I needed to do some work in our basement because it has not been touched since we moved in…so boxes everywhere with lots of extra stuff we don’t really need anymore…down there is a bunch of things from my old home studio…and I was rewarded with finding some things/designs that I had misplaced!!! You do not know how happy this made me…All set for new projects for 2018!!!

I will be doing some kind of stitch along in 2018 but just need a few weeks to catch my breath…2017 had a lot going on!!!

It was pretty quiet here on New Years Eve…Nick was sick/flu and was bed ridden for two days…so I had a lot of time to myself..actually I have not left the house since Thursday!

2017 Needful Things…Day 1

DAY 1…last day before the best day of the year…Jesus’s Birthday!

JUKI SEWING MACHINE TL2010Q

OPEN TOE FOOT

SCANT 1/4″ FOOT

& EXTRA BOBBINS!!!

Today is the day…some wait for this all year…some are buying another…lol…but we who own this machine are of a secret society because we know…that if you own a Juki you are a serious quilter….we love it and we think everyone should have one, there are so many high priced machine out there and yes if your hearts desire is to embroider than maybe you need that $12,000 machine, but as a quilter/piecer…this machine is a true treasure  and I can really say I would be very upset and almost refuse to stitch on any other machine…I know that sounds very childish…but machines are that different..it’s so perfect for what I do…which is piecing and quilting my mini quilts with it…so please read all about it AND the accessories below:

Now for those of you who do not own a JUKI…

tl10q_lgEvery year so far people ask…Will you please do the Juki again this year?…. so here it is AGAIN!…..by popular demand…AND you could win yours free!!!

Now I know we pretty much all have a sewing machine…or two or three or even more…But I just have to talk about the sewing machine I use 99% of the time…It is my #1 Needful thing…Most of you probably have never heard of Juki…so let me just say they are not new to the market…Juki is well known in the garment industry and are mostly industrial machines. I think I have had a Juki for about 10 years now…I also own 2 Berninas, 1060 and a 1530, and a couple of featherweights…one black and one white. I confess this to you so you also know what I am comparing to and you all know I teach all across the country and have stitched on many machines.

I bought the Juki with the intention to use it as a second machine to have set up for machine quilting my little quilts, and also so I didn’t have to change the walking foot from my regular foot on my Bernina…that would have been nice, right?…Juki has entered the quilt world with a semi-industrial machine for quilters. Here are a few of the features that the Juki machines have…all metal…no plastic bobbins, no plastic feet, comes with all sorts of feet including 2 free motion feet and a walking foot, a larger 9″ opening between the body and the arm, so machine quilting would be easier to handle. It has a nice extension table, this is nice for retreats, I have it embedded in my table usually. The machine ONLY stitches straight. Now this might be an issue for some, but I was only going to use this for machine quilting…The fact that it only stitches straight is actually a plus…nice tension all the time, single hole throat plate . It holds large cones as well as regular thread…It has an automatic thread cutter, automatic needle threader , knee lift and stitches 1500 stitches per minute or something like that, in other words it is FAST. It comes with a walking foot and other feet for doing free motion quilting…I use the regular foot and stitch up against a bumper to get a scant quarter inch… Here are all the particulars from the manufacturer:

The Juki TL-2010Q is a high-performance sewing and quilting machine. The TL-2010Q is a single needle, lock-stitch, portable machine, constructed of aluminum die-casting to ensure industrial-quality sewing.

With advanced features, such an industrial sub-tension system, variable speed control slider, and bright white LED lighting, this machine is built for precision sewing. With a large work area of up to 23 inches (with auxiliary table attached), the TL-2000Qi can handle large quilt, sewing or home decor project with ease.

Advanced Thread TrimmingJuki_TL-2010Q_FootControllerjuki_tl-2010q_footcontroller
The New TL-2010Q allows you to trim top and bobbin threads using the Exclusive foot controlled trimming system.

Just rock your heel back on the foot control, and thread is quickly and precisely cut.

Automatic Thread Trimmer Juki_TL-2010Q_ThreadTrimmerjuki_tl-2010q_threadtrimmer
The machine is also equipped with an automatic thread button that simultaneously trims the needle and bobbin threads at the sewing end by lightly pressing the push-button.

