    AHuffman got a reaction from quilterkp in Another question about t-shirt quilts.   
    I typically use a grey Omni thread with Hobbs poly batt on the tshirt quilts I do for customers. I use a wide open meander and the shirts have all been stabilized with a non-woven fusible interfacing. I make sure not to leave any area bigger than a generous fist unquilted. They go FAST and I can make really good money doing t-shirt quilts- especially if my computer is stitching them while I'm working on something else.

    I recently installed LeaderGrips on my new Millie and did a blog post about how I sewed the casings and some modifications I made to increase the strength in the junction points. You might find it helpful. It is over on my blog.

    AHuffman got a reaction from Ma Hawkins in 2013 Lenni on NEW table (your choice of size) w/ 1 yr warranty $7900   
    Sold! 
    I have a sweet Lenni who has barely been used here in the APQS showroom in Louisville, Ky.
     
    He was born in 2013 and  has been babied all of his life. He has upright handles, 20" throat, stitch regulation, interchangeable hopping foot, L bobbin, and a manual horizontal channel lock. He has never been "owned" by anyone. He has only been used in the showroom for the occasional class and test drives. He comes with a 1 year APQS factory warranty and a new table- your choice of size, 10 or 12 foot.
     
    Lenni would ship directly to you with a stand alone bobbin winder. He is a GREAT machine! If you'd like to add Bliss to the table it is an additional $1,000. If you'd like more info about the machine, click here. 
     
    If you'd like to snag Lenni, all we'd need is a $500 fully refundable deposit! Give me a call (502) 718-7148.

    Try going around the wheel one more time with the thread. Sometimes certain threads don't "grab" the ridges in that thread break detector wheel and when the wheel doesn't spin it will set off the thread break alarm. Let us know if that helps!

    I'll be teaching at MQX this year. The Beginner class I'm teaching would be perfect for you.

    Good question! I saw that too but I'm not aware of any coupon codes. I'm going to look hard and if I find one, I'll post it here.

    I think this is great - especially for those who don't have easy access to classes.   I wish something like this had been available when I first started.   I learned a lot of DVDs from various pros.

    Chris,
    Take a look at my tutorial and you'll see it. I didn't use the shrink wrap to connect the pieces of tubing. Instead I used a dowel screw which is much more stable and, I found, easier for me to install. 
     
    HTH!

    Bonnie,
    When I started using Red Snappers I couldn't turn the pages in a book for about 4 days. After those first four days it didn't hurt my hands, though. I've found the LeaderGrips didn't need that breaking in period. With the slight modifications I made to the Leadergrips I'm happy with them. If I hadn't made those modifications I don't think I would be as happy. Also, I found the Red Snappers are heavier and I found I would bump into them on the first pass of a quilt. I'm not finding that difficulty with LeaderGrips.
     
    Plus, I really like the LeaderGrip company and I wanted to support them.
