Jane Kaman Posted January 23, 2022 Report Share Posted January 23, 2022 This has happened twice in the past month, after never happening in 3 years! Needle began skipping stitches, thread break warning, even though there was none. I have floppy handles that do not respond to tightening screws. When I need to rethread, I move them upwards to make room for my large hands. I think it is possible that both times, I accidentally hit the sew button on the handle and it took off, staying in one position, making a small hole on quilt top and large hole on quilt bottom. The reason I say "it is possible" is that it is so traumatic, that I don't know what happened. APQS Lucey new since November 2021, IQBasiq, stitching left to right on last episode, don't remember first. I am very carful inserting needle, using pin to keep it at 6:00 position with right hand, while tightening with left. Once secure, I see if there is any wiggle, and there is usually not any. The repair usually means asking client for extra fabric for repairs, hours of unstitching, replacing piece and loosing customer's confidence in my work. I also need to know how to stop it while it is in the middle of it's destruction! Thanks for any help, Jane . Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