Both the Trim Button and the Foot Controller engage the advanced Juki industrial style thread trimming mechanism.

No More Twists or QuiversJuki_TL-2010Q_SubTensionUnitjuki_tl-2010q_subtensionunit
The Sub Tension Unit ensures thread feeding to the needle is smooth, even and twist free, no matter how thick your thread is.

It also keeps the thread from quivering when sewing at high speeds and provides accurate, fine tuned thread tension.

Thread Tension ScaleJuki_TL-2010Q_ThreadTensionjuki_tl-2010q_threadtension
The machine also has the thread tension scale, which allows you to adjust the tension according to the thread and material to be used.
Maximum Speed ControlJuki_TL-2010Q_SpeedControl
The new speed control lever gives you complete control over sewing speed.

Set the speed from 200 to 1500 stitches per minute, or any speed in between for free motion, and precision sewing.juki_tl-2010q_speedcontrol

heavy
Materials are sewn with Ease
The microcomputer controlled, speed control mechanism, allows the machine to sew materials at low speeds. This provides for accurate feed and perfect stitching when sewing heavy weight fabric, quilting and multiple layers of materials.

PresseJuki_TL-2010Q_PressureFootr Foot Pressure Adjustmentjuki_tl-2010q_pressurefoot
Presser foot pressure can be adjusted according to the fabric being sewn by turning a regulator located on the top of the machine.

 

 

 

Needle Up/Down ControlJuki_TL-2010Q_StopPositionjuki_tl-2010q_stoppositionWhen you stop sewing, the machine will stop with the needle in the down position to allow for pivoting or more accurate free motion work.

To move the needle up or down as desired, simply press the needle up/down button.

 

Truly Illuminatingjuki_tl-2010q_ledlightThe new, bright-white LJuki_TL-2010Q_LEDLightED lighting, provides an illuminated view of the sewing area and allows for more precise sewing.

Automatic Needle ThreaderJuki_TL-

 

 

juki_tl-2010q_autoneedlethreader2010Q_AutoNeedleThreader
The push lever automatic needle threader easily threads the needle without eyestrain and allows you to start sewing quickly.

 

juki_tl-2010q_bobbinreplacement

 

Easy Bobbin ReplacementJuki_TL-2010Q_BobbinReplacement

A new bobbin case latch and an enlarged bobbin case area make it easier to remove and replace the bobbin.

Nothing Free Motion Quilts Better Than  Juki quilting feetquiltingfeet
Juki’s rich tradition in quilting continues with the TL-2010Q.

The feed dog can be raised and lowered simply by depressing a switch. When quilting, the drop feed allows you to sew curved stitches with precision and ease.

Juki 1/4 Inch and 1/5 Inch Quilting Feet
The quilting feet are designed for free motion quilting and free-hand embroidery. Just lower the feed dogs and stitch away.

Juki Even Feed Foot Juki_TL-2010Q_FeedFootjuki_tl-2010q_feedfoot
With its reliable feed, the even feed foot ensures the machine’s ability to produce beautiful seams when sewing difficult-to-feed fabrics such as georgette and velvets, as well as heavy weight materials such as leather.

juki_tl-2010q_kneelifterKnee Lifter Lever Juki_TL-2010Q_KneeLifter
The knee lifter level allows you to lift/lower the presser foot without using your hands. The presser foot can be raised as high as 12mm.

 

After stitching on this machine and using it. I did not want to stitch on anything else. It “pieces” beautifully…I didn’t have to hang on to my threads at the start, the feed dogs are nice and close together and fed my little pieces in nicely. Having the single hole meant my piecing wasn’t sucked down into that oblong hole… and again…I could stitch, cut my thread with my foot(or there is a button, but I like my hands free to hold on to my patches) knee lift my presser foot and be on to the next thing…I especially love piecing triangle paper on the Juki for all the reasons I just stated…Now I know being fast really should not be an issue, right? We want to be accurate! But let me tell you, if I am stitching strips, borders or you name it…fast is handy…I tried going back to my “regular” machine to piece on…it was almost painful!!! Just shoot me…I loan this machine at The Gathering, but it comes with a warning…if you stitch with it you WILL be going home with it! I think only one person didn’t buy one after she stitched on it for a weekend…lol…They also have updated the Juki recently…I have a TL98Q (old model at home) and the new modelTL2010 Q1 I have in the studio, they have updated to an LED light…they have added a Turtle and a Hare button, if you want to control how fast it can go…and they changed the foot pedal, a bit…I love both of them and even though they are slightly different I can stitch on both on them with no problem even though they have slightly different foot pedals and controls.

