Whew what a day it has been today. Delivery of the long arm (Innova 26") came at noon today. We got all the 10 ft pieces for the rack in through the window because the back room it is in has a sharp turn to get into and no way would those poles go so in through the upstairs window. But it was very easy. Then I left the dealer to do his job and put it all together for me. Then came additional training, wow you have to futz with tension so much on these things! I think until I get a lot more practice under my belt I will run the same weight thread in the bobbin as I have in the top because trying to get the tension right of So Fine thread in the bobbin with a 40 wt thread in the top was really too much futzing about for my taste. We never did get it right. So now I practice, practice and practice. I will post pictures in a few days of it. I already know I need to get better lighting in that back room and now in addition to a fabric fetish I can add thread to the mix. I spent another $100 today just on thread and a couple of templates. At $10 to $20 a spool it wasn't difficult! I got two spools of King tut, one of So Fine, 2 of YLI and 2 of Isocord (I think that was the name) which is beautiful thread with such a lovely sheen to it. I have a lot more to learn about thread now.
