Working At Last


I tried my hand at adjusting my Gammill yesterday. Lets just say I messed it up more than it was already messed up. So I got ahold of a lady from the guild that does long arm quilting as a business. She gave me the name of a guy in the area that services industrial sewing machines. She told me a little about him and how he helped her. I actually got him to come to my house today and look at my machine. He was here 2 1/2 hours and my machine sews better than it ever has. I can go fast now, I can sew in manual mode now, and my thread stopped breaking. It was like sewing with a different machine. I finished quilting the quilt I had put on the machine a while back while he was here. We tried every scenario on the machine. It was like a dream. I will definitely be using it more now. I also told him he could not move away for any reason!

That is the only thing that is stopping me from owning a longarm. I wouldn't have a clue what to do if it wasn't working correctly. Keep that man's name on speed dial...lol
