  • Help! Thread shredding!

    I am free motion quilting a king size cotton patchwork quilt on my vintage Featherweight. The thread is a 40 weight polyester embroidery thread, and I am using new embroidery needles, size 11 and 12. Even after putting in a new needle, I can sew for a few minutes, and then I get a shredded top thread...

  • Re: what sewing machine do you use?

    DH bought me a Babylock Quest last year. I've never been able to bond with this machine but I can't sell it-nobody is willing to pay what I did, and I got it at a show for a great discount. I'd love to be able to either fall in love with it or move on but I can't afford it unless I sell...

  • Marking for Free Motion

    I normally just go for it with free motion, so I have no experience with marking. I have a quilt ready for quilting (lap quilt) and I think it needs a more structured quilting pattern. I have a pounce bag and have used it with stencils (ones used for painting) I'll be glad to get your advise. Thanks...

  • Re: What sewing machine do you use?

    I use a Juki TL98Q for free motion quilting. I LOVE it! A few weeks ago our house alarm system went crazy blasting fire, fire, fire. I ran around the house to see if it was a false alarm, threw Toby, our aussie, on the patio for safety, and then decided the first thing to save is the Juki! It does only...

  • Shrinkables- interfacing and felts

    Hi all! I'm developing a large fiber piece for my mother-in-law's new home and I'd like to incorporate shrinking as a surface technique. I know there are products that will allow you to do this in a somewhat controlled manner. Wool felt leaps to mind, of course, but I need the shrinkable...
