Yesterday's error message - traced a box, started to stitch, machine screen goes blank/black, machine goes for a few more stitches then stops. Machine reboots to manual mode.

This repeated itself again with the same pattern. I was able to stitch a different pattern once, saved it, then went to re-do it and got the same occurrence.

Anybody here have similar problems?

All the cords were plugged in fine, no obstructions etc. Followed all the rules - used the stylus etc.

Got the dealer coming again on Saturday.

I think the tin lizzie ruler table will work. At $110 here in Canada I am looking to find someone who can make what I want. I have figured out a design that doesn't require the screw on legs for support and still incorporates the slide locks - I'll keep you people posted on how it goes. I hope to "twist" my son's arm to get him and his buddy to build one for me but that won't be for a month or so.

Also, instead of working with one practice piece and pinning on another, I would just layer another piece of fabric over the top of what I had just practiced on so I didn't waste so much batting.  Of course it's a lil messy on the back but I used my practice pieces for my pets bedding and they never complained. :)

Which machine do you have? Also, private message me if you wish to discuss locations etc. I am in Ontario and I might be able to help with sources.

I started with lots of practice pieces.  I have a couple books and watched so many You Tube videos my head was spinning.  The greatest advice I was given.  No ONE way is right, everyone has their own flow and what works better for them.  Sometimes you have to just stop trying to do it the way the videos/books say and do what seems easiest for YOU!  Amazing how my feathers went from flat to feathers after I just took a deep breath and did it the way that felt most comfortable for ME.  There is no quilters jail so if it works for you then it's right. 

Donna~I have my cards at numerous shops even JoAnn fabrics and I've never heard or had anyone ask me for commission or referral %.  I don't think I would leave my cards at a shop that asked me for that.  Especially if I were a frequent shopper in their shop.  I mean I wouldn't ask for commission if I referred someone to THEIR shop.
