I was certain that once the vegetable harvest was done, many hours would be freed up to spend at my sewing machine; but no, after the vegetable were picked, they had to be put up. Many quarts of salsa, dozens of ears of corn, beans, carrots, pints of beets and gallons of tomato puree. My upright freezer is so full I don't have room from my monthly groceries.
Anyway, I'm really excited that I finally have my Longarm put back together. I just wish I had done it months ago. Now I remember why I hesitated; Tension. Tension. The one word that brings on more tension. Urgggg. This is supposed to be a time of joy and celebration. Besides, its Christmas. I have a whole list of gifts I could be making with my Longarm but URRRGGGG is all I can do right now.
I operate a Mega 18 from Husqvarna. Yes, they make sewing machines too guys! After all, the sewing machine is a lady's favorite power tool! It almost seems this machine has been vexed from day one. When I first assembled the frame and installed the machine, it just would not run right. I double and tripled checked everything. After I had the dealer come out to check things, it became obvious it was an in factory setting that caused the problems. Now I've got a tension problem. I've checked and cleaned everything. Unfortunately my dealer is no longer in business. Thanks to the net, I'll should be able to find more than I want to know about troubleshooting my machine and hopefully start my gifting projects (for next year) soon!
I am working on one project though, using a pattern downloaded from one of my favorite google communities; will post some pics soon.
