No, not the weather Spring, but rather one of the springs in the tension system on my Gammill.
So, I’m happily quilting away on my longarm yesterday when I start getting thread break messages. Only the thread isn’t broken and I haven’t run out of bobbin thread.
That starts the investigation. And along the path I notice this little spring wasn’t there.
Now since this spring looks like this before it’s put into the tensioner, I know it isn’t completely gone.
Thankfully I keep spare parts on hand. And this also prompted me to change the felt pads in the tension assembly at the same time. And soon I was back to quilting.
What am I quilting you ask? My grand-daughter’s quilt.
I have two more quilts to do. One for my youngest niece on M’s side and one for my sister-in-law. Then all those in the family who responded to my offer of quilts will have theirs.
Oh. And I have a new chair in the studio! And it’s so pretty! (But also comfortable and functional).
