Help with Machine Quilting stitch?
I am trying to replicate the look of hand quilting with my machine, using invisible thread in the top and my regular thread in the bobbin, but I keep ending up with a rat’s nest completely trapping my fabric to the throatplate. (I have to cut it free with a scalpel!!) What am I doing wrong? Does anyone have a better way to accomplish this look?
My guess would be that there is something wrong with your thread tension. Try tightening the needle-thread tension. Do you have any left-over scraps you could practice with till you get it right?
Hope this helps,
I had recently bought a Viking and ran into the same problem. When I phoned my salesperson, she said, "I bet you a thousand dollars the problem is in the way the machine is threaded."
She was right. I don't know what you call the piece, but I re-threaded the machine and, sure enough, it sewed beautifully thereafter.
Hope this helps...............
I sent you a response under your other request under "quilting".
