don't know the answer since I don't have either. If you purchase the Dear Jane CD, do you also have to purchase the book? Or is the CD stand alone? And what would you consider a 'good price' ? Thanks. Butterfly

PIQF report by Anne in CA
A report on the "other" quilt show this month :-) On Thursday I took Expressive Free Motion Quilting with Robbie Eklow. Her work is way different from anything I usually do. But it was fun to stretch a little and play with ways of filling in a background without stippling per se. We did have some...

My girlfriends and I did all sixteen of the shops between Thursday and Saturday. I was going to be extremely good and not spend a lot of money. I even had a list. I went way over my budget, but managed to get everything on my list (and some things that weren't). :-) It's those fat quarters! ...

A sick quilt gets well by Joan
I've been doing factory work, finally completing a half dozen baby quilts for friends and family. Whew! After that I began a quilt for myself. How strange. In any case, mass producing baby quilts made me a little careless with the new quilt, and I made a few mistakes which required some doctoring...
