  1. I loaded a back in the wrong direction. I did not charge. She still paid me and she was so grateful. Return customer!

    Bonnie - Bob, Generally speaking, price, location, if seller will ship, other items included, why are you selling, etc., will greatly aid with your sale. Best of luck to you. Cagey

  3. Bring a hand mirror to check underneath (flashlight on cell phone helps). You should also be able to run a fingernail along the stitching on the bottom - if your nail is catching on each stitch, there's a good chance the tension needs to be adjusted.

    Don't really know anything about "Sure Stitch", but your problem sounds like the horizontal encoder (if sure Stitch) has encoders) isn't turning properly. Check for thread wrapped around it, and make sure there is enough tension on it to make firm contact with whatever it rides on. Good luck. Jim

  5. Zoltan at Intelliquilter supports CQ now. You can contact them via internet. They are awesome to work with as I switched from CQ to IQ and they really are amazing.

    Compuquilter on APQS machine

    Some of the links on this APQS forum thread might help; https://forum.apqs.com/topic/34341-compuquilter-is-no-longer-in-business/ You might reset the computer running the program to factory settings. This may get the compuquilt program to reset also. Best of luck to you resolving your problem.

  8. It would be helpful to potential buyers if you can post photos, state the model name and year, and where you are located.

    Bobbin winder problem

    Singer didn't make different bobbins for the Featherweights. If you look closely, you'll see there is a slot cut in the bobbin holder. This slot can be made wider or narrower, by either spreading the shaft. or squeezing it. If bobbins won't go on the shaft you need to squeeze it, if they slip, you need to spread it. Good luck.

  10. When we were new we used to add a piece of fabric to the left or right of the quilt top and do a little test there. Then you can turn the edge of the quilt sandwich and see the back and adjust if needed. Also we were taught to pull on the bobbin tail every time you insert a bobbin to make sure it felt right. If you are getting lint from the thread then clean out the lint under the bobbin tension finger with the corner of a business card. Superior So Fine became our most often used thread because it runs so clean and that change alone eliminated ninety percent of our tension issues. If you haven’t seen it before I recommend watching the Thread Therapy videos with Bob Purcell. We attended one of his seminars many years ago and not once did he promote his brand over another. What you need to know is not on the label.

  13. When I had a Lenni, I used big strong binder clips to block the left-right movement of the machine. Worked very well. Just use a light hand with no sidewise pressure as you move Ms. Lucey. Blessings!

  14. Heirloom quilting......I had a real challenge with this quilt. All of the blocks were hand embroidered and were quite thick in spots. There were lots of French knots and the client wanted the words of a particular hymn in the sashings. The sashings were linen and raveled very easily, so I serged the edges (no cutting) and that kept it stable enough to quilt without further fraying. Since I do freehand work without a computer, this was a bit scary, but I finished it and the client was thrilled and tearful with the outcome. My client is the daughter of the embroiderer. This will be a wedding gift for the client's granddaughter, and was embroidered by the recipient's great-grandmother who passed away some time ago.

  15. I am also having the side-to-side issue with my stitch regulator. Thanks for the help. I will try to tighten the encoder bolt down. Hope that helps.
