TNT (Threads, Needles & Tension)
Lose that Tension Headache! Handi Quilter Education Coordinator, Vicki Hoth, leads longarm quilters through everything they need to know about TNT: Threads, Needles and Tension.
TNT video : Congratulations Handi Quilter! The video is so full of vital instructions & I'm going to review segments in the post video. You're taking the fear out of adjusting tension! The "dot" on the top tension is a great tip. I need to purchase the horizontal spool holder! Will tell friends about your monthly video. Thank you! ~ NancyG
owner : Thank you so much for the video. It is loaded with so much information. I can't wait for the next video. Again THANKS< CarolH ~ Carol
WOW! Great Tension Video : This is exactly what I needed. I have suffered from tensionitis for too long. This video is the cure. Thank you so much for explaining how to get perfect stitches. I was sick of not being able to accompllish good tension on the top and bottom at the same time. ~ M A Deutsch
TNT Video : Thank you! While I was taught all these techniques, I'd forgotten some of the fine points. Everyone should review this video periodically! ~ Brita
HQ Tension Education : Many thanks for this valuable information on Threads, Needles & Tension. Keep the HQ Education coming! ~ LuAnn Kessi
TNT really is dyno-mite!! : I LOVED this video! It is exactly what I needed as a brand new onwer of the Avante 18 and the visual on the bobbin tension made all the difference! good close-ups too...which helped tremendously as well. I will review this MANY times as I learn how to get perfect stitches with many kinds of threads. ~ Kathy Booth
Owner : Thank you! I needed this, was having difficulties with tension! Have spend many hours taking out stitches. Will watch this again. ~ Giraffiks
long arm quilter : I am sooooo pleased with this video. It has helped me out a great deal. I have been having some issues and this has given me alot of guidance. Thank you ~ nena
TNT : As a brand new longarmer, I was having problems with nesting thread on the bottom of my quilt. After much hair pulling and teeth gnashing, I watched this webinar. My needle was in backwards. Duh. Great Video...I learned so much, Thank you. ~ Joanne
TNT : Very helpful video. Like some of the other folks, I too couldn't get the tension/bobbin correct. I'll try again and see what happens. Thank you. P.S. How do we practice on smaller quilts? ~ koalaB
newby : need contrast of color with thread and background ~ Carolyn
TNT video : What a super video. It was really helpful!!! ~ TNT Video
