JillRN1995 Posted February 6, 2020 Report Share Posted February 6, 2020 I am a new owner of a Lenni, and I need advice for three issues that I have encountered while quilting a queen size quilt. 1. The brake on the take up roller isn't tight enough when the weight of the nearly completed quilt is rolled on it. I have engaged the brake as tightly as I can, but it still releases. How do I rectify this? 2. I have occasional issues with the needle down button. It doesn't happen every time, but sometimes the needle goes down, raises and then automatically goes down a second time. I've noticed this when I am at the end of a row and I want to pull up the bobbin thread so that I can cut both threads. For example, my stitching ends in the needle down mode, so I press the button to raise the needle. Then I move the machine to lengthen the needle thread. Then I re-position the machine in the original location and I press the needle down button again. It goes down, raises, and goes down again. I then have to repeat the process of moving the machine to lengthen the needle thread and it usually works fine the second time. Is this a problem with my technique or with the machine? 3. I am almost at the end of quilting a queen size quilt. There is excess fullness in the quilt top toward the end of the quilt. What can I do to prevent this from occurring with my next large project? My quilt appeared to feed evenly throughout the process because the seams in the quilt remained parallel as I completed the rows and advanced the quilt. I attached pictures for clarification. I am scheduled to attend my new owner's lesson later this month. Thank you, Jill Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
