    I have a Quilters cruise on a GrandQuilter and Inspira frame. The wheels on the cruise seem to be rolling along the track ok yet it doesn't seem to regulate properly when I move left to right. Its ok moving forward and back. Any ideas? Is there an adjustment I can make. Could it be a connection issue?

    Hello, and welcome from Idaho!
    I don't know about adjustments, but I am sure someone will have answers.

    Yes. I fought with mine for 2 weeks before finally calling Grace- and they solved the problem in a 3 minute phone call! Doh!

    (I have a Juki and a Grace GMQ frame- so may NOT be the same answer for you.)

    The issue with mine was that one of the sensors was tilted too far down, too close to the rail. (on mine, the sensor wheel touches the carriage wheel, not the rail) She told me to lift it up. I may not be explaining it accurately, but I kept thinking that the sensors had to be low, and it was the opposite.

    If this doesn't solve it, because it's not clear- call Grace Company. They are amazing and once they explain it, you will have no more trouble.

    Happy New Year

    Not quite clear on your set up, but I moved the sensor wheel a little more centered on the track it rolls on. Weird that it rolls fine to the right and then sticks rolling left, so I cleaned it with alcohol and a Q-tip and all seems fine. I think I'll call anyway as I don't know if alcohol cleaning is recommended and if there is more that I should do.
