  1. After winding new bobbin I began having trouble. Needle breaks, needle thread fraying, bobbin thread breaks; threads are so fine 50 in needle and bottom line in bobbin. After tweaking tension it is sewing better but is making a popping or hitting sound when I pull the machine towards me. I've quit for the night and am worried it's going to break another needle. It is better if I slow down, but is dense quilting I'm doing. Also, I am in manual mode. I have an appointment for maintenance next week but hate to not work for six days.... Any ideas? I know I should do my own maintenance but who has
  2. I have run into a problem with my Quilt Path. I have broken a needle and when that happens, the x y position of the machine gets off from where it was originally. If I go into fix the pattern and pick the closets stitch, it isn't lined up with where the quilting really is. what I want to do is tell the system 'you are here' essentially and have it start quilting from that point. All I can figure out how to do is use the nudge arrows, but when you are off by an inch or more, that takes a really long time and isn't very accurate. Any help would be appreciated.
  3. I'm doing an e2e design on a quilt made with tiny, batik, pinwheels where all the points converge making little, rock hard mountains. I've had 2 needles break so far and worry about damaging the quilt. I'm using a size 16, titanium needle. Any ideas as to how I can soften these little mountains to avoid breaking any more needles, throwing my timing off and ruining the quilt? Help, please :-/
