Use this these zippered fabric tabs to load quilts "The MK Way".

The intent with these zip off/zip on fabric tabs is to attach your backing fabric without having to pin or remove the entire leader from your frame.


Take just the zipper with fabric tab off, attaching backing, zip it back on.


Use these in combination with the leaders grips to make your loading process go quickly and smoothly. Watch Melissa's YouTube Video "Load Quilts the MK Way (Updated 02/2023)" to see the full explanation of how Melissa has adapted both these products in her studio. The updated loading video includes instruction on installing the zippers.

    Zippers with fabric ties

    Posted by Edwin Schoonover on Jun 19th 2023

    We installed the zippers, red snappers and magnets the day they arrived. The videos by MK were easy to follow and made installation easy. We have used them on a few quilts already and have found them to increase the ease of loading quilts and speed the process as well. We recommend these products as well as the videos by MK University. Even though we have been doing longarm quilting for ten years, we continue to learn things which make us more efficient.
