Babylock Evolve Elastic Foot

chaco2aztec | Posted in Equipment and Supplies on

Hello –

I just purchased an elastic foot for my Babylock Evolve and am attempting to learn how to use it. The documentation says to use a 4 thread overlock stitch. My problem is the thread for overlock needle 1 keeps skipping and breaking.

Has anyone successfully used this foot and, if so, do you have any ideas to what my problem may be?

Thanks,

Leslie

    I have one and have never tried to use it.  Is it possible that the thread itself is the problem.  Can you try substituting a diffferent spool to see if that works?  Have you removed the thread completely and rethreaded it?  Sometimes just doing that can  fix the problem .  This is the kind of problem that needs a tension control that this brand doesn't have.
