Thanks so much for the help. Pictures soon.

I have tried everything I can think of. I have loosened the tension, checked the bobbin, cleaned lint. The thread comes off the tension knob really tight even when I loosen it.
Any ideas? It is interesting that nearly all of the problems with long arm machines are Tin Lizzie. I hope to finish this

cut main fabric 6 1/2 x 5 1/2, lining 7 1/2 x 5 1/2
you need two pieces of fabric, one main piece and one for the lining
sew 1/4 inch seam along both ends of the 5 1/2 sides, right sides together
turn right sides out and press so that

Well, wait, here is an idea. Cut 2 1/2 inch strips the width of the fabric, sew 5 together, cut into squares (I think that would be ten inch squares), then alternate the directions of the stripes, putting sashing between them. I did this several times and liked the results. Let me see if I can find any pictures.

Here's a great 2-fabric pattern: http://www.quilterscache.com/G/GardenMazeBlock.html
The site also has alternative ways to change up the look a bit and links to pictures of other quilts made with this pattern. Overall, a very elegant design...reminds me of stained glass! Too nice of a pattern to not share...enjoy!

5 out of 6 bicycle shops I've been into carry "Finish Line" products instead of tri-flow, and claim they're better.
Each time, I've told them I'm looking for tri-flow specifically and didn't know if the FL products are SM friendly.
I finally found one shop that carries the oil, 2oz bottle
