  1. Hi Nigel, thank you for letting me know! Videos I've seen it seems so much faster but it sounds like it might be running properly. Thanks again for your quick reply! Nicole
  2. thank Jim. I don't mind the tight stitches either really, its just a big adjustment from my norm and I didn't want to do anything that might wear the machine long term. I'll check out the other posts, thanks! Nicole
  3. HI, my tension is even on the top and bottom but it seems very very tight, compared to a domestic especially but even compared to other videos I watch (pulling bobbin thread up and securing stitches etc) it seems very taut. Is this normal? i'm not having breakage and as I said the tension between bobbin and top seems even so i haven't adjusted, I just wanted to confirm. Also does anyone else have the stitch up/ stitch down button operate very slowly? press it and the needle takes a while to go up or down? a full stitch probably takes close to 5 seconds? I haven't adjusted anything as this is my first long arm and it could be normal and i just need to adjust to it instead of what i'm anticipating. thanks in advance. Nicole
  4. Thank you so much!!! I looked at the other post and that is absolutely brilliant and looks like it will solve my issue. Thanks again!
  5. Hi, i'm new here and I'm sure this has been mentioned but I can't seem to find the topic. I've just purchased and set up my new (to me) Lenni and loaded my first quilt. As I was basting, I had the edges of the quilt backing held with the clips to keep it more taut, but the machine head was hitting the clips as I was trying to baste down the side, causing all sorts of catching and snags and my quilt to pucker. (note I do have the base extender on my machine as I'm using ruler work for the quilting). Any tips on how to fix this? I'm sure more will come with practice etc but I thought I'd check with the experts thanks!!
