I do a lot of ruler work and it seems I fight my side clamps constantly. I use a curtain rod to elevate them, but they still cause havoc and it's just because they are heavy and hang down too low. I don't want to tighten them too much as they exert uneven pressure on the backing and can throw the quilt out of alignment. Has anyone switched to either EZ Grip Side Clamps or Red E Edge Side Clamps? Input and recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
I think I have done a total of 4 quilts on my new Millie. For some reason when I was doing a quilt yesterday, the side tensioning clamps kept catching on the left side of the Millie and messing up my border stitching. I do not remember having this issue on the other 3 quilts that I did. I tried putting a ruler on the poles to raise up the clamps, but that didn't work, it still got caught. It seems for some reason the clamps are sinking lower than on the previous quilts. Does someone have a suggestion on this. It was really irritating Thinking out loud here.....could it be that I don't have the elastic pulled tight enough...........I did try that and it was pulling on the backing so I loosened it up again. TIA
