So I am the proud new owner of a used long arm with the Grace Pinnacle frame. I admit to being totally ignorant about such things...so I need advice about leaders, loading quilt on leaders and more. I have read about using leaders. Was going to buy Grace pre-made ones, but Jeesh they are expensive and I read complaints about Print not straight. I also don't know how to load and read about using Velcro, basting, Red Snappers and others. So I need your opinions:
what do you use and why...why do you like your method, why would you NOT use another method, etc. now I understand that everyone will have their own preferences, so please don't respond with that comment. What I am looking for is trends in responses so I can decide best way to proceed. Should I make my own leaders or buy them? If I make, are there good directions out there? What are "uh ohs" I should be aware of? Give me all you've got, lol!
Thanks in advance!
