The correct needle
I have finally gotten my quilt on the quilt frame. A couple of things I question. I am having trouble finding the right needle. I have tried a couple. The fine needles bend too much and the thicker one doesn't bend, but has too big an eye to suit me. I know someone suggest both betweens & (of course) quilting needles. If I can't find either needle, what is the best "generic" type needle to use.
Also, I can't seem to keep the tension on my quilting frame. The sides are just a short block that ties to the frame. I have tightened the rollers as tight as I thought I could. I have tightened the sides once. Am I supposed to constantly tighten both the rollers and the sides"
