Testing the repaired long arm and everything was going swimmingly until a needle broke. No big deal ... usually. But this time part of the broken needle lodged in the hook mechanism and jammed the machine. To get it out we had to remove the hook assembly and that means resetting the timing. More testing required. Good thing there is a resident repair squad.
This is where the motor is supposed to be. We've been having issues for several weeks and finally had to send the motor and the control boards off to the manufacturer in Utah.
There are a lot of shows coming up this year. As I find time I will post the ones we have info on here, but a better, more complete list can be found on the excellent Quilt Manitoba site.
While we were at the ACQ quilt show on the weekend, Chewy got to go to Camp Marion. These are before and after pictures. When we told him he was going there, he sat by the door for an hour waiting for us. When he came home, he was just zonked. It's a dog's life.
This is part of our booth at the Assiniboine Circle Quilters show on April 26-27. We were so busy we didn't get any photos from the show. But what a great show it was. So many talented quilters in this group.
Cedar House Quilting will be one of the vendors at Manitoba Prairie Quilters event on Saturday, May 4th. This is an annual exchange with North Star Quilters from North Dakota that is this year being hosted by MPQ.
And... because we are there, the Lockport Studio will be closed.
Looking forward to seeing all our MPQ friends and our ND visitors on Saturday!
Helen Maslowski is the owner and operator of Cedar House Quilting. She is ably assisted by her most charming partner Geoffrey. (Can you guess who wrote this?)
