yankiequilter Posted October 30, 2014 Report Share Posted October 30, 2014 I am quilting batik on a batik backing that has been washed. I cannot get beyond test stitching with Superior Monopoly and a muslin scrap on the side. I have changed needles to a new 3.5, then 4.0, then tweaked the angle of the needle, loosened the quilt sandwich, changed thread spools, adjusted the top tension, changed bobbins, and cannot get more than 3" of stitching without the thread breaking. I have been at it for over an hour and do not know what to try next. The thread rolls off of the spool smoothly and is on the APQS spool mount on top of Millie, threaded through two holes in the first guide and two in the second. Does anyone have ideas what to try next? I always use Monopoly and have never had this much trouble, Bobbin is Filtec Magna Glide Delight. Up until now the tension and performance has been perfect with the bobbin and Glide in the top. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
