Subject: adapters for feet

A while back, I purchased two adapters at a local quilt show.  They
were $10.00.  I leave one permanently on the "Little Foot"  and "The
Big Foot".  These are not Bernina Feet.  They are from the makers of
the purple "Big Foot" with the large clear plastic bottom that is so
great to see your sewing area through and also makes free motion quilting
so great.  I used this last night on a piece that I am quilting, but
remember that you have to leave the Presser Foot down when doing the
free motion or you get garbled loops on the back side.  Presser Bar
down and Feed Dogs down!   No affiliation - just like the product!
I use these items on my 1630.

Subject: Quilt Labels quilt stores in Hawaii

 I was wondering if anyone knows of a computer program I can buy  for making
quilt labels.  I thought I saw one on the net but I can't seem to locate it.

Also I have a friend going to the Big Island, Kona Coast, and she is wondering
about quilt stores that she could visit while there.

Okay!  Where do I get one???  I am finding the manual for my new 1630 not
very "in depth".  And what is the "Advanced Guide Workbook"  I was reading
about before I bought my new machine???

Thank You!

Subject: Re: Buying a Serger 

I bought a Huskylock 460D about 4 years ago. It's really a great help for my
sewing. But there's a thing that drives me crazy every time I sew a new
garment with different threads and it's to find the proper tension for the
new thread according to the new fabric.
Try to get a serger easy to adjust its thread tension or one that comes with
incorporated system in it.
Good luck!