So if you are ever in the market for a machine, please check out the Juki’s and you can read all the technical words I should have used to explain it. I sell only the Juki 2010Q1 at my store in WI…I could sell other machines but remember what I said, I only sell what I use…therefore I sell the Juki’s. I am placing the Juki 2010Qi on sale now until the end of the year at a special of $899-(yes…not a typo $948.95 if you are in WI we have to add tax) which includes shipping too. This is a great deal. We will order more for this same price as long as you order before the end of the year. JUKI In 2017 they will go back to $999.00 still a great price when you think about what you all get with this machine! Please allow a few weeks for delivery….  Your card will be charged as soon as you place your order with out new compliant cc processing. If you are the winner we will be crediting your card back.

SCANT 1/4″ FOOT

So for those of you who have a JUKI already andy maybe missed this last year when JUKI finally made a SCANT 1/4″ foot. Here is my article about it…

I have to admit…I was skeptical…but…I was happily surprised…I stitched a mini quilt..and it was amazing…I tried to derail it by trying to run over a dog ear…no wouldn’t do it!!! I first put my foot on and it was perfectly lined up with my usual tape bumper…so off came the tape…I happily stitched this whole mini and was very pleased!  The only thing…you have the put the other regular foot on when doing triangle paper…I managed to do TP with it on, but it was very difficulty to see…and I will not do it again… we have them on sale for $45.OO .images-phpimg_9120

This year we also have added an FRONT OPEN TOE FOOT– This is for machine quilting…we all love this foot because there is no obstruction of view while quilting…much nicer…

Last year we sold over 50 machines… If we make it over 50 this year…one of you who purchases will get theirs FREE too!!! Those odds are pretty good!!!

I will be posting the winner for the machine AND all the other winners here on NEW YEARS DAY …

Click HERE to order your machine and/or other accessories

If you are the proud owner of a Juki…please let comment and let everyone her know about it!!!  So I don’t look like a just a salesman…I do not have time to be a sewing machine store…but I know the importance of have a great machine…and one you do not have to sell your soul for, so I only advertise them once or twice a year….I will give an FRONT OPEN TOE FOOT- to a Juki owner if you take the time to tell us about it here…I know we are all so busy and I have to get some groceries yet!!!

Thank you all for reading and purchasing from Primitive Gatherings…we are a family business which main purposes to to inspire and bring quilters the best possible fabrics, gadgets, patterns & books…

Quilting is not something we do now and then…it really is a lifestyle….for most of us anyway…we do not just make a quilt when a baby is on the way or someone needs a wedding quilt…right?  It’s on our mind most of the time…If we are still working we are dreaming of when we can just stitch!!!  I know I used to punch a clock for someone else everyday so I know that is what you are doing…but some of you are retired or have lots of time for quilting…I see you on social media…know how creative you are and how we all love to see what you have made with your hands…

I can’t wait to have this book in my hands and start tracking my quilting life….if you want to win one of these books..I think I will give some to those who order it and to some who did not…so if you order it, we will pick from the orders and then some from the comments here….so if you order that two chances to win..as we randomly pick…. Here is the question to win….tell me… do you already have a journal, or something where you write down your quilting accomplishments, thoughts, dreams and so on?…or if this will be the answer you are looking for!!!

2017 Needful Things…Day 3

Day 3…Tattoo Elementz…these are so much fun!!!

What??? I know maybe you have a tattoo…maybe your put off by them…BUT…what about one for your sewing machine??? You know to make a even prettier than it already is?  I admit I had so much fun tattoing my machine…I might have even got a little carried away and did the foot pedal…

Decorative contour cut decals (the same type that go on your car/motorcycle/bicycle) for sewing machines, long-arms, electronics and more!
These rub-on decals are available on either a clear (for white or light color items) vinyl background.

