As I write this newsletter on March 14, we are in the midst of a spring snow storm. All schools are closed, the snow plow has only been by a couple of times and the roads are not very good. I really appreciate our warm home as there are still a few in the Rochester, NY area without power from the wind storm seven days ago. Winds clocked at over 80 mph causing significant damage in many places. At one time there were over 125,000 without power. Today was also a nice day as I was able to do some quilting.
For those of you who have wanted classes and are not too far away, we now have a schedule of longarm classes covering several topics. In addition, an all-day Quiltmagine Workshop is scheduled at our studio on April 22. See more info below.
Many problems with longarm quilting are solved by following a procedure that can eliminate the problem. Below I cover problems with backing. Choosing the right kind of thread for longarm quilting is important and I have included an article with tips for thread choice. Finally, don't miss the Bright Idea at the bottom of the newsletter to help solve a problem with slippery thread.
Like you, I hope that spring is around the corner. In the meantime, have a delightful time quilting.
