    I have an Avante quilter, which I adore. But I am mentally challenged when it comes to loading a quilt - literally - I have some brain damage from a tumor several years ago that affect my ability to understand directions - such as which way to load and which way to roll the rollers. It is really a pain! So the question is - SOMEWHERE I have seen a video on loading a quilt onto an HQ frame. But now I can't find it. I don't remember if it was on youtube, and I can't seem to find it on the DVD that came with my machine.... Anybody have any guidance?

    Jerri, that video was awesome. I have always wanted to see how a longarm is used. That was amazing. Gives you great respect for your quilter when your quilt goes to them and comes back to you looking heavenly.
    Marje, I hope the video helped.

    Marjeet, I too am affect, I had chemo and it has given me chemo brain. I may or may not remember how to do it from one day to the next. So I understand, I am so elated that everyone is so helpful. I place this in my favorite list.