SIZE: Multiple Sizes on an 8.5 inch x 11 inch sheet.  Tattoos are removable, but that are not reusable.  When you are ready for a new design just peel them off, clean the area and you are ready to place on a new tattoo.  

Here are the options we have available…

Regular price then would be $22.50

Sale Price: 16.88 (25% off) the sale price will show up in your at the end of your order.

  • Indigo
  • Dragonfly-bliss.
  • Asters
    114.2kB
  • Wave-on-wave-ocean.
  • Oodles-of-doodles-fire
  • Sunset
  • Peacock
I can’t wait to apply them to my long-arm…and IF you are ordering for your long arm…I might order two of the same…as I used the whole sheet on my domestic machine…
I apologize in advance if real tattoo’s offend you…or  you have religious reasons or such I understand…you can skip this next question…or tell the reason…but be careful not to offend those of us who do. 
So while we are all thinking of what tattoo would look good on our machines….Let’s fess up…how many of us have tattoos?  Tell us all about them…If you do not tell us why???
I’ll go first…but I never intended to have a tattoo… didn’t get my first until I was 32….but sometimes things happen in life and you need a way to capture that event or honor it and never forget it….
My first is of a sunflower on my back left shoulder-my favorite flower…the next is the Chinese symbol for Eternity- on my left ankle- Nick and I have the same one, same place…then there is the eternity symbol/anchor/heart and cross on my inner left inner forearm…for Lance.
We will give a couple of the tattoo elementz away…so have fun with this one…and I am not responsible if you order one for every machine you own!!! Cause most of you have more than one I know!!

2017 Needful Things…Day 4

Day 4…Steam-s-seam 2….and the most awesome iron ever!!! Both of these items were brought back by request…

 

Yes Back again this year…and because I WANT you all to have one… I am listening…Now we make so little on this iron especially when it on sale BUT really we must all have one. So the business profitability rules are thrown out on this one…I would probably quit quilting if I lost my steam station…its that critical…especially for wool appliqué…when I say lots of steam…I believe this is the only product that can deliver megga steam!!!  I now even bring it to my classes when I teach whenever possible…still need to figure out a way to smuggle one on the cruise ship…anyone go any connections with Royal Caribbean?


I have one at home, two at the studio…I do not want to iron with a regular iron ever again…I hate filling the water…and I do not have to do it much with this iron… This iron has immediate steam and LOTS of it!!! It has a trigger like a gun for steam..press the trigger massive steam overload…It has a tank to hold a lots of water…sole plate is filled with steam holes everywhere…If you iron has 12 steam holes around the arc it’s not enough steam for wool….Here is the write up from the manufacturer…

“Continuous high powered steam makes this steam station ideal for everyday ironing or special projects. It has the patented Microsteam 400 strainless-steel soleplate for perfect steam distribution. The precision tip reaches difficult areas like collars, seams, and around buttons. Extra large continuous anytime fill water tank holds 33 ounces for up to 1-1/2 hours of ironing. 1800 watts equals fast heat up that is ready in 3 minutes. It also has vertical steam that is ideal for removing wrinkles from hanging garments, drapes and for smoothing and shaping sewing projects. Extra long 6 foot steam cord and extra long 12 foot power cord. No Auto Off.”

The CA store has a couple in the classroom, if you stop in ask for a demo…If your in WI come to my studio by our warehouse if you want to see it in action…we always have it on!!!  If you can’t make it which most of you can’t hopefully some will reply if they have one and you’ll have to trust us all that we would die without our steam stations!!! I would love to sell a bunch of these and give one away!!!  They are $399 on sale for $350. there will be an added charge for shipping on this one…

 

and if you are in LOVE with wool and most of your are…there is no other fusible to use in my world…I know some of you have some issues with a gummy needle…I think most of it is because they are not steamed down enough…and if you stitch as soon as it is steamed there seems to be a little…but when this happen and it does because I can’t wait to stitch I consider it grip…lol…

 

Here is my promo for SAS2 lite

This is my go to fusible web for wool appliqué…for one main reason…You cannot over heat this fusible…I use tons of heat and steam when using it and it sticks to my background like its supposed to… I know when it is first laid down the fusible may be a little “gunky”  if you try to stitch it right away…but leave it sit out and rest a bit and it will a lot better than if you just fuse it down and start stitching…what I mean by “gunky” is the needle gets a little sticky residue on it..which can easily be removed by a little alcohol pad, a piece of wool or your emery…if you can’t wait a day or so to stitch…but I truly believe most of the gummy needle is from not being properly steamed down…remember you cannot hurt wool if you are using steam and always keeping the iron moving…

Couple of Hints…for working with fusible web that has two papers..

