Thanks to all the ladies who sent me encouraging words. I bit the bullet and sat down to insert those dingety-dangety plastic rods into the frickety-frackety casings and I got it DONE! I’m doing my happy dance now,
Now comes the next step – taking the old canvas leaders off of the poles and putting the new ones on. Then I’ll finally be able to load a quilt with the new system.
But today is an “office work” kind of day, so it will have to wait until the weekend.
