Someone told me that you shouldn't have anything magnetic (pin cushion, seam guide, etc) near a computerized sewing machine as it could mess up the board. Does anyone know if this is true or just one of those things that go around? It did make sense to me as magnets are not good for personal computers but I don't know anything about how a computeriized sewing machine works.
It may have been true at one time, but I think now days, there isn't enough power in the magnets that are made to use on your sewing machine that they will do anything to your machines insides.

2.) Mary Ellen's Best Press Starch Alternative -- this stuff rocks! I love it on clothing and quilting fabric!
I bought some of Mary Ellen's Best Press Starch Alternative at my LQS and have been using it on my One Block Wonder quilts. It has helped so much in keeping my bias edges from streching while sewing the hexagons together. I just went to look on Mary Ellen's website to see what it sells for there... and I was surprsied to see that they now have gallon refill sizes. That is like getting TWO bottles for FREE.. and better yet, you don't have to buy a new spray bottle each time you run out.
I was so hoping for a less expensive way to get more of this stuff rather than having to buy a spray bottle each time I ran out. And they also have a new UNScented, so if you didn't like any of the scents they offered, or didn't want any scents in your quilts, you can now get it unscented.

I send mine to http://www.lpsharp.com/3.html and exchange them for new ones. Sure you have to pay but there is no hassle. I think I got my new blades before the check cleared the bank.
I've tried sharpening and was not impressed.
