Hello there !! here I am finally after a long month of working long hours in the shop trying to make space for my Hinterburg machine quilting frame. I had purchased it while visinting my mom in Oregon back in April soooo this has been a long wait to get it over here and waiting for the right time to get it set up .
In the begging it was just a box sitting and waiting for it to be opened and put together.
I was very fortunate to have Kristine and Thomas come down to Athens for the quilt exhibit that was scheduled on the 27th of Oct. and they came down a couple of days earlier to help me ,since they have one and Thomas had put together a couple of them. Kristine and Thomas are the couple that organized that wonderfull Quilt convention in Thessaloniki in the city which they live . It was a challange finding the poles and getting them to fit , they have diff. sizes here than the U.S. We had two to choose from, one was a bit to big and the other was just a tad to small so we had to find some special caps that went around the smaller ones to make them fit ,soo finding the poles was the hardest part.
We worked well into the night getting it installed properly .
kristine has been working with that particular frame and she knows exactly how it should be.
And this is Thomas resting in my rocking chair , a well deserved rest. Know you notice the machine is my old Singer since I don't have the knew machine (Janome 1600) has not arrived yet . And to top that my machine had tension problems so , we couldn't quilt with it ,it would go and then the thread would break . I looked at it carfully and discovered that a screw is missing from the bobbin case.
