    Isn't it irritating when this happens??? I think my machine is possessed... It's sewing fine then... THAT happens on the bottom! It's ok, I'll fix it... I just had to walk away from it for a moment....

    All that wasted thread.....

    I suspect your top thread wasn't between the tensions discs properly. Don't despair.

    While learning to free motion quilt, I have seen far to many of these "thread arrangements". But you are correct aside from a waste of thread, it is definetely fixable. Thank you for sharing and I hope that you have no more of this type of experience.

    Isn't it great to have a place where you can vent, and everyone understands your pain!

    A true confession here- sometimes I have to threaten my machines into behaving. If I feel extremely miffed, then I threaten them with a crow bar, otherwise, I am going to sell them to someone that does't love and care for them like I do. Then after a sip of something soothing, they improve their behavior.

    (Since I don't have a crow bar - or if we do, I have no idea where it is- they don't know it would never happen.)
