"If its like mine it has a spring motion and you just press on it and it pops up slowly into place. Remember its slow and be sure to look underneath to see if it does have a lift or spring to help. I hope you figure it out. You inherited a wonderful…"

"This is pretty much my setup. Too funny. The only difference is I look out my window from time to time since it faces a pond and lots of birds frequent it. It also gives me inspiration and I have a small TV that I watch craft shows on and YouTube…"

"No, l use velcro. Best to put on a piece the size that needs to be rolled/ advanced so you can get practice with that too."

Violet replied to Cyndi Day's discussion Question about quilt backing.
"You can use sheets, but you will find it doesn't quilt as well as muslin. Just my opinion. Others may like sheets. I buy my bigger pieces from Fabric.com. They stock the 108 inch pieces for backing so you don't have to do seams. You can…"

"I use a chest of drawers to hold all my fat quarters. They fit nicely and I can see all the colors at a glance. It's also a great way to store all your stabilizers or patterns. Love it."

Things you might check...how tight quilt is on frame. I found if tight, l can get skips...loosen a bit & see it that helps. Second, the quilt could possibly be up too far from machine's bed. Sometimes when l've finished a long quilt, lifting takeup bar as l proceeded, l forget to lower the bar when starting the next quilt. And lastly, the foot. I have 3 feet for my machine, ruler, dish and hopper. Try a different on if you have it, as some will work on one fbric/ batting combo better than another. Longarmers have to learn that managing the quilt on the frame is just as important as seeing to machine's tension etc.

Violet, did you get your machine to work? I didn't see your post ( mid summer wedding in our family)... there's a fb fgroup called " Longarm Quilting" that can really be helpful...otherwise, my suggestikn would have been to sop up as much oil w/ clean cotton cloth & q tips, then change needle, rethread , and sew on scraps until oil clears up. He wouldn't have hurt it, unless there's computorized parts near where it was oiled.
