    2016 APQS Lenni purchased new in November of 2016. 10 foot table with bliss track. Includes Hartley acrylic table for ruler work, Hartley fence, templates and circle maker, micro handles, and zippered leaders. Machine is in perfect condition and runs like a dream. I am upgrading to a larger machine.  I am in Southern Calif, but will ship as i have the original box for the machine. Email me for pictures and additional info.

    I am very happy to report that I received my new Lenni a few weeks ago and am loving it. I have quilted three quilts so far, have done my first panto and was very happy at how it turned out. Love the stitch quality and am very excited to be able to get all these quilt tops done and out of my hair before the holidays.

    I just got notification that my new Lenni is shipping in the day or two. I can't wait so excited so I just had to let everyone know.  I am a bit nervous to as this is my first longarm. I will probably have lots of questions.

    Enjoy your new Lenni!!
    Take it easy and relax. I know easier said than done. Read through some of the past topics on tension. Pick a thread like So fine or glide. Work with that thread until you get the tension right. Some people do the drop test for bobbin tension. Jamie Wallen has a good YouTube https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Q1mRhcquZTM
    I couldn't get my bobbin tension right using the drop test, so I bought a Towa gauge. I use a Towa gauge on every bobbin. That saved my sanity. You need to find the tension your machine likes. Some machines like 170-180. Mine actually likes 250.
    Play with the three hole thread guide if you're having problems. When using glide, my Millie likes it when I only go through one of the holes.

    You are going to love your Lennie.  I wouldn's listen to other people horror stories on tension.  Watch the YouTube video on bobbin tension from Jamie Wallen and you will have the majority of your tension problems solved right there.  The rest will be easy peasy.  Just be patient and practice, practice, practice.  You will have it down in no time.

    First off Congratulations, your going to love Lenni once you bond. Each machine is different; some threads work well and others don't. My advice would be not to cheap out on the type of thread you use. I have had more trouble with cheap off brand threads than I have had with quality brand names. What is nice about APQS machines, besides their quality and ease to use, is the customer support. The Forum here has a wealth of knowledge and the members are so helpful. As mentioned above there are numerous you tube videos regarding thread tension you can watch and don't forget to look through the many past post about thread tension here on the Forum. Good luck and have fun!
