I can not find the reason why my tin Lizzie started skipping stitches. 6 good and then a long one missed?????
I have cleaned and oiled the machine made sure I had a new needle in the correct position, checked the encoder, re-threaded and still can not figure out why my Lizzie is not talking to me

I bought a used Gammill in mid-April--but April though mid-June were so busy with the school year ending and settling my Mom's estate, that my only quilting on it amounted to practice cloths. I retired in mid-June and 2 days later had knee arthroscopy--blah! Standing was tough. By mid-July I was "back in the game" and have done some charity tops and a couple of baby quilts. Put my first "real" bed size quilt on yesterday and started my custom quilting today. Dang--I wish

My birthday is coming and my boys want to get this mom something. I was thinking I would love to have this software, but I keep reading how this software is not easy to use.

ANYbody out there got any fabric with the blue/gray or white Ford Tractor????
