Or at least it makes you a lot better.
I spent today working totally in manual mode since while I started in manual mode when I got my machine I was lured to
dark-side regulated mode quickly but still believe that most really good longarm divas have deep mastery of manual so I wanted to get back into that groove.
Here I was just goofing around with some pebbles but the stitches are choppy at 35% in manual.. the next sample I did was much smoother at 47% ( but of course I am a goober and did not shoot a photo of that!). I really should have put in an object reference.. the square of fabric was 4x4 inches so each of those circles is about 1/2 a dime size give or take a bit. The large circles were me doing the tension test for with my circle rulers which I will be posting about in the next days soon as I get one little matter worked out in my little surprise for you :)
