Move to Dallas

bellecon3
 

Hey all;
I have moved to Dallas in the last year from Iowa.  I had a really good service person/local quilt shop just the town over. 
I see there are several dealers in the area but I don't know anything about them and living in a city is a lot different from small towns where you can just ask around.....anyway it is time for my 12000s yearly check up.  Wondering if anyone knows anything about the dealers around Dallas
Thanks
Lori

oh no, chocolate brownies, there goes my resistance, I've been so good right through Christmas, no chocolates, no sweets, no cakes, no Christmas pud smothered in brandy cream, no second helpings, no nibbles, and you mention brownies.

Single malt or blend


Thanks Jim

I forgot to thank Jim for making a smooth transition to a new group for us.  You can have the biggest brownie.

If you try to follow the typical guidelines that quilters use as to thread types that could guide you. For example we usually use a thin but strong thread for piecing, and then the quilting threads can be just about anything a person could want; thick thread so the stitches really stand out, or thinner thread if you want a more refined look. When I do quilt in the hoop I piece the blocks with regular 50 wt. sewing thread both top and bobbin, and for the quilting I also like Superior Bottom LIne 60wt top and bobbin, or other decorative thread with a suitable weight bobbin thread. Testing is necessary to get the results and look that YOU want. There are no hard and fast rules. For me the one thing I do is use the red dot bobbin case and adjust the tension so that I have a balanced thread tension just as you would want if you were doing this in regular sewing mode.

Forget the coffee, pass the wine.  Better yet, scotch!

James and I have an understanding, no in flight alcohol. I must confess I'm regretting slightly not using Groups@io easy transfer, but I decided to go for a completely new group, no email transfers, no photo transfers, no members list transfers, my Yahoo group members have to apply to join the new group. That does several things, it shows only members that genuinely want to learn to digitise make the move, those that unfortunately died since the group started in 2005 but were still listed, don't carry over, those that joined but forgot, and yes all groups have a percentage of those, also don't carry over. I'll know in a few weeks when requests for invites end, my membership will be all those with a genuine desire to learn to digitise.

Would love some feedback on Cloth Guide and foot pedal vs. Start/Stop button for piecing on the 12000 😊

A *VERY* short time after creating this group I was surprised to see new subscribers. I guess you learned about it from the post on the Yahoo Group. As you've already seen, there is nothing here yet. I'm going to try to transfer membership from the Yahoo group, but until then you won't see anything new. My intent is to leave the Yahoo group intact for reading, but not  posting. That will still provide access to previous posts, at least until Verizon does away with groups. So thanks for signing up, and for your patience as we get things moving.

Thank you!  I'm going to do some testing.

I have done many quilts doing quilt as you go and there ate many different ways to finish them. As far as your thread goes again I have used prewounds wound my own. Used both embroidery thread regular sewing thread snd used 3e0wt in the top and normal in the bobin all matching colors and also. Much of it depends on your machine and what thread it likes. I never adjust or touch my tensions and have always had success. It is just trial and error till you get it right.

Subject: [janome12000] thread question- please help

 

I tried asking this question on Facebook but didn't really get the help  I need.
I want to piece a block in the hoop, then put the backing on the underside of the hoop to do Quilt as You Go, and then do the embroidery while the block is still in the hoop.  As I want to do an entire quilt with the same color thread, I'd like to know what thread I should use for the piecing/embroidery/bobbin or if I can use all the same thread for all of it.  I looked at Superior Threads but they didn't seem to have the light color I wanted except in Bottom Line (I have a small spool of that in color 620 which works well) but they don't have prewound bobbins in class 15 in the color I need and I'm confused by their many #40 wt poly.  If I could just buy one thread that would be great but I don't want a tension problem and I want the top and bottom to look nice (of course).  Please, and help would be appreciated.

for jim

Jim, did you know Yahoo stopped supporting yahoo groups back in 2014, and Verizon doesn't appear to want to take them on. I've reluctantly started a new one on groups@io. What is so aggravating is Yahoo didn't inform anyone which has meant many groups have been left high and dry as owners can't access them.

Clearly I need to spend less time making software and more time following Yahoo, although Yahoo has given me a wealth of reasons to detest them. Many thanks for the heads-up.


To all members: We will begin taking steps immediately to move the group to groups.io. You can visit that page now to see the advantages that it offers over Yahoo. For now you don't need to do anything. Once the transfer is ready to begin I will email all members with further instructions.


Once again, Maggie, I owe you one!

Re: Free motion foot

Gail
 

So does that also mean that I can use my new Ruler foot I got with the 15000 upgrade on my 9400?  That would be awesome!
Gail

The foot will fit, but the machine software will not have it available as a choice. You may have to experiment to find the right settings. Before stitching with it turn the hand wheel through a few stitches to confirm that the needle is properly lined up.


Free motion foot

Gail
 

I have the 15000 an the 9400.  I bought the QB S free motion convertible foot for the 15000.  Can I use this on the 9400?  Both are 9mm high shank machines.

Gail in FL


Yes, QB-S should be fine on both machines, although the new feet for the 15000 Quilt Maker Upgrade pretty much eliminate the need for it on the 15000.

For some reason I can’t open the files🤔

The link was sent by Yahoo, not me. As happens so often with Yahoo, things that should work just don't. Do this:

1. Click this link: Files

2. On the files page click the "iPad Wallpaper" folder to open it.

3. Click the file you want to download.
