"Pass it on week" for All Thingz Sewn

 In the past post I shared the problems on the purchase of my Dream Quilter 15. Thanks to those of you for your suggestions.  The  shop I bought my mid arm  from has finally come to my aid.  I was finally able to reach the owner and she was upset as to how this happened.  I now have some classes coming up and have received replacement parts and a tech is coming to correct some mistakes that were made in setting up the machine and table.  I was also given a 10 percent credit of the purchase amount to put towards any future purchases.  I'm thinking software. I think this was an isolated event. They have smoothed some ruffled feathers.

Now onto the finished quilts for Hands2Help.  I was able to finish two quilts.  I questioned the red white and blue one.  As I mentioned in the last post it is a vintage top I acquired it at a consignment store and really liked it. I ask several of the ladies in our guild if it was something they would like to receive and they said yes. So I sent it.  These are going to Camp Hobe for children with cancer and to Happy Chemo for adults.

 I mailed out some pet mats to a no kill shelter in St Louis for displaced pets after the storms they had lately.  These people will let you know when and where there is a specific need.

I still have a couple of weeks to make a few more dresses before the missionary leaves. He goes two or three times a year.

We are finally having pretty weather here, hope you are doing the same.

I will be sharing at:

Up date on Hands 2 Help/1st time free motion

Hi All,
I'm finishing the binding on this today.  The quilting doesn't show up to well on the front, but since I'm not too good at it yet, that may be a good thing.

With the red white and blue , I thought the stars and stripes would be ok.  Maybe for a veteran?

I'm hoping to finish the quilting on this jelly roll quilt this weekend.  I'm just hoping the bobbin thread lasts until it's finished.  I haven't figured out how to change it yet.

I sure wish I had someone who knew how to use this machine.  It would save me a lot of time and frustration.   But I shall conquer in the end.

Hugs and Blessings
