  1. Longarm Issues - Encoder

    by , 09-30-2012 at 10:19 PM
    My husband and I spent yesterday in a class learning how to do maintenance on my Gammill. It was a long day, but I feel like we learned a lot and I know that I am not as afraid of the machine as I was before.

    However ... I loaded a quilt on the machine today and could not get the darn thing to work in regulated mode. It worked great in manual (I'm not very good at keeping stitches even so I don't usually use this - will definitely need to practice). I was SICK!

    I unloaded ...

    I recently took a quilting class for a victorian table runner, but we did not get far enough to learn how to bind the darn thing. It has curves and inside angles.

    I'm assuming it needs to be bound with bias binding, but I do not understand the tutorials I've found online on how to make bias binding.

    by , 09-29-2012 at 05:51 PM
    First, I want to thank my husband for spending his day off learning how to maintain my longarm machine. We took a class with Ron Paul and he taught us so many things. I am anxious to use my machine to see if the adjustments we made helped with any issues I may or may not have known I was having - lol

    But, one thing I know for sure, it is all clean, oiled and the settings are just perfect - now to load a quilt and take it for a spin.
