SUBSCRIBE: http://full.sc/LmYEYg Let me show you how I save time loading my quilt onto my longarm frame with magnets! I started using this technique about 2 years ago and have never gone back to zippers or pinning. I only load the quilt backing onto two rollers with magnets and then the batting and quilt top are floated. Meaning, I don't roll my quilt top on any roller.
When I purchased my longarm setup I got it with the zippered leaders that go taped on to the electrical conduit poles. After I discovered the magnet method I considered removing the zippered leaders but figure the tap would leave them too gummy and I didn't want to go through the hassle of cleaning them up or buying new poles so, I just left them as is and I place the magnets over all the layers of fabric- zippered leaders and quilt backing with no real problems. I show you how I do just that in this video as well.
The magnets are not only great for loading the quilt backing but for keeping a little allen wrench, seam ripper, small pair of scissors, etc. stuck on the machine for easy access while quilting.
The longarm setup I have in this video is a Voyager 17 on a Hinterberg Stretch Frame. Both items can be seen here: Voyager 17 longarm machine: http://bit.ly/KHJiAX Hinterberg Stretch Frame: http://bit.ly/LoUiAf
