  3. YOU GUYS!!! I finally did it! After staring at them for 3 months and viewing video after video and reading and re-reading instructions, and just generally procrastinating, I FINALLY bit the bullet and attached my zippers to my leaders!!! It was pretty easy. I cannot believe I put it off so long. I know you all will understand, so I just had to share. Also, since I was fiddling around with my leaders anyway, and mine have always sagged in the center, even after I bought and installed new leaders, and rolling back and forth with the leaders zipped together didn't really improve the sag much, I decided to work on that as well. With the leaders zipped together, pulled taut with the zipper centered, I spritzed lightly with water, then skimmed the surface with a hot iron to dry it. Still sagging, so I spritzed again, turned on the ceiling fan and walked away. I did that about 4 times and they are almost completely sag free! I think I may roll the zipper to each bar and do the same technique further in on the leader on each side to see if I can get it completely taut all the way across. Still need to mark inches along the edges. Tomorrow I will get the other parts of the zippers attached to canvas tabs about 5-6 inches wide so I don't have to worry about running into zippers while quilting. I also need to get grosgrain ribbon (I guess cheap bias tape or hem tape, anything like that should work, too) in different colors. I recall seeing a hint somewhere that some smart person sewed a different color ribbon on the top of each leader and then the same color ribbon on the top side of the matching half of the zipper to make it easier to get it right when pinning/stapling/stitching the quilt parts to the zippers. I think I'll appreciate all the help I can get, because I really don't want to waste my valuable quilting time removing and re-attaching a quilt back I attached wrong. You can barely see the last little bit of sag near the center mark. (Picture was taken before I stitched the last couple inches of leader to zipper by hand...) Would love to know if you see anything that should be or could be changed or any handy hints or tips.

  5. About 1/3 through my quilting, and I’m now getting creases in my backing fabric, how can I get these out? I’ve got a lenni, and doing lots of thread changes and appliqué work, so have been rolling the quilt back and forth as I go, I did do some basting before starting, horizontally across my quilt about every 15 to 20 inches apart. I have manual advance. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, gail

  7. Is this machine still for sale --Is this available to see and do a trial run and where in Missouri are you located?
  8. Hi, I hope you found that person, and if not, then write me personally and I will send you my examples.
  9. I'm selling my 2013 Lucey with 12' table and bliss track. I've only quilted 15 - 20 quilts on it. It's a great machine, but I'm moving to a smaller studio and don't use it enough to justify keeping it. It has the smaller bobbin size, which I was advised to get because it causes fewer tension issues. I've never used the clear cover on the table for pantograph quilting, so it's in great shape, but there is some discoloration on it from sunlight. A new Lucey with bliss track sells for $14,400. I'm asking $12,000. I have the tool kit, manual, instructions, bobbin winder, and a bunch of pre-wound bobbins that I will include. Pickup only, located in Kansas City.
  10. Wilmaloo, if you go to your original post, you should be able to edit the heading to add "SOLD" to it.
  11. Hi. Yes, this machine is sold.. I can't figure out how to delete this posting, I sent a note in to the moderators weeks ago.. I'll try and edit the subject line. Thank you for your interest and good luck in your search.
  12. Beautiful! Love the feather design in the blue circles.
  13. Hi Jeannie, I can't tell if you actually received my email regarding availability of your longarm. I am interested in considering this purchase. 937-750-7446 Thank you, Marguerite
  14. I agree, great colours and wonderful quilting too!
  15. I recently finished this quilt for a customer who usually does her own quilting on her domestic machine but thought that this one was too big for her to handle. Aren't the colours just beautiful? She had already drafted most of the feather design for the background, I just added the centre part as it was too much space to be left unquilted and chose the design for the circles. We are both very happy with the way it turned out.
