1. Can A Quilter’s Eye be attached to any quilting machine?
Yes, we have installed them on many brands of quilting machines. Most installations are very easy and take only minutes. Some installations may not be as straightforward as others. If you run into difficulty while installing A Quilter’s Eye, please contact our technical support and we will “walk you through it”.
2. If I mount the monitor screen on the front of my machine, how do I see it when I occasionally do pantographs from the back?
You can loosen the screw on the monitor base and rotate the screen towards the back.
3. I have an extended base plate on my machine. Does that present a problem?
Base plates are now available from some manufacturers (Nolting and others to follow) with a “cut out” section which allows for normal viewing with A Quilter’s Eye. If your base plate doesn’t have a cut out section, please contact us.
4. I have an IntelliQuilter on my machine. Am I able to add A Quilter’s Eye?
Yes, our tall extended bracket can clamp behind the IntelliQuilter on the longarm itself and our monitor can then be positioned to the left side.
5. What if there is no room on the top of my machine to mount the monitor screen?
All machines are different with different attachments and user preferences. We have installed monitors on the left side, top, and left arm of a machine. Click on our Photo Gallery to view examples.
