Thanks for letting me join your forum.  I was wondering what kind of stabilizer you use on baby onesies, terry cloth bibs, and cloth diapers.  Thanks again!

Hi Pauline, I upgraded to a diamond and have lots of floppies I no longer have a use for.  Let me know where to send to and if its not toooo far away I will foot the shipping.  Who knows, maybe you are just down the street.  I am in Marysville, California.

Machine review Janome 15000

I love this machine, cuts the threads and pulls the next one under the embroidery to cut down on those sticky up bits.

Larger hoops 5.5" sq., 9.1" sq.. grand hoop 9.1"x11.8"

Large screen and can be programmed from the Ipad.

As with all Janomes, they are very user friendly, so easy to operate.

Machine Review

I have three Janomes. Began a long time ago with the 9000 and it still sews like a dream though because it's old, it only has the 4x4 sewing field. Then I got the 300E and it embroiders beautifully. A couple of years ago I got an 11000 and I like it very much but I think the 9000 is a better built machine. I am seriously considering selling all of them as a down payment in the new Horizon 15000. It looks awfully tempting! I wonder if any if you have the 15000 and if you are glad you bought it?… Continue

"i do everything this way ... you have to get comfortable doing that ... take your time ... make sure your fabric overlay is smooth and start pinning ... top then bottom ... then one side then the other ... then fill in where you think it is needed…"

    etsy.com is probably the best site for selling your handcrafts ... the fees are excellent and the site features are wonderful ... the quality and variety of crafts on this site is very impressive ... when you list an item on etsy you have your own store (there is no additional fee for that either) and listings are for 3 months

    i have my own shop there and when…

    Blanks to Embroider

    here are two sources of blanks ... i think their prices are excellent ... many people buy an embroidery machine that have never sewed before ... for them blanks are extremely useful ... and for people that sew these are time savers
