    I used some VERY stiff ticking. I had first purchased some ticking, but it was the type you put on pillows. Had the very same problems as you did. Too stretchy. It twisted and turned on the roller. I tossed that out, as it would NEVER work.

    Back to the fabric store - I purchased this VERY stiff ticking, which works lovely. I sewed a very long zip to it and attached the leader to the roller with self adhesive velcro. Works well.

    I bought mine here. http://www.longarmplus.com/Leaders.html
    $75.00 for 1 10" 16" & 25" all with the velcro attached and the velcro for the rollers. When I priced it out and how careful you have to be that they are exact, I felt this was a great buy. If they are off it will throe your quilt off. I have gone to the zippers and now life is a breeze.

    You can call Handi Quilter or check with a local rep. They do have their own leaders, new canvas and marked. Very nice!!

    My leaders are attached with velcro also. Sticky part on bars and other on leaders. Works great! Easy to attach and take off.
