Richard finished my frame this morning! :) I am one happy girl! I still need to stain some of the wood but I will get that in a few days. I just love it! It is a very sturdy 12 ft frame! I can also use a larger machine than the one that I have but this will probably be the only one that I ever buy. My machine is a 13" Bailey. I really like is so far.
I attached my handles to the back because I wanted to learn how to use a pantograph. My other set of handles for the front should be delivered any day. Anyway, I loaded some fabric on to practice with. Had trouble the first thing! Took me about 2 hours to figure out what was wrong....a wonderful lady called me from the Bailey Yahoo Group and helped me. I knew it had to be something simple because I had just bought the machine and it sewed great until today. The problem was.....I HAD THE THREAD WRONG! There is another thing by the needle that the thread needed to go through and it DOES NOT show that part in the manual! So she told me that, I redid the thread and it works perfect!!!! I am so happy with my machine and frame! I plan on practicing a lot more then I will start on my 70+ tops!
