Sue, there is this very large, active group, if you like fb. Some members are also technicians...it's a closed group, so you must ask to join.

Hi Riana, unfortunately we started but then it went wrong. I'll have a look at the link, much appreciated for your time

Sue,  had it been working for you before? If so, perhaps you just need a new momentary switch on the handle... often an item that can be found at Radio Shack or similar store.If not,perhaps  you can put a meter at the motor & check to see if the power is reaching it from the " on" switch of the machine itself.l sent you a link on your page for an online store that sells that machine model. Perhaps they can sell you a manual.

No there isn't any sensors on the frame tracks, the control switches are all done through the machine head itself.

Welcome to the grou, Anna, and Sue.

Sue's mentioned she has a Consew 17" with a problem. Her stop/ start button's not functioning. Sue, is there a regulator ( with sensors on the frame tracks) on your machine? I know for the Bailey ,there's different handles ( and therefor buttons) for the models that have a stitch regulator added to the ones for regular " manual" drive.

I became member of Craftsy unlimited and really enjoy watching their quilting videos. Well worth it. Right now I am watching Christina Cameli videos. I had developed similar techniques over time and it is fun to see a instructor showing techniques I like. It inspires me.

This is my new- to- me latest aquisition...a 13" Bailey! It came with a regulator, which l've transplanted onto her big brother, my 15" Bailey. This one will come home with me for use on my smaller frame. The larger one will remain here in Fla. for on the larger frame ( l'll hook up the encoders next fall). No more hauling my machine back & forth!

 Isolettes have to be all black on the back ( protecting immature eyes from bright NICU lighting) , sometimes when l have a lot of lightcream on top, it can be a challenge. So l decided to use black on the top & bottom border for my fmq with directional changes ( those can cause " pokies), and went with smoothe flowinb lines using cream thread on the nearly white parts.

Learning to get more comfortable with rulers, especially easier with my new clear ruler foot from AccentsbyDesign.com. l still go back to the metal one tgat hops for quilts with intersecting seams , however.

Oh wow, Kyra, you must be excited! I'd be on pins & needles until it 's arrival. Innova's one of the quietest machnes on the market. 

As to navigating his site., an excellent artical by Rogue can be found by selecting the " forums" button along the top bar of page...then look for discussion " Navgating this Site". I'm sure it'll help.
