We are back to work in Lockport after a mostly restful week in rainy Ottawa. We attended lectures by Laura Coia and Bill Stearman, both fantastic in very different ways. Then we spent the full day on Saturday viewing the National Juried Show and the Merchants Mall. So much to see...
Always good to be home.
Two things more to note:
1. The long arm appears to be up and running. Hallelujah!
2. We will be closed the week of June 11-15 to attend the CQA show in Ottawa.
We are all (almost) packed up and ready to head out to Gimli tomorrow for the Lakeside Quilters Show. Maybe we will see you there.
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.
