As I said yesterday, operating a mid arm is a real learning experience. I have been getting all kinds of advice from other mid/long arm quilters and I REALLY appreciate it! Nothing like hearing it from the experts!!
Janna from Tin Tee Pee/Log Cabin Blog suggested ‘Sew Fine Thread’ when I had a thread breaking issue. And Judi from Green Fairy Blog wrote a whole post on Quilting Threads …and Sew Fine was one of her favourites!! Well low and behold as soon as I used Sew Fine #50 Thread by Superior…no more breaking thread! It was like magic!!
On the last quilt I quilted, I REALLY wanted to use a pretty variegated blue Sulky thread so I put it on the machine and didn’t get 5” before my first break! I re-threaded the whole machine, put the bobbin in again and changed the needle…started up again and within 2”, another break! Dang! Back to Sew Fine for me…yup…you guessed it, the machine purred like a kitten! She knows what she likes…sew why mess with her!
I am now officially a SEW FINE girl! I phoned the Superior Dealer in Qualicum to place an order…Cindy was getting ready to do a thread demo in Nanaimo…so did I want to meet her at the Safeway Parking lot in Nanaimo(an hour’s drive from my house)? Sure…
Only in my case, Cindy looked nothing like Walt or Jesse…and…I’m hoping this solves my ‘Breaking Bad’ episodes!!
Yup…I have been watching too much TV…WAY too much TV!
Have a terrific Tuesday and Happy Quilting!~P
