To tell the sad truth, I've been having lots of problems with tension on my longarm, and it's been really discouraging! The kind of discouragement that drives you to the floor, flat on your back, in tears--while asking yourself why you ever bought yourself a longarm in the first place!
My tension problems started while I was quilting this quilt.
I finally had to admit defeat and pulled it off to put a practice quilt on again until I figured out my problems.
|Yes, I need much more practice!|
I finally realized I couldn't do it on my own so I called my sweet dealer Renae, then ABM customer service. After an embarrassingly short 5 minutes, my problems were solved and I realized that I wasn't setting my bobbin tension high enough. Dumb. Actually, I'm dumb that I didn't. call. earlier. Three weeks of agony that were solved in 5 minutes.
Just like my husband reminds me. Nice.
So, happy days have returned, and I love my machine once again!
I've finished a couple of cute quilts since then, and I'll post about them starting tomorrow!
