Needle up and Needle down do not match the light up and light down

Recommended Posts

Hi There, I have a Millie with Quiltpath. bought it last year.  I was doing ruler work with the correct  foot hopper foot and table with ruler provided. Lots of stops and starts. Before that lots of free-motion on several projects.

When I would  stop stitching. The needle stayed down. Pushed the up needle and noticed the light was orange not green. the thread would get stuck on the bobbin and  will not pull up. using the fly wheel I was able to release the bobbin thread.  It would work sometimes then back to  the same problem. I cleaned the bobbin and made sure that there wasn't any thread or lint. decreased and then oiled it and  still same problem, The stitch length and tension are great.. just the needle up and down position out of sync.

Have you tried adjusting the number 8 screw?  Check your manual for the location.  I don't have Quilt Path so I don't know if that would have any effect on the needle up and down.  Usually it just take a little adjustment now and then to the screw.
