    Pricing question on quilt

    Let it go. If you quilted what was requested in the price range you quoted, then you did nothing wrong. (Lovely quilting, by the way) There could be a boatload of reasons that she has moved on to another quilter; the most likely being that she wants custom quilting for pantograph pricing. Your business plan should not include financing others hobbies. Do not underestimate or undervalue your worth or skills!

    ? on Millie

    The handles are adjustable. See those four black knobs between the handles; tighten or loosen those screws for handle adjustment. Some like their handles tight in one position, others loose so that they can be raised or lowered without changing the knob tension. I have an older Millie with the "knobbed" handles with control buttons, but the rest of the handle should be pretty much the same - a 4 inch circumference.

    herringbone quilt top

    It would probably be easier to offer suggestions if you could post a pic of the quilt top.

    Featherlite Clamps or Red E Edge Side Clamps???

    Not Sharon . . . . but you use the curtain rod to elevate the elastic and OXO clamp. Just one of those cheap adjustable rods with a curve end; you lay it across the bars, about 8-10 inches from the edge or your quilt where the OXO clamp is, with the elastic running over top of the rod. Anything long enough to rest across the bars will work, just needs to keep the elastic and clamp elevated slightly so the machine can move smoothly to the far edge of your quilt without running into the clamp.

    Featherlite Clamps or Red E Edge Side Clamps???

    Go to your local hardware or kitchen store and buy a couple of OXO bag clamps. The red ones that are about 4 inches wide and have a hole in the handle part. They are much lighter that the steel ones that come with the machine, and the wider "mouth" makes a better hold. Cut the elastic off the old clamps, tie or sew it through the hole of the new clamps . . . done.

    Crazy Machine

    Might be burning dust, if your machine has been sitting for a long time; or one of the wiring connections. Probably best to call the factory.

    Depends on what size table you have. I think the Lenni is available with 8 - 10 or 12 foot tables. Any batting fibre can be used in any machine, just make sure that the batting is suitable longarm quilting.

    Looking for a pattern!

    Go to and contact them. Maybe they have the pattern under a different name. Good luck in your search.

    Needle Breaks

    Make sure you have the needle screw tight. Not just finger tightened but with a screw driver with a long shaft; more torque, more tight.
