I’ve been bondingJanuary 26, 2006
I’ve been bonding with my new Prodigy longarm quilting machine. And I am having so much fun! I think this new machine and I are going to get along just fine.
It is a lot like learning how to sew all over again, though. I’ve had to learn how to wind the bobbin, how to adjust the thread tension and the bobbin tension and how to time the whole machine.
I’ve learned that all of the tracks have to be clean and smooth. I was quilting along and it started doing this lurching thing every once in a while; it felt like we were running down a dirt road. It turned out that there was a thread wrapped around one of the wheels and every time the wheel ran over it, it lurched.
But I am so excited about the possibilities. I can just imagine Victorian houses stitched very large and very detailed!
