11  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Craft with a Fat Quarter Swap!! (SU CLOSED, SO 4/18/11) on: April 04, 2011 01:45:00 PM
I have one item done, and if I cut everything absolutely perfectly I should be able to get the two additional items I have planned out of the FQs.  One false move or poorly placed piece, and the whole thing goes.....  I believe this may call for paper pattern pieces to achieve optimal arrangement.   Shocked

Those crocheted eggs are utterly adorable!  I <3 them!

Sounds like your bobbin tension is too loose. On my machine (a cheap Brother) you do it by tightening a screw on the bobbin holder. Check the manual if you have one.

Thank you!!!  My manual doesn't mention bobbin tension anywhere, but I fiddled with the screw on the bobbin holder, and now it stitches perfectly.  I can sew again!!!  Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin

Incredibly frustrating, yes!  I tried a new needle, a new bobbin, cleaning and oiling everything.... finally tried loosening the bobbin tension (which required consulting the internet, because my manual doesn't even mention the possibility of bobbin tension) and that did the job! Grin

I am so frustrated.  I bought my fabric, cut out my pieces, and was all ready to get to work, but my sewing machine is being cantankerous and I can't figure out why!  Maybe my earlier claims to have come to a truce with it were a bit premature.  Can anybody think of a reason why my needle tension would be too tight (bobbin thread is coming up to the top) even when I've turned the tension down to zero?

I am having roughly the same problem.  No matter what I do, the bobbin thread is being pulled up to the top of the fabric.  I've turned the tension setting all the way down to zero, and it hasn't helped!  The first few stitches will be normal, but then the bobbin thread starts creeping up again.  I'm trying to work on a swap project, so I need to get this fixed ASAP, but I'm not sure what to do.  I'm not an experienced seamstress at all. serenityfey, how did you find the loose spring?  I don't know if that is my problem, but it seems like it's worth a try, at least!

Spent the evening working on my thank you for grimscreed. I gotta say, it's adorable. I'm gonna have a hard time giving it up!

Awwww, thanks!  I can't wait to see it.   And I hope that you LOVE your package, once it gets to you.  Smiley

A candle swap does have potential!  I'm not sure if I will have time for another swap just now (lots of crafting deadlines in my personal life are looming!), but if I do then I would be interested.

I sent packages to both of my needers today!  Now to hope that I put the correct address on each one, and that I subsequently sent the correct DC # to each of them!   Shocked
