    Hi Everyone, Hurricane Utah here.

    While I like that these webinars are trying to get a lot of information out to folks that don't have years of experience or access to classes, some of the information presented is just patently wrong. For example, ball point needles are for stitching on knits as the ball point does not pierce the knit, which could result in pulls. Universal needles are used for piecing cottons. When the speaker does not know, she should refrain from stating anything. I have been quilting for over 30 years and have gone to many classes and seminars to improve my understanding of the mechanics of quilting, not just matching fabrics and piecing. Please improve these aspects of the webinars.

    If you are making a quilt with a pattern like in the Bear Paw block and wanted the paw or the claws to be the focus, what would you do?

    I've missed some of your live feed so not sure if anyone has asked..... I'm learning to free motion on my Pfaff machine. I'm in conflict with needles and thread. Is there a basic rule of thumb? What is the best needle and thread for FMQ?
