Every longarm quilter - no matter the brand of machine being used - has experienced those dreaded tension headaches while quilting.
Understanding how machine tension functions and how the stitch is made is essential to understanding how to adjust a longarm machine's tension. During this lecture/demo, Michelle will lead students through a practical step-by-step approach to perfect tension by first explaining the fundamentals of tension and then by detailing the necessary steps to achieve that perfect stitch.
