  1. $1,000 ?? BUY IT!!! I have an ULT2 and love it... a total work horse machine!
  2. if you don't have an extra table that you can put at the side or back of your sewing table, you could use an ironing board to help hold the quilt
  3. I would suggest contacting customer support with your questions. They are very good at helping. Not all video's are compatible with the ULT2 since this is an older model no longer in production.
  4. If you are talking about adjustment to the needle bar... I would test the needle bar for movement. there should be absolutely NO movement in the needle bar. If there is, then you probably need to replace the needle bar. I had to do this with my ULT 2 that I purchased used. Once I got that done, then timed the machine. I haven't had any issues since. You stated that you machine was not stitches at all? or incorrect stitches with tension and/or timing issues? I'm not totally sure of your question as to adjustment by screwing something related to the needle bar. ?
  5. Use poly extra loft for the trapunto and cotton for the foundation
  6. I am not aware of Wool Batting coming in White ... I would suggest taking a sample of your white fabric and putting it with the Natural color to see if it darkens the white. That will tell you if you want to continue to use the Natural colored batting. I have used Natural double bats with white and didn't feel like it darkened the white. But, it all depends on the White fabric and how tightly woven it is.

    Ultimate II

    I have an ULT11 and use it for business. All of the suggestions that Nigel said are things that need to be checked right off. I know that I had alot of issues with my machine when I first got it (third hand used) until I found out that the needle bar was moving ever so slightly. Once I replaced that and secured it with absolutely no movement, all my problems stopped! The thread that you use is important. My machine does not like certain brands of thread... so you will have to try a few to see what works best with your machine. I find embroidery thread works very well...Omni, Glide,
  8. It is the table and not the machine that is blissed. I would contact APQS to find out if they have a table that would fit your machine and if that table could be blissed.
  9. You need to contact APQS about a possible table that this machine can run on. Also ask about a manual One thing I would look at is the needle bar (the bar coming down from the machine that holds the needle)..there shouldn't be any movement at all. Sometimes these older machines can have a bar that has become loose just a bit and this will cause tension and stitch issues. If the machine hasn't run for a while, a good cleaning is needed. I would take all plates off and really clean things out well. Look at the bobbin casing, it will come out and probably everything there needs cleaned a
  10. The size is too small for what I was wanting. Thank you for letting me know. This price is Very Good for this machine!!!!
  11. what size head is this? 20 inch? also, would you be willing to break down and ship?
  12. Linda give good advice on the options of winding your own bobbins vs the pre wound bobbins. I exclusively use the pre wound as I found them to last longer than what I could wind myself. Also I get better stitch quality with the pre wounds. The only time I have ever had a problem is when I use a heavy weight top thread and the thinner pre wounds don't play well together. I typically do not match my thread colors, so this allows me more freedom too.
  13. I have had this problem happen and I have an older wooden table with my ULT11 machine. The Lenni doesn't have a large throat area and so you will need to move your laser light when beginning a quilt to make up for the difference of this problem. You might move it up .... you need to fiddle a bit to find the best spot when taking into consideration that your quilt is longer and you might possibly run into this problem when you get to the end of your quilt. I have also had to move my laser light when running into this problem towards the end of my quilting... it is doable but takes alot of a
