Today I had my first official lesson on the long-arm. One HUGE thing I got out of the lesson today was Confidence! Now what I need is practice, practice, practice. I learned tips and tricks for figuring out the tension and for using pantographs.
There is a computer that I can attach to my long-arm (very expensive) and I got to see it in action. I thought I would drool over it, but was surprised that I really don’t have a desire for it right now. I’m perfectly happy to do free motion and some other methods that I learned today – using rulers and using a groovy board.
After the lesson I went shopping. Oh dear. I spent a lot of money to get some special stuff.
A simple pantograph, bobbins, special pins, a stylus attachment, a Baptist fan groovy board, and some special rulers with the table attachment. I should be set for a while – until I see another groovy board I want.
