  2. This Pfaff Hobby 1200 Grand Quilter has only been owned by me. It has been well cared for and operates smoothly. This machine is straight stitch only and is semi commercial with a lot larger motor than a standard household machine. Can be picked up, or you can pay postage and handling and it can be shipped upon secured funds. Major features of the Pfaff Hobby 1200 Grand Quilter Preowned • Sews up to 1600 stitches per minute • Straight stitch only so you get a true straight stitch with no variance. • Telescopic thread stand • Speed Control • Built in scissor • Needle Up/Down • Side Load metal bobbin • Adjustable Pressuer Included with this offer is • Pfaff Hobby 1200 machine • Foot Control • Power Cord • 2 Bobbins • Pack of needles • Standard Foot • Freemotion Foot • Copy of manual $550.00 (( I have been sewing for over 40 years and I can say that this is one of the best sewing machines that I have ever bought. It is a semi-industrial machine and goes through heavy or light fabric easily.)) These machines do not have feed dogs that drop, so you cover them with a plate. I tried free-motion quilting with it and it was very nice. The power is certainly there for home decor fabrics and quilting. At the time I bought it, the walking foot did NOT come with the machine and it would be $100+ extra if purchased. Since they were sold out, hubby got that for me too, and it was shipped. Since it is extra. it isnt included in the price of the machine, but I will sell it for an additional $50.00.. It does also have the built in speed control, and can be used with a mechanical floating frame like a Grace frame.(not included)
  3. It is possible to get a bad needle. Try changing to another new one and see if that helps. I have never had an entire pack be a problem but I suppose it could happen.
  4. I’ve seen some of the posts about thread breaking/shredding, but my question Is a bit different ....can a new needle actually cause thread shredding? After many issues with tension — which I finally resolved— things were humming along somewhat smoothly. I decided it was probably time for a new needle. After I changed it, I started having issues with the thread breakage and shredding. I hadn’t changed anything else — the thread, thread path, tension, etc. is the same. The new needle is one that came with my Lenni. Any ideas what I can check?

    Stitching Problem

    If your tension is tight on top, and the bobbin tension is moderate, and you're still getting flat lines on the back, your quilt sandwich might be too tight, or your hopping foot may be too low. It could also be that your leveling roller is set too low, causing the quilt sandwich to forcefully drag on the needle plate. Check them out as well. Jim
  8. And of course I recently renewed my subscription !

    George Deluxe Table

    Echo; If you are talking about the old style fold out table with drawers, folded the table is 62"Lx24"Wx28"T with the wheels off. It is 31" tall with the casters on. The casters just push into the bottom of the table, and come out with a firm tug. With the wheels off, the one my friend sold recently fit easily with the head and other items in the back of a Subaru Forester.

    George Deluxe Table

    If it is the one from APQS it folds flat. Very nice table. I believe it would fit in an SUV.

    George Deluxe Table

    I am looking at a used George that comes with a "Complete Quilting System and Deluxe Table". To move it, it will not fit in my SUV. My question is, can the table be taken apart and re-assembled? If so, it will fit. Thanks, Echo

    Stitching Problem

    Ann: It's probably caused by how the bobbin thread is pulled when you change directions. I'd suggest that you try increasing your tension to overcome this dynamic. Good luck. Jim
  21. Thanks Cathy! He is such a little cutie!!!
  22. Does anyone know why my machine would be stitching fine on top and most of the stitches on the back are ok. But moving my machine right to left or diagonal the stitches seem to flatline. I’ve tried everything. Tension, new needle, thread. I’m not sure what else to do?
