    Really need tension help

    Zeke, I did blow between disks with compressor. Is that what you meant or that I should take the unit off and clean?
  3. I could really use some input. I just finished a custom quilt, all was fine. I cleaned machine, changed threads and started sewing on some practice fabric and my tension was all off. I have a millie, 2010. Seams to be flat lining in different directions. I changed thread and bobbins 3 times, changed needle, checked for burrs, checked thread path, checked hopping foot height. Changed tension control unit probably last year or so. Please help. Thank you K
  4. Angela Walters is asking for prayer for her brother Nate who was in a motorcycle accident this week. Wanted to bring it here as I know there are a lot of prayer warriors among you. He is in a drug induced coma and making strides in the right direction. She is raffling off a quilt to help out God bless and Merry Christmas

    Backing with rubbery stars and dots

    Thanks ladies, I did call her and she was great about it. She will replace and bring to me. Placemats are a good idea Charlotte, I was also thinking table cloth as it is for a king and gigantic! K
  6. Hi all, has anyone quilted fabric with rubbery embellishments on the back, slippery fabric also. I was concerned about tension but as I am rolling it onto frame some of the gold pieces are falling off. I am now concerned about these pieces getting into my bobbin-hook area and if it will reek havic! Fabric from JoAnns and of course they told her it would be fine to quilt. Appreciate your input. Thanks, K

    Centering a backer

    Thanks to all who have chimed in. So far I have it loaded per Linda R's instructions. Hopefully I'll get some quilting time soon, tomorrow I hope. I'll post when it's finished and let you all know how I made out. K

    Centering a backer

    Thank you so much for all the great advice everyone......I'm Goin in! K
  10. Hey Ladies and Gents, I have a question for those who have a better grasp of how the quilt sandwich will roll than I have. I have a large quilt back with 12 inch border all around. I explained to my customer that I wouldn't be able to center it and she is OK with that. But I would like to do the best I can. I am wondering where to place top. I know there is a relationship difference in the rolling process. Don't know if I am getting my point across but hopefully someone out there can understand my gibberish. Thanks for your help. K
