Gosh Lisa. I wish I had some advice but I'm not that familiar with how the Gammil is constructed, but could it be a leveling issue or a frame warp issue. Been there and had that happen. I do, however, want to let you know that I have the two machine set up for almost 6 years now. My computerized machine is my weekly bread and butter baby as I do quilting as a means of income, and my free form machine is for my show quilting. It has worked great for me, and I am sure when you figure your problem out, it will work great for you too. Don't give up. You will figure out the problem.
