    Lucey vibrating

    Did try this really no difference though, the throat space on my lenni is limited maybe that is why. Any other advice? Thanks Gail

    Lucey vibrating

    Sara, did you find a solution to this. My new lenni does this as well. Vibration by about speed of 9.5 and calming down at a speed of 13 or 14. Problem is I want to quilt at a speed of ten or 11, and it vibrates and bounces so bad I can't see to quilt.. Thanks for any direction you may be able to provide. Gail

    Vibration when quilting

    I have a one year old lenni that vibrates when running, I always thought it was because it needed broke in, but not getting better. The vibration is worse when in stitch regulated mode, so bad that I can't use a panto as the vibration makes it hard to follow. I've cleaned rails, kept oiled, the table is level. It's on a 10 foot bliss table. Any suggestions on how to get the machine not to vibrate would be greatly appreciated, as getting frustrated.... Thanks so much, I get more black 'crud' built on on the front wheel on this one side, keep cleaning it with a soft cloth. Not much build up on the other side at all. Don't know if that is an indication of something out of whack. Gail

    Vibration when quilting

    Thanks, I will give it a try tomorrow and let you know
  6. My new lenni does much the same, very random, and both in manual mode and stitch regulated. Sometimes a change in top tension seems to help. Interested to hear any follow up. Good luck with your show quilt, Gail

    Lenni foot

    Just the one, but you can buy a package of 3 extra feet. These feet are interchangeable with other apqs machines.
  8. Question about ruler use on the Lenni. I've heard the base limits your quilting area by quite a bit, and was wondering what other quilters thought. Is it possible to use a short ruler, for smaller patterns with out the ruler base? Thanks, Gail
  9. I tried adjusting my needle position, from 6:30 to 6:35, seems to be working much better, not sure why, but perhaps you could try that Jackie, if you haven't already. Gail
  10. I'm using the magna glide, which I love, but still having this issue.
  11. My newer Lenni is doing the same thing. I've cleaned, oiled, changed the bobbin, and bobbin case. Mine mainly does this when changing direction, the tension seems good,

    dreaming of a Lucey

    I recently got a new lenni, with a 10 foot table, in my dining room with no room on one end and about 24 inches on the other, it's perfect!
  13. hi, I'm a new lenni owner, and have been doing sample projects for the past month. But now ready to quilt my first quilt. I use leader grips and float my top. I have it all loaded, not sure if I'm more nervous or excited! My question is can I move around to different areas of the quilt or do I start at the top and work down. I'd like to do the borders last if possible, and I have a couple of areas in the centre of quilt that I would like to start first? Any help would be very much appreciated, thanks! Gail
  14. Thanks Joan, appreciate everyone's help, and sense of humour. Feeling more then welcomed by all of you!
  15. Thanks to everyone, love your replies!
  16. Thanks, perfect glad to hear it's so flexible.

    New Lenni,

    Thank you for the helpful info, I've tried slowing down, which seems to have helped immensely. It is brand new, so lots of learning to do. And I could take some advice from the tortoise, "Slow and steady wins the race".
  18. I just got my Lenni set up yesterday, and am a total newbie to longarm quilting and free motion quilting. So pretty excited! I'm having trouble getting my tension just right, first the top thread was pulling out the quilt bottom on the turns. Now the bobbin thread is pulling to the top on turns...
