giving up. The thread broke 2 times on that first quilt and once on the next quilt. I was going as fast as I could go and turning corners and trying to get the thread to break. I was daring it to break. I think I figured out what the problem was. Of course, I had to push my luck and try the cheaper thread. I tried the essentials thread that is only $2 a spool for 1200 yards and it broke about 10 times on the slow speed and I could tell when it was going to break, if I went around a corner too fast. This was a big difference from yesterday, when it broke if I looked at it funny.
So, maybe I won't be sending the machine back. I'm not ready to say I've completely solved the problem. I am going to try several more quilts once my back rests, but these are the quilts I've quilted since getting the machine. Can you imagine how many I will be able to do once I get the dumb thing figured out? 9 quilts in 2 days when it doesn't work right!
I will be calling the company on Monday to have them send me a new feed dogs cover for sure at the very least and to order some thread.
