Learning: Tricking out the Longarm

I added a couple of new accessories to my longarm!  I tricked it out with some new wheels that are oh-so-smooth.  I got some new gadgets to make loading and unloading the quilts much easier than pinning them on (I hope -  I haven't had the chance to try them out yet!).

Isn't that pin-pod the best thing ever?

But, my favorite new additions are a beautiful turquoise, oversized pin-pod and small felted orange bowl from Papaver Vert.  The pinpod fits snugly between the handle and the machine head and holds all my pins and other random pokey things - even my tape measure if I take the time to roll it up!  The bowl is attached with 3M sticky velcro and holds all the little bits of thread that I'm constantly clipping, so now, they won't get all over the floor.

Next time, I'll show you what I've been practicing on!

*I meant to post the next couple of entries awhile ago, but I was so busy getting ready for my trip to Virginia, that I completely ran out of time trying to finish up all the orders from my Etsy shop, teaching my Split Log Cabin class, and packing!  So, here they are now...but I'll get to all the fun in VA next week!

  1. Love the felt bowl tip - I may have to borrow it to use near my lil' Berina. Thanks!
