  4. Hi Jim, Thank you so much for giving me a detailed explanation. It was very helpful. My question about the XL Twin is regarding the amount of quilting field that is lost as the quilted quilt is rolled up. FWIW, I live in a warm climate, so I use thin batting. My favorite is 100% bamboo by Winline textiles, so my quilts will not be as bulky as they would be with a thicker or more puffy batting. Most of the quilts that I make are about 60 x 72". I have pieced one king size quilt, and I didn't think that i would ever finish it. I would like the ability to quilt a queen size, but I would be willing to pay someone to quilt a king size. I have 13' 7" of available space along one wall. But, there is a closet on an adjoining wall, so the louvered doors would reduce the available space to 12' 8" when they are open. I don't want to block access to that closet. Would a 12' frame work in that space and still allow me to maneuver around it? A 10 foot frame would fit the space better. I would like to have a stitch regulator and the ability to layer my quilts on a roller system. I enjoy ruler work, and I suspect that method would be easier with a stand up system. I enjoy custom quilting, but I would like to have the option to use a pantograph. A friend told me that Lenni would not allow me the ability to quilt a 12" block on point. My response was that I would not make quilts with that design if that is a limitation of the machine. I just don't want to end up with too little quilt-able space as the quilt is rolled up. Many people rave about the Bliss system on the forum, but I'm concerned that it might cause the machine to move too easily for me. I visited a Handiquilter dealer before I purchased George, and I tested their Simply Sixteen machine on their Little Foot Frame. That machine moved far too easily for me. It was so sensitive that I think that it would have moved if I blew on it. I am under the impression that the Bliss system isn't needed with Lenni because it isn't as heavy as the larger machines, but I don't know if that assumption is correct. Jill
  5. Please share with us what was wrong, and how you fixed it. It will help others who might have a similar problem. Thanks. Jim
  6. Jill: Brenni hasn't visited this sight since she sold her Lenni, so you might not get a reply from her anytime soon. I have a tricked out Ult 2 which isn't exactly the same as a Lenni, but they share the same basic sewing head, as does your George. This one had a 10' table which is a bit unusual. Most have 12' tables. Unless you absolutely can't fit a 12 footer in, or you can make a great buy on one like this, I'd recommend you buy 12', not the 10'. As far as quilt size goes. This 10' table should have been able to handle a quilt up to about 100 inches wide. You reference an "XL twin" as an example. I'd remind you that you could easily orient such as quilt on your leaders so that it could be any length you'd like. The only size that would be an issue would be a quilt that is more than 100 inches in both width and length. A pretty good size king. The quilting field on my Ult 2 is about 14" wide. I think the factory Lenni's are a little bit less - 12.5" to 13.5" or so. As for frame quilting compared to a sit down quilting, it pretty much is an issue of standing or sitting (although a rolling saddle stool will let you sit and quilt on the frame). If you don't like to stand the Lenni might not be the right choice. On the other hand if you're tired of wrestling with the quilt to do free motion quilting, then you'll probably love Lenni. What type roller system you buy is purely a matter of choice. Wheels or wheels and linear bearings. I find nothing wrong with all wheels, others seem to really value the linear bearings. It's only a matter of your willingness to pay for the bearings. The linear bearings are better, not worth it to me, but obviously worth it to some others. I must emphasize, my Ult 2 is custom made for me, so it really suits my desires, as such a Lenni might not suit me as well, but I am very happy with it. I sometimes think I'd like it better if it were bigger, and then other times am happy it is the size it is. I guess that's really an issue of speed of production. There's nothing that can be done a bigger machine that can't be done (maybe there is - wide pantos) on a Lenni. It just might take a bit more time to do it. Whether you should go from George to Lenni, is a matter of standing vs sitting, and wrestling vs freely moving the machine. Hope this helps. Jim

  16. Hi Brenni, I see that you sold a Lenni machine and that you bought another one. Will you please share your thoughts about Lenni? I have a George and now I’m thinking about buying a stand-up longarm machine. What is the largest quilt that you have quilted with it? Have you encountered a problem with the quilt-able space when you quilt a long quilt such as an XL twin size? Did you order the Bliss system on your new Lenni? If so, then please comment about your likes and dislikes about it. Have you encountered any limitations? If so, then please elaborate. Thank you! Jill M

  19. Carefully check your thread path. It sounds like you might have upset the threading. Make sure all the guides are properly threaded, and that the thread is properly seated in the tension disks. Good luck. Jim
