    sewjunkee

    I just joined the message board and I am excited to learn and read all things posted. I recently bought a new Juki QVP and am learning as I go. I do have a question, I am having trouble with fraying of the thread at the needle and also skipped stitches. I am currently sewing the Signature thread and it also frays. Any ideas, or maybe another kind of thread?? Thanks so much!!

    Welcome from Ontario, Canada. You could go to the Suerior Thread site and see if you have the right needle/ thread combination.

    Welcome from OHIO! I agree, it sounds like it could be a needle problem, either the wrong size or an old needle. There's lots of good info here: www.superiorthreads.com
    Being a great quilter is 5% talent and 95% pushing yourself away from the internet!
