I just returned from Lori Clayton’s shop “Threads Run Through It” in Phenix, Va. Lori is my long arm deader/service/trainer for my Staler-Gammil long arm machine. I have had my machine since August and knew the bare basics of using it. Further training was available but time wasn’t until now.
I drove about 4 hours thru the Shenandoah Valley region and on Skyline Drive famous for the mountainous and fall foliage. It was a bit early and the colors of autumn were only hinting of what is to come. Another week or so will be beautiful there.
Lori welcomed me into her home and shop. I learned a lot about what my long arm machine can do. I am eager to apply all I learned to quilt some of my many UFO’s.
