    Nikki knocking

    Don't know what you mean by "knocking", but if it's a kind of popping sound, could be a bad needle. If it's a metallic click, the hook could be hitting the needle too hard. A couple of thoughts for you. When you find the problem be sure to let us know. Might help someone else in the future. Good luck. Jim

    Fons and Porter video

    I don't know about a specific Fons & Porter video, but there are a lot of YouTube videos on loading quilts. There's one a lot of people recommend called "Loading Lori's way". Whirlsnswirls quilting also has a youtube channel and I'm pretty sure I saw a video on loading. She's an APQS dealer and has several hundred short videos posted stitching out various quilting designs. APQS has lots of articles https://www.apqs.com/category/education/quilt-prep-loading-tips/ They also have a youtube channel.

    quilting on batik Faric

    You could try using a smaller needle. I'm guessing that the batik fabric was not washed, prior to using in the quilt. Heavy dyes and tightly woven fabric, make it a bit harder for the needle to go between the fibers, so it's kinda punching through.

    Lucey sewing very slow

    The first question is, have you set your stitches per inch above the minimum? In S/R mode, it won't stitch unless the spi is advanced above the minimum. Hoping it's this easy fix. You'll do fine!
