I love my new Freedom, but after having owned several different machines, I really dislike that the distance between the edge of my quilting space and by body is a full 8.5-9" due to the placement of the backing roller. If the backing rollers sat immediately below the "top" roller, that amount would be reduced by a full 4", which is a lot when you consider the area of work space you have the greatest amount of physical control of your machine for detail work. My question--has anyone repositioned their backing roller, or, alternatively, swapped the backing roller with the top roller, eliminating the existing backing roller? (I'm not sure that would even work due to elevation.) I don't want to just remove the top roller to float my top--I want to eliminate the wasted space to get closer to my work. I would prefer to keep both rollers, because I like the resistance the top roller provides, even when I don't pin to it. If so, what have you used for a brake?
