  1. Hi I'm having a great deal of problems with the backings becoming twisted and I'm wondering if the problems stems from twisted leaders. I've never replaced the leaders since I purchased my Milli 9 years ago. How often do the leaders need changing? I do have small pleats in the leaders which are impossible to get out. Has anyone else had this problem? Once the backing is loaded I've noticed that the left side hangs lower than the right side. Using the motor I will run it back and forth putting tension onto the opposite side, hoping to straighten out the backing so that it ends up being tightened evenly across the backing, but it doesn't always stay level so that when I quilt the first section there will be pleats and puckers on the back. It's very frustrating and I've wasted too many hours ripping. Hopefully someone will have some ideas to help me fix this problem. If it's the leaders, then I'll replace them asap, but hopefully there's another fix. Thanks! Rita
