    Sharon, thank you so much for taking the time to answer my questions! The article had great information, thank you for that also. I purchased a used Lennie and this was pretty much my first quilt on it, except for practice pieces. The front looked great and I while I looked at the back, obviously I didn't look at it close enough and I about fainted when I noticed those spots. Since this was the back of the quilt, I will try tightening the top tension a little. I used Superior Omni Thread, 40 wt on the front and back. I used a Panto; not near ready to try free motion! The panto is from Urban Elementz and it's called Vintage. I attached a couple more pictures, my first try at flying geese - they were really fun to make! Thanks again Sharon, it means a lot just to hear someone say "it's okay"! Donna

I'm a newbie and am seeing the "flatlining" issue. It's short little bursts of flatlining, and I didn't notice until I took the quilt off the machine. I'm so thankful for all the information on this site, I plan to use all of it until my problem is fixed. The question I have though, is this: What about this quilt I just finished? Is it ruined, will the back stitching fall out the first time I wash it? I kind of planned to give it as a gift, I'm sure the person receiving the quilt won't notice, but I'm afraid it will pull apart when it's washed and I'll look like a fool...I am examining it too closely? Thank you for any and all advice! Quote Edit Quote this Reply to this topic...

    Hi again, I have more questions. Can you post a couple of pictures, does this table have the channel locks and can you tell me why you are selling? Thanks!
  10. Is this machine still available?
  11. Do you know what it would cost to ship? I think this is a wonderful deal, unfortunately, I'm in MN.

    Can you tell me what is the longest piece of the table? When taken apart, would the longest part be 10'?
