Viking Designer SE problem/question
Don’t get me wrong, this is a fabulous machine in so many ways. One of the reasons I (or actually my sweet hubby) dished out the big bucks is the beautiful even stitch this machine has. Lately though I can’t seem to get an even, balanced stitch while piecing fabrics for quilting.
I’ve taken it in for servicing. It comes back and the stitch is uneven and tension is spotty, and the bobbin thread cutter isn’t cutting. The service guy says it’s the thread I’m using….so I switched to Gutermanns thread. It’s doing the same thing. Took it back to the shop and he sews on it and it’s perfect. Come back home and ….well….you get the point. I’ve come to the conclusion I must be doing something wrong. I’ve been sewing since I was a child (I’m 56 now) and I haven’t considered myself a beginning sewer in decades! But, I must admit I’m feeling a bit helpless with this.
Does anyone have any suggestions or do I need to go back to the repair guy with my quilting strips and machine in my grubby little paws and insist he sit down with me and show me what I’m missing?
