I added a pic to my last post, in case you saw it before I added it. I also wanted to say that I don't have any good shader needles, so I might be mostly lining until I get some. From my understanding, it's the machine that is the liner or shader, and I can adjust mine to either, but I've seen tutorials on shaders with multi pronged needles that act almost as brushes. I only have one pointed needles which make it difficult and painful for thick lines or blocks of color.
