    FLDonna got a reaction from dbams in Bobbin thread not being pulled up   
    Thanks for feedback, Patty Butcher,  my APQS rep, called me, sent photos back and forth, showing my needle at its lowest point in the bobbin area. She sent me HER photo and there is no way my needle is down that far (no wonder it's not picking  up the bobbin thread!).  I am watching the timing video this weekend, as we both feel that when the ruler jumped (didn't damage needle or ruler) it may have hit needle screw and may have pushed the needle bar up a bit.  So I am going to hopefully get it fixed before I go off to my Retreat on Monday.    Thanks everyone for suggestions, and Patty is an awesome dealer--I'll post when it is fixed (I hate rulers--I'm just gonna stick to my INTELLIQUILTER! )

    FLDonna reacted to Pat C in Bobbin Thread hard to pull   
    Hi Gail, I had a similar problem and I was having a hard time figuring it out.  The bobbin tension was right on when doing the drop test but when I put it in my machine the bobbin thread would pull quite hard.  I finally realized I had the "fingers" on the bobbin spring bent too far out. Once I bent them down a little bit the problem was solved!
    Hope you get it figured out!

    FLDonna reacted to rineps in Glide Thread - Question - Has this happened to you?   
    Hi Friends,
     
    I typically use Glide Thread because I love it so!  I have many large spools in all sorts of colors.  I changed the thread today to a small spool of Glide without adjusting the tension - I just did my typical tie off and pulled the thread through.  The tension on this smaller spool of glide was so ridiculously tight almost to the point where I thought it would break.  I changed back to the white, did not adjust the tension again (was experimenting) did the tie off and the thread and tension was fine.  Could Millie not like small spools?? (lol)
     
    Has anyone had issues with the smaller spools of glide and tension issues?
     
    Just curious as I thought this was so strange.
     
    Thanks Friends,
    Warm Regards,
    Patrice
     
    p.s.  Happy Thanksgiving Everyone - I hope you all have a blessed day with family and friends.
