1  Texas / Texas: Central / Surplus sewing machine auction! on: January 06, 2010 07:16:05 PM
Just wanted to give Texas sewers a heads-up on the sewing machines for sale through this online surplus auction. Looks like they're surplus Dallas ISD home ec machines, so who knows how they've been treated, but at 2 for $25? might be worth taking a look.

2  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Paper piecing question: Ridiculous to give my quilt top a bath? on: September 20, 2009 09:52:01 AM
So I just finished my first paper pieced quilt top, a storm at sea pattern in blues and white. I've removed most of the larger pieces of paper backing (I used typing paper and dampening the paper helped a lot in getting it off), but there's still a good bit to finish picking off.

Would it be ridiculous to put the top in a bathtub filled with warm water, swirl it around a bit , and hope that that helps the remaining bits of paper break free?  Or would that be a really bad idea?  I wouldn't want to mess up the top at this point, but picking off the paper is getting tedious...

PS, Think a dollop of Mr. Bubble might help?  Wink
3  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Darning foot question on: March 07, 2009 01:02:30 PM
Pardon what may be a silly question, but:

Can anyone help me understand why it's suggested to use a darning foot to do free motion quilting?

How is using a darning foot from using a regular or open-toe foot with your feed dogs down?  Or from just sewing without a presser foot at all (but with the presser foot lever down)?
