    Hi Becky,
    I tried to use link to Designs in Emb magazine. The site comes up as “not Secure”.

    • Understand. Your browser has that safety feature. But when you go to purchase the magazine you will be on a secure site.

        Hi, my computer blocks me from entering creditcard card info says site not secure….is there any other way to get the 2yrs for 1 deal?

      • Try another browser…maybe Chrome or Firefox? Unfortunately, the link is http:// which is not secure. However, once you get past that link, it goes to https:// and you can proceed from there. I’m sorry it’s such a hassle. I’ll mention it to DIME. You’re not the only one. πŸ™

    I’m sorry but I just can’t get the download files to start the project. I have tried with Firefox and internet explorer. I have right clicked and there is no command to ‘Extract All’. After downloading I go to my “Downloads” folder and see the file, the extension is ‘file’.
    I am confused. I’m sure I am doing something wrong but would love to do the embroider along with you.
    Thank you for any help.

    I have a question on the shell table runner. I have never made a quilt so I thought the table runner would be a good place to start. I have been reading and rereading the directions. The section that explains adding the backing when ready to make a quilt sandwich say to take the backing fabric and lay it “face up” then add batting and shell runner. This is the step that is done prior to quilting the shells. My question is…should the backing fabric be face up???

    • I haven’t gotten to that point yet in my sample. I can see that being the case if it were a flip and turn finish, but this one calls for a binding. I’ll check it out when I get home.

      • Sandra Dimino says:

        I have another question. According to the directions under Fabric..it says to press on shape flex to the back of the background fabric (which would be the white fabric) and the 2.5 x 6.5 pastel fabric. Nothing is mentioned about adding Pellon to the pastel 6.5 x 8.5 fabric. I’m thinking that I should add shape-flex to all..the background (White fabric), the pastel squares and the pastel smaller rectangles….or is that all too much??? Boy oh boy….the directions are not clear and I’m in the middle of cutting!

      • Nope! Do not put shape flex on the larger colored squares. They will have batting behind them. You can see it in Part 2 and 3 on YouTube. I’m about to publish Part 3 this evening, 12 Jul 19.

    • You are right! Lay the backing fabric FACE DOWN if you are doing the binding method for finishing. Good catch! Thank you for brining this to my attention. I talked about it in Pt 3. Thanks!

    Love your YouTube blog. Also look forward every morning to what going on.

    This is probably a silly question, but here goes. I am gathering the needed supplies to do the seashell runner and I was wondering why you had to use the water soluble stabilizer if you just cut it all away. Can you use another kind of stabilizer as I live in a very rural area and some of the items are hard to get? I love watching your tutorials on the embroidery machine as I have a Brother machine. It is a VM5100 Dream Creator XE and I have been intimidated by this machine since day 1. The manual alone scares me. LOL. But watching you has made me just get in there and do it. Thank you.
