  1. You will be thrilled. If you are keeping George, just remember, you can use your Lenni to baste your quilts. The happiest day of my life was throwing away the pins.
  2. Jill - 2019 is the new design. Small bobbin. I do love my Lenni. LuLu - Thanks for the picture. I am so thrilled to see it running with the new owner.
  3. Now having the Bliss system, it would be hard to go back. It really is a game changer. Smooth movements. I always stop needle down. I have not noticed a sensitivity issue. I actually quilted a small king size quilt with no problem by turning it 90 degrees. Queen size quilts are easy. I have quilted long twins and the rollup did not cause me any issues. You lose a little space towards the end but it was not something I remember as horrible. I bought another Lenni because the first one served me well. The new Lenni gets the job done. I wanted a longer table. I quilt a lot of baby siz
  4. It is still for sale. My husband bought me a new Lenni with Quilt Path and a longer table. I thought I could keep both machines but I just don't have quite enough room. It has a stitch regulator. I really enjoyed using this machine. Not to big, not too small.
  5. Please PM me your phone number if you want pictures. I have the machine in a space that is 11 feet by 7.5 feet. This gives me plenty of room to work from the front and back and get around on one side. You only need clearance on one end of the 10 foot length. I have mine on a wood floor with felt on the bottom of the legs. I can slide it close to the wall if I need the room for something else. The machine is 10 feet long by about 45 inches wide. There is enough room under the machine to hold my entire fabric stash in plastic bins. It is so nice to be able to load the quilt when I want a
  6. Machine is still for sale. I will consider most offers. Prefer local buyer. Thanks. Mary
  7. I will reduce the price by $300 if you don't want the extras listed. I will box it up and put in the attic at the end of the month if not sold. It is a good buy. Mary
  8. Original Owner of 2008 Lenni with 10 foot table. Asking $3800. Seller will disassemble. No shipping. Original box for machine head. Includes Bobbin Winder and Original Owner Manual. $300 in extras included - Hartley Expander Base, Vertical Cone Holder, 12 Pantos. No Warranty. Prefer prospective buyer visit to test drive before purchase. Located in Harrisburg NC outside of Charlotte NC. Message me if interested. Personal use in smoke free home. Mary.
  9. I had this problem too. I put tape around the screw gap and problem solved. I also readjusted the batting at the top of the cone so that too much thread would not be pulled. It would get caught in the screw gap when too much thread was getting through and I slowed down. As long as I was going full speed, it did not happen. When I slowed down the thread would get slack and get caught in the screw.
  10. I received mine. I am working on my quilt today. Thanks for putting this together! I am going to print the document to fabric and put it on the back. Mary
  11. I have my backing fabric ready. I need to get these in the mail so I will stop second guessing my choices. I will be sending a DC square for everyone. Mary
  12. Just curious. Would you suggest the eagle eye vertical or horizontal? Mary
  13. I have mine on a coffee table in front of my love seat. I use it sitting down. I put a chair on the end of the coffee table to catch it coming out. It still amazes me how easy it is to turn the handle with so many layers. Mary
  14. This is just off the frame. This is my version of the American Patchwork and Quilting August Cover Quilt. So-Fine Thread. Meander Circle Lord Board. The quilt took close to 100 hours to cut out and sew. My nephew will be getting this. Mary
  15. What does the Jester board look like? Do you have a link? Mary
  16. Looks great. I am thinking about getting it. Is it the dense one or the more open version? Mary
  17. I agree with Marilyn and Sue. I have to slow down and make sure I am riding a side and I slow way down at intersections or turns. I used to get a little weird point at every turn on the square 'swirls' board but slowing down and feeling the side helped greatly. I thought about what Linda suggests many times and I will try that on the next quilt to see if that helps even more. Mary
  18. Is there any update on the carriages for the Lenni? Mary
  19. Your work is beautiful and I look forward to your posts. Try not to let the people running these events get to you. Their job is to get donations any way they can. You have to believe most people have good intentions. Someone wanted to pay $20. Maybe they saw the jewel that it was and just don't have the money? Once I donated three I Spy quilts to my niece's school for their fund raiser. They were worth $50 each in materials alone. I heard they went for $20 each. I was upset until I found out the lady who bought them all was a grandmother raising her grandchildren. My sister reports that
  20. Thanks for posting. It turned out great. I have two sets from the second swap. It did not dawn on me to make a matching quilt. Thanks for the idea. I did make one quilt from the first swap using my standard pattern. After I washed them I was able to get 3.5 inch squares. Did you prewash them? How wide is your sashing? Mary
  21. On the row with the Font and size, at the right, are a couple of clip boards to allow paste. Mouse over to see what each does. I was able to paste just fine. Mary
  22. I love it. Great design, colors, and the perfect quilting design. What color thread did you use? Mary
