I’m so excited about my new acquisition. It was delivered and set up yesterday.
It’s a Queen Quilter by Tin Lizzie!
I am greatly disappointed as well. This is a used machine (with a one year warranty), and Tin Lizzie tested it thoroughly before they brought it out…a 400 mile drive…and everything was working fine. Unfortunately by the time it got here, the stitch regulator cable was no longer working and the man who brought it out had spare cables…just not one for this model. So the only type of quilting I can do until they send a replacement is straight stitching like for stitch-in-a-ditch. Fortunately, when the new cable arrives, my sweet hubby can just plug it in, and I should be ready to roll. The man also made a mistake with the frame. He forgot to measure the rails, and brought 8 foot rails instead of the promised 10 footers, and the pantograph set up that came with it will only work with the longer rails. Of course I can’t really use the pantographs until the stitch regulator is fixed. The trouble with asking God to give you patience is He gives you plenty of opportunity to practice it. 🙂
In the meantime, I’ve been madly working on quilts so that I would have something ready to quilt…once I master the machine. I have one completely ready and another that just needs borders & a back made.
I hope my new cable shows up tomorrow and I will actually be able to get something done over the weekend.
