Will this be offered in the future? 1 Permalink Jared Medley January 25, 2018 21:26 There is a Sweet Sixteen Boot Camp offered at HQ Academy. https://handiquilter.me/academy/ 0 Permalink Michael Elinski February 08, 2018 21:31 Hello, How is one supposed to keep the quilted quilt rolled up square and neatly on the small 5-foot frame with the Simply Sixteen? How did HQ envision that the Quilter would use this simplified two bar system? I’ve found the experience to be frustrating? Would leaders help? Also, my Groovy Boards tend to shift as I use the stylus to stitch out a design. How do you suggest stabilizing the Groovy Boards? Now, I’m using books, sturdy catalogues, and wood blocks. There must be a better way. The videos I’ve watched by your educators show using a few strips of painters tape. That system doesn’t hold them still. Please guide me with this problem. Additionally, the tip on the stylus for the Groovy Board is not sturdy. Mine cracked off after 5 hours of quilting. I wonder why you would not use a metal stylus. I would greatly appreciate any assistance with these issues with my Simply Sixteen. So far, i am disappointed. Tension is the least of my problems. I have issues with craftsmanship and design of the accessories to the machine. Thank you for your help, Michael 0 Permalink Jared Medley February 21, 2018 00:05 Mike, I have converted this comment into a support request and our Technical Solutions team will be in touch shortly. Thanks! 0 Permalink debbie frio February 24, 2018 16:54 Hi Michael, I use duct tape to attach my groovy boards and it works well. I noticed mine were slipping at first and turned one over and noticed that there were extra rings taped to the back and they were causing slippage due to the fact that they raised the board enough that the friction stuff on the back wasn't connecting with the table. I hope this helps in the meantime. :-) 0 Permalink Please sign in to leave a comment.
