Update on New Home Greyhound

Thanks to all of you who offered help.  With the help of someone who knows these machines I found out it was made in 1937! Now she just needs a good cleaning!

New Home Greyhound Machine

Found this lovely Greyhound machine at a yard sale on Saturday for $25! Got lots of attachments and a manual. The problem is I'm having a very hard time finding info on this machine. The only thing I know is that it was made by New Home. New Home Janome has been no help at all. I'm hoping maybe someone here might have an idea how I can at least get a manufacturing date. Any help is appreciated!…

Modern Quilts

I've started a new group for those of you who are interested in modern quilts. Since the Contemporary Quilt Along never took off (I think mainly because there was no way for a daily discussion) I thought I'd start this group so we can talk and share ideas.

So if you like to make traditional quilts with a modern look using wonderful new fabrics and fresh color combinations come and join this new group. 

You can find us here: …

I've challenged myself to make one string quilt or afghan a month to donate to charity. Of course the crocheting is going faster than the quilting. If anyone is interested in joining me in the string quilt challenge there is a string quilt tutorial on the In Love With Strings! group page. Here's a picture of the first few blocks… Continue

Organ or Schmetz Needles?

I need a little help and thought this was the perfect place to get it. I have been wondering if I can use Organ needles in my Bernina? I've only used Schmetz but, I have lots of Organ needles that came with my Juki and was thinking of trying them in my Bernina. Has anyone ever used them in a Bernina? Thanks in advance.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you all so much for all of the wonderful Birthday wishes. I had a good day just doing whatever I wanted (reading quilt magazines, doing some EPP and crocheting). DH was on the road yesterday, so tonight he is taking me out to dinner. So I will just call this my B'DAY WEEKEND! Thanks again.

Would Someone Please Start A..............

I know we have a lot of groups here, 88 groups actually. I noticed that we don't have a group for those of us who quilt on domestic machines. I would love to see someone start one so that those of us still struggling could benefit from those of you who are more advanced!

Won't someone please take up the challenge? Some of us, uh I could use your help! I would start it but I already have two groups (Scrap Bags and In Love With Strings) so I don't think I could manage a… Continue

It's October !

Wow, it's October. The summer sure goes fast these days. I know it didn't go this fast when I was younger. LOL. It's time to drag out the old Halloween quilt. I made this quilt when my DD was in elementary school. She took it to school and it hung in the classroom all month. It has also made the rounds of a few Girl Scout… Continue
