I was about to start a new machine applique project. Since I haven't done that in a little while, I thought I'd practice on a small shape. Went about an inch and the needle did not want to advance. It made a lump in one place. I took off the freezer paper and used the other side. Same problem. Then the thread broke. Re-threaded. And just to be sure, re-threaded the bobbin as well. Then the needle broke. Put in new needle. It still does not want to advance properly. The tension is the same as it has always been, the thread is the same brand I always use. I don't get it.
Guess I will cut some fabric for the French Braid I am planning. I think my machine has a headache.
