Letter From The Top
Dear Friends, 
Welcome to your October Newsletter.  We're thankful for people like you who take the time to read and keep up with our efforts to provide you with great customer service.  This newsletter contains our usual listing of forthcoming classes and events as well as the good news that we opened a new store last week in Indianapolis.  We are thrilled to have this opportunity to be closer to so many of our loyal customers and for the privilege it will afford us to meet new people there and in surrounding communities who have an interest in longarm quilting.
    Along with this month's new store opening, from North to South we have a full schedule of weekend shows where we'll be demonstrating and selling Innova machines.  Providing these venues closer to you is just one of the ways we strive to make your longarm quilting easy.
    So please, step out this month to meet us.
Best regards,
Jeff Benedict

Quilter of the Month: 
Mari Paradise has been quilting for 30 years.  The colors and the designs are her favorite aspects of quilting.  She does not make the same quilt pattern twice, she loves the variety.  She decorates her home with her quilts as the seasons change.  She also incorporates applique in to her quilt designs.  The quilts on display this month illustrate her love of color and the bold patterns that she chooses as she learns new techniques. 
Mari completed the License to Longarm class this past August.  She is also very active in the Sewcial Quilters Guild, in Lavergne, Tennessee.   She is currently serving as the Vice President of the guild.

teckTech's Tips
Making sure your machine is level ensures great stitch quality. 
Droopy edges after loading a quilt?  
Check to make sure the post (holding the take-up and leveling bars) on each end of your frame is truly vertical. To accomplish this, place a leveling tool on the back side of the post and use your ½" wrench to slightly loosen the two bolts holding the post. (only slightly!) You can then adjust the post to vertical, hold in place and tighten down the bolts. As always, you can call us anytime to talk you through it!
