I am making a fleece pullover for my dgs – size 3. It is Malden Mills 200 weight. In thinking about putting in the sport zipper, I decided to try and use my Perle Crown Rayon thread in a variegated primary colors for the zipper. I thought I would be fun and different to cut the fleece- leaving the edge unfinished and just top stitch the sport zipper in place.
Problem: I was able to thread the machine and needle with the thicker thread. I used a typical poly thread for the bobbin in a solid color.
When I put my foot on the pedal it takes one stitch and then stops. The thread immediately is caught and it takes me a few minutes to dislodge it.
Question: Has anyone used Perle Crown Rayon in the needle? If yes, what did you use in the bobbin? Were there any adjustments you needed to make to use it?
