I recently added the Leader Grips to my 2008 Millenium. Since then, I have had difficulty advancing the quilt even though I haven't changed anything about how I loaded my quilts/backing. It happens when I secure the quilt top or if I float the quilt. Has anyone else had this issue? Any ideas on what I can do to resolve the issue? Thanks!
I bought a used Millie in April of 2013 did not like the way the edges of the Leader were not square and minimized the size of quilt I could put on my 12 ft frame the leaders at most were 110" of usable area SOOOO I decided to put new ones on. Now where to get canvas... hmmm ...... I went to my local fabric store they had canvas but not enough I wanted it to be as wide as my machine less about 5" for the machine to rest on the ends it was about $12.00 but they did not have enough. Then a good friend said go to the paint store they have painters canvas and it come in 12 to 20 foot widths
Okay, so I've ordered my leader grips. From what I understand, they're not too hard to attach. I've actually found a couple of videos that look pretty helpful. What I haven't been able to find, though, are instructions on how to sew the casing sleeve (right term?) into the canvas to slip the dowel into. I'm sort of assuming that I can actually do this with my longarm machine, but I could sure use some advice on exactly how to do that. Thanks. Lori Empty Nest LAQ
