I am getting a new Tin Lizzie 18 LS for aboiut 3/4 of original price. They recommend King Tut thread by Superior, It is cotton. I love it on my Juki. The big spools are 22 dollars and the smaller around 6 if I remember right. I have to get it from out of state usually so I use what I have. They also use a different thread on the bobbin I think. I have ordered King Tut thread and cotton prewound bobbins from Bayside quilting in Washington in the past. I like them for my Juki. It will take some trial and error I am sure on the Tin Lizzie. I am hoping I made the right choice as is my friend because she took the same deal. She has a Juki setup too. Do you follow patterns or freehand? On the Juki pattern sizes are pretty limited. I do have a cruise control which helped.I don't think I will add the computer. Just me. Thanks for caring. Keep in touch
New wrinkle. The businesses got more competetive and my friend and I are getting new in box machines for even less than the floor model. I guess competetion is good. Looking forward to next week and my new machine.
I enjoyed your quilt pictures. You have made a lot. The digital camera world has certainly made it easier to take and share photos.
I too am still learning on the long arm. But, it will get easier with practice. I wish I had more time.
I'm glad you liked my bed quilt. Now quilting that was so... much easier on the longarm. It was such a chore to do big ones on the domestic.
Keep up the good works.
I was looking for that pattern you were telling me about, Calais, and I can't find it at Timeless Treasures site. I did find the Taxi pattern though. You have my curiosity up now though. My one grandson wants a quilt in black, and red and I thought that Calais just might be the one. :) Could you send me the url for it pretty please...lol.
Hello, thank you so much.And it was quite a while since my nephew died and he was only 23 years old. And sorry to hear about your nephew. And hoping someone will enjoy the quilts when they do get to own them, Have a good day. Jessie
Catherine.....I have been looking high and low for the pattern for the Taxi quilt. I can't find it, why is it I always put things alway really good, so it doesn't let lost, and then when I want it, I can't even find it. But, you can go in on the net, and type in Timeless Treasures Fabric, and can get into that site. You will find the Taxi pattern, fabric and all for that. Along with lots of other neat patterns. While looking for the Taxi pattern, I ran across a pattern called "Calais". I sure thought of you, it is shown done in black, white and red. Very pretty. Do I know how to scan it and send you a copy??? That is if you are interested. I am so 'dumb' when it comes to this computer. I know how to do just the simplest things. Sorry! Have a good day.....Helen
Not in a real big hurry Helen....I have two other quilt tops to cut and put together before that one. It will be a Christmas present for my grandson though so will need about a month or so before then. Thank you so much.
