  1. I have a new Lenni, she's barely 2 months old. My machine stitches perfectly most of the time ... except when I stitch from right to left in a straight or semi-wavy line. I can't go very far before the thread inevitably shreds and then breaks. I'm using Superior So Fine #50 on both the top and bottom, my needle size is a 4.0. My needle is turned to the 6:00 position. The stitches and the tension all look great until the thread shreds. Is this normal ... something I have to live with, or is this something that can be fixed? Thanks a lot for any help or suggestions!
  2. Thank you RunningThreads! I've never even heard of it, but after reading some reviews it sounds like exactly what I need!
  3. So I wanted to give an update ... I contacted APQS, and they told me to use a 3/16" allen wrench to tighten the screw behind the pressure brake. It worked! Now I can have it pretty much as tight as I want. I think the screw loosens over time, so I just have to re-tighten periodically.
  4. I'm having a similar issue with the brakes on my Lenni, and it's a very new Lenni (just a month old). It uses the single-lever pressure brake, but I can never get it very tight. As soon as the quilt starts to look kind of tight (which is how I like it) the other roller (that's fully braked) starts moving a bit. Is this normal, or is there something wrong with my brakes?
