  1. Hi Jim, Currently, I am using So fine on top and Bottom Line in the bobbin. However, it has happened with all combinations I've tried. How would I know if the black bobbin basket finger is adjusted properly? I'm willing to try anything at this point. It happens about 10+ times/quilt.
  2. I have been having this problem on and off since getting my new Lucey in January. I'm quilting along fine...then I feel some increased tension...some weird sounding stitches...and then it goes on fine. But if I look at the back of the quilt where I heard the noise, there is a bird's nest of the top thread. Here's an odd aside...sometimes, if I inspect the front stitches where it happened I notice that the top thread broke, so I miss a stitch or two, but it still kept sewing after that. Weird huh? I have the batting in the eye above my cone. I have bent the bobbin case springs up. I tried a bobbin genie. My check spring is moving between 9:30 and 11 o'clock. I'm not sure what else to try. It happens more often when I'm moving slowly like when I'm doing ruler work or micro quilting.
  3. Thanks for the suggestion Nigel. I found that if I hand wrapped it around the bobbin core a few times, then it worked.
  4. Today I tried for the first time to wind Bottom line on my turbo bobbin winder. The thread just kept breaking before it catches. I backed the tension off as much as I could but it still just breaks. Any suggestions? Thanks!
  5. ok...so I'm a little embarrassed. I had missed the take up eye on my thread path. Easy peasy fix and I'm up and running. Thanks!
  6. I was using my Lucey this morning. Everything was fine. I oiled my bobbin case and put in a new bobbin. Ever since then, anytime I try to start a new stitching line, the thread just keeps knotting up and the machine won't sew. Checked the thread path. Tried another bobbin. No threads caught in bobbin case. Not sure what to do next?
