my quilting machine dead bar
I'm still having troubles with the tension every time I change the bobbin. I can't figure out why. I'm trying both the prewound and the bobbins I wind myself. There has to be a trick that I'm just not getting. I will not give up. I remember when I first got my other machine, getting so frustrated for about 2 weeks and wanting to just send it back because the thread kept breaking. It's probably something so simple. When it works, it is really nice and makes such great stitches, but at the beginning of each bobbin, the tension is just terrible. I tried running the machine freehand off the edge of the quilt, but that didn't help. Ugh.
