Letter From The Top
fireworks_panorama.jpg Hi Friends,
It's that wonderful time of year that most of us absolutely love and maybe even claim we live for - Summer.
Where are you hoping to go and what are you wanting to do this summer?
Each one of us has lots of good ideas. I would like to suggest a couple nice destinations. How about a day or two in Nashville, Tennessee, or St. Joseph, Michigan?  Both destinations offer a load of recreational opportunities for visitors like you and it would be an ideal opportunity to visit one of our stores to test drive an Innova, stock up on longarm quilting supplies, or take a class.
We can't wait to greet you.  We like to entertain good company so you can bet we'll always have something cold and refreshing to offer you before you leave to enjoy well.... more summer.
I hope each of you find the time this summer to connect with those you love and to venture into the places that bring you the most joy.
Best regards,
Jeff Benedict

Hydraulic Lifts versus Electric Lifts

Bonus Tip:
If you have the new Innova Bobbin Case and are wondering the correct way to thread it, here is the last word from Michael: Test the bobbin tension as usual(See our Inserting the Bobbin Tutorial). Then continue to bring the thread up as usual and then bring it to the front of the case through the slot.
