I thought I would answer a few questions I have been
receiving from blog readers...
This drawer sits right next to the
Tools of the Trade...
The Sweet Sixteen
BIG Class M Bobbins
I struggled for a few weeks setting the bobbin tension.
Then I found out a Long Arm secret...
This bobbin gauge makes life so easy!
I set my gauge between 180 - 200

Trim your threads close to the quilt without
the worry of snipping into the quilt.
I feel clumsy wearing quilting gloves.
Instead I use Neutrogena (greaseless) hand cream
to get a better grip on the quilt.
It lasts for hours before I need to re-apply.
Make Up Brushes
work great for cleaning out the bobbin and housing.
Flower Pincushion by Fons and Porter
works great for organizing needles by sizes.
Spiral Eye Needles
I use these to bury my thread tails
The Open Toe Hopping Foot
gives me better visibility right to the tip of the needle

I rarely mark quilting lines,
but when I do I use a Chubby Crayon.
The mark irons off easily.
I work out all of my designs in a sketch book.
I also practice on paper before I go to the machine.
It improves my muscle memory.
