  1. Yes, Sheri, I am talking about the sneaker foot. I looked on the store here and it just looked short. I am out of town for a funeral so I will look at it when I get home. I have never taken the hopping foot off the machine that I have. Once I look at my machine I am sure I will see what needs to be done.

    Thank you,


  2. The only foot I have for my Lenni is the hopping foot that is standard on the machine. I think I would like an open toe foot so I can better see where I am stitching and on the store page I see that it cost $100. That seems like a lot of money and would like to know if any of you would recommend getting it. And is there anything else I would need to use the open toe foot.


  3. I have had my Lenni for a year now and had some difficulties along the way. Most of my problems was the tension. I really had a lot of problem there and want to venture out in using different threads. I started using glide on the top and sofine in the bobbin and I really had problems getting the tension good so I tried using glide top and bottom and I did not not have the tension problems. My question for the day is, I want to use sofine in top and bottom and would like to know if this is a good idea and if not what am I getting myself into?


  4. I have a customers quilt and it has very think seams, like when points meet. I am not sure the machine is going to go over them without breaking a needle. These seams are very thick. Should I try to do this quilt or just say I can not do it. I will be doing a pantograph on it, if I decide to do it. I have a Lenni and love it and do not want to break it.

  5. It is more in the middle. I did take a really small crochet hook and poked it through the backing very carefully and got some of it out. It looked like trashy greasy thread. I got as much out as I could and will show it to my friend to see what she thinks if anything. I know I will examine the batting from now on.

    Thank you for replying to my post.

  6. I just finished quilting a quilt for a friend and had an experience that I have never seen before. She gave me warm and natural batting that she cut from a large roll which I do the same thing. I loaded the quilt backing then the quilt top and the batting last. The batting from the big rolls are folded with the right side on top so I just found the center at both ends and loaded it. Quilted the whole quilt and took it off my machine. I was checking for any loose threads and I ran my hand over the quilt backing and I felt a lump. It looked like a dime size grease blob under the backing. I was not a happ camper. I know it was not on her backing fabric because I ironed it before I loaded it on my machine. I am not sure what to do to get it all out.

    Has anyone ever had this problem and if so what did you do to get rid of it?

  7. I just finished the top of a,Diamond Double quilt and have been trying to decide what to quilt on it. I was going to do one of my pantos but their is lots of light colors and I have two borders that are dark and I do not think I will like the look of a dark thread on the light parts or a light thread on the dark parts. Right now I am considering just a stitch in the ditch and scallops on the borders. Any suggestions out there? This is a picture of the quilt.

    Thank you for any suggestions on this.
