Another Midnight Quilter

Ideal leader width

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a 2012 Millie and had the 12' frame shortened to 11' to fit my quilting studio. I had the machine moved and installed and the leaders go right to the edge of the rollers. What is the best space to have between the leader and end of the roller bars? I am going to remove them to add a casing for the red snapper system and will shorten the width a little. I want to be sure I can make a king size quilt on the frame and currently the leaders are 115" wide.  Thanks

Going by memory as I have retired and sold my machines.  The leaders on our 12 foot were 126 inches wide and centred on the rollers which leaves about 9 inches each side.  So 126 minus 12 is 114 inches, your leaders should be ideal if your table was actually shortened 1 foot.