Trace all the pieced close together that share the same piece of wool…cut them out as a group instead of individually…this saves so much time.  Also…say your doing 100 flowers…place the wool on the fusible…trace a box on the fusible the same size as the wool.  Start tracing your flowers in this shape and you will get all 100 of them on it and then just rough cut about an 1/8″ away from the outer flowers, remove the backing paper and place the fusible on the wool…iron WITHOUT STEAM.  Then cut out the flower shapes on the lines and then remove the backing paper and place flowers on background…iron with lots of STEAM in an up and down motion…always keeping the iron moving!!!

The tacky-ness of the fusible web makes it a dream for laying out your stems/vines and appliqué shapes…you also do not have to cut your vines on the diagonal as wool bends nicely as is…once in place you steam as stated earlier…

The new papers have a blue or yellow grids on them…nice for when you need to be on a straight line or to measure as the grids are in inch increments…

Click here to order your life changing IRON and to get SAS2 at a great sale price!!! $4 per package if you are new and want to try it… or… Stock up with 5 packages for $18.75…we have put both lite and regular SAS2 on sale…make sure you pick the one you want…I know some of you like the regular and have no problems stitching through it…

So…if you want to win some SAS2 and if we sell a few irons…maybe we can give on away too!!!

Tell me about YOUR iron…what do you have? Do you love it?

Today we are having a little party at the warehouse…everyone is in the spirit!!! LB

2017 Needful Things…Day 5

DAY 5- WOOLY THINGS….

Now this might not be the wooly things you are thinking about…but just a little different..these are tools…not fabric…I have wanted these for awhile now and wanted to see them in person…I got the opportunity at Fall Quilt Market…to feel them..to justify how much they cost…they way better in person.

So…let’s take a minute to have a peek at my pressing area at home…see that beautiful towel I use to press on?

If you take the silver covering off my board it is all warped and has wood has been damaged by the steam…

The answer to this is…

What is this?…Here read for yourself…

 

I have talked to those who have used them…they swear by them…I now am a proud owner and  have been pressing away…the answer to the double folded towel that is just that…now my area also looks more professional…and yes..that’s counts.

Today is another “little man” day….so this is what I have to look forward to…wouldn’t have it any other way…

2017 Needful Things…Day 6

Day 6- Binding Clips & Pincushion/Clip holder pattern

Well.. we already talked about the correct needle for binding (I hope you have those either on the way or in your cart to purchase when the 12 Days are over) and I thought Joyce’s binding clip pincushion/needle case was awesome that she had shown me at the Ourterbanks retreat….so we have a new pattern for this necessary tool…Joyce said she like how large (5″x 9″ish) it is because it sits nicely on your chair arm and won’t get lost anywhere!!!  The kit is made  from our newest just in Needle & Thread Gatherings line of Moda fabrics…The Kit/Pattern is $18.  The pattern alone is $10…again not to sound repetitive but this would also make a fast easy gift for someone deserving, of course…

We have all sizes of clips and a pattern and kit of this pincushion caddy perfect to keep all your binding tools…the wool flap has a needle keeper for your binding needles..

Can you see how the flaps keep the clips nice and convenient?

We have the mini clips, large clips and the standard size clips on sale as well….and the prices will be on our site…

We also had a tool to hold your binding, but we will be introducing that in the new year…things just got away from me with Nick and his surgeries and Dr. appointments…and just life, I’m sure you know as it probably happens to you as well…

But I would love to give away a Kit & Pattern and some clips with a comment on this post!!!

Since I already did a binding question lets do a Christmas question…What is your most favorite Christmas candy/cookie or thing to eat this time of year?  You can also tell me about it…like if you get together with family/friends to bake or exchange…it’s alway fun to here what other do…

until tomorrow…LB
