    Panto's are done from the rear of the machine. the panto is laid on the table and you run the laser light on that from the back.

    I have seen a way to do this, but I can't remember where. I have searched and searched and can't find it, so maybe it was a flop and was removed from the website where I saw it. I know some of the short arm machine frames have a shelf and use the light from the front. Oh well, I tried.

    the panto from the front is not a long sheet. it is a smaller paper that repeats and you have to keep moving it along as you quilt. the quilter that i saw doing it could move the laser light to either side of the machine so the paper could be put on either side. the paper laid right on the quilt.

    QuiltnNan is correct. I belong to a yahoo group tinlizzie longarm and we have ladies on there who do pantographs from the front....

    Deloa Jones sells a table to use the laser from the front of your computer. I was thinking of having my husband see what he could do about building me one. I'd like to use my laser to do small pantos from the front too. It would be great for baby quilts that don't take up the entire frame for the quilt.

    Wow! I've never heard of this, but it sure sounds like a good idea.
