I am taking a crafty class and she has shown us how to make stencils on paper by sewing the design without thread in your machine. I love this idea but my machine does not. It will stop every few stitches without thread in it. I have tried leaving the bobbin in, taking the bobbin out, leaving the upper thread in down just to the needle and tying it off on the needle screw. That one worked for awhile till the machine caught on to me and now doesn't work. I have tried leaving the upper thread out as well. As much as I paid for this thing you would think there is a way to turn the sensors off.
I also have an Elna and it does the same thing..can anyone help??
