Lynne, good luck with the teaching possibility. Would you like for me to ask around here how the quilt shops pay? I know one keeps $20 of the fee for each paying student. The teacher gets the rest of the fee. I think she is the most generous in what she pays teachers I believe the others do a split. Many of the shops also offer discounts to teachers if they are making a sample for their class. I have only taught in my home so I haven't paid a whole lot of attention to how all the stores do it. I have a friend that teaches embroidery at a local shop. She picks a particular project that all the students will make. In her next class they are doing "ooh, La, La" by Lunch Box quilts. She requires certain supplies. I don't know if the shop gives her a cut from the supplies or not. I will ask her for more information. Good luck if you decide to take the plunge.
Lynne, I wondered where Marion was. My family and I spend a few days most summers in Bastrop, at Lost Pines, we were probably not too far from you.
I live in Houston. If you happen to come down this way for the IQF let me know. I'd love to meet you and talk all things ME.
I've admired some of your posted photos. One day, I will try to look through them all.
Once I become more familiar with uploading photos, I will add some of my work. I don't have nearly as much ME as you but I do have lots of quilts.
What type of machine do you use for ME?
I know you are big on AG designs. I've never tried any of their work. I do like Lunch Box designs, Amazing Designs, Loralie, and OESD. I have a few other brands that I have tried that I like but can't remember their name. I don't get as much time to ME as I'd like.
Hi Lynne. Thanks for your support. We're trying to give the place of business the benefit of the doubt, but it sure looked suspect. We've talked to DH's mom to caution her about this type of thing. Hopefully she'll be more aware in the future.
DH's favorite cow in our herd is a Longhorn cross. He likes everything about her (udder, mothering instinct, size) except that speckled hide. (I like it because I can always pick her out from the rest.) We run mostly Angus/Hereford cattle, but the neighbors had a Longhorn bull, and she is the result of that.
Hi Lynne...Thanks for accepting my friend request. I'm glad that fall is here. It was really hot here this summer with the muggies. Fall is my favorite season especially since the temperature starts cooling down. Will talk soon, take care. Rachel
Hi Lynne! Thanks for accepting my request. Absolutely we'll have sleepovers - quilting and going through our stashes sleepovers. Now wouldn't that be fun to do? If only we lived closer to one another.... Have a great evening and a wonderful day tomorrow! Hugs!
Hi Lynn, I've looked at some of your photos and can't wait to get to know you and everyone else better. Have you ever heard of anyone here that also makes dolls? I'm actually a quilter but made a witch and a bird and wouldn't mind making at least one doll each year to learn. I have decided on my winter project, no actually designing yet, just contemplating - it's related to quilting and emb I guess.
My crazy machine don't have that big of a hoop, Its a Singer Futura SES 2000, I had a Brother PE700 II but my sister has it now. She bought the bigger hoop for it but don't know how to get the machine to except the bigger hoop so she can upload the bigger patterns...Does anyone have any ideas?
