I’ve been teaching machine quilting classes for more than two decades now, and I’d have to say that the NUMBER ONE issue (problem) that machine quilters deal with is thread tension. So, I’ve decided to attack this behemoth issue, and really get down in the weeds about it. I hope that after this “in-depth” discussion on the subject, it will become vastly more clear to you how the threads in your machine work, and you will have the tools (knowledge) to solve your own thread tension problems in the future.
Tips and Tricks for Better Machine Quilting
Now that my trip to Great Britain is complete, as promised, I am going to share some of my photos and insights regarding the many quilting related inspirational things I saw on the trip.
As you can imagine, the countries of Great Britain were absolutely BEAUTIFUL!
A week from tomorrow I will leave the White Mountains of Arizona and fly to Boston to meet up with my daughter, and then the following day we will fly across the Atlantic to spend 10 days in Great Britain. Needless to say, I’m really excited about this trip! My last trip to Great Britain was 35 years ago, when I was 18. This trip is a long time in the making!
Well, after my last blog discussing copyright issues in the world of quilting, I decided to do something a bit more lighthearted (and brief) this go-around. So, I thought I’d talk a bit about the strange relationship between quilters and cats, quilts and cats, cats and quilts, cats and quilters...
“Copyright”; that’s a term heard often these days, but what does it all mean? Believe me, I really don’t know all the answers, but it’s a subject I’ve been wanting to toss around for a long time, and Facebook just didn’t seem like quite the right forum. So I’m going to address some of the issues here, and I HOPE that you all will chime in at the end of the article and make comments or suggestions. I think it’s important that we all become more learned on the subject.
