I need urgent help from you guys!
Just when I was getting up the guts to do some stipple quilting on my machine, the bobbin plays up!!
I did a practice piece which was fine, then when I changed my thread colour for both top and bottom, the bobbin thread jams up with multiple threads at the back! Where did they all come from? I take my practice piece out and watch as I 'pretend' to sew (trying to trick the machine!) and all looks fine; put material back in, and uuurrrrggggg!
Edit: Sorry, I just changed the bobbin to a different colour and the problem seems to be the top thread - it is putting double the thread through, if that makes sense.
Edit again: Okay it is driving me nuts - changed threads, rethreaded machine several times, changed embroidery foot back to normal and so normal sewing is working fine! Okay, changed sewing foot again, took off feed dog cover, put back on feed dog cover, Nothing is working!!!!!
Once more! Thanks heaps Kellie for offering suggestions and assistance - you're such a pal! the darn thing went okay for one stint of sewing, then it happened again and I went through all of my 'normal' steps for sewing and you know what? It was as simple as not putting the 'foot' down! Using this darning foot totally bamboozled me as what the normal position was and I had continually tried to sew with it UP!! Just a little red-faced for all the fuss I made!!
