I have to admit, I was not so sure how the new Elevate by Gammill was going to fit into my quilting. I am seriously passionate about freehand quilting! Up until a little over a year ago, I didn’t even have a stitch regulator (in 20 years of longarm quilting). I love everything about freehand and ruler quilting; the creativity and design aspects, as well as the physical part of actually stitching. I have to say, I had never even considered computerized quilting. When I was lucky enough to be given an opportunity to play with the new Elevate System, I was quite simply amazed! It didn’t take much playing, before it hit me … I CAN use this in my quilting. And, the ideas came pouring out. I discovered that I could have the computer stitch out a simple design, that I could add to with freehand quilting and ruler work.
