    I have an employee who used to work in the computer industry, and his term for this is:

    PEBCAM

    Problem Exists Between Chair And Machine.

    I have been the problem on plenty of occasions. :roll:

    Yes, you can do fancy stitiching on your machine. Start talking with Melissa, mgshaw. She's just ahead of you in the learning process.

    As a beginging quilter I was not running the machine at a steady speed and the stopping and starting and stuttering was breaking the thread. I have now spent untold hours practicing and guess what? NO THREAD BREAKS because I am now able to just let'er rip and stop worrying.

    I am no where near being able to do any specific designs but am proud of finally gotten this far.

    NEW QUESTION: Is it possible to do fancy designs using just my sewing machine or does one need a long arm? (which is way out of reach on my budget :mrgreen: )
    did you write the quote ? Great one !

    Good for you. My dad would say it was a problem with a nut behind the controls. It took me a long time go realize he was talking about me, guess I'm kind of slow sometimes.
