    I bought it used so I'm wondering since it is basically all plastic if it is just worn out? its almost like this one..

    if the foot has some rough spot where the thread is rubbing, it could cause that.

    I've had problems like that, too... quilting for hours and then all of a sudden, nothing is working right.

    I use topstitch needles when I have cranky thread. The hole is bigger in those.

I just don't see why it did one square perfectly and is now balking. Maybe Sue is just being contrary. Whatever i am NOT going to frustrate myself endlessly. If I have to I will pull my other machine out and quilt it on that. Meantime I will piece blocks.
    Not sure why you would think I'm being contrary... I am thinking out loud, I am not sure what the dogs do on the machine when you are FMQ. My feed dogs on my DSM are worn and had to be adjusted this past week, so all problems go to the dogs for me. LOL
    Best of Luck,
    sue

    Lol! I hope you find this as amusing as me......I wasn't talking about you! Its a Sunbonnet sue quilt! Sorry I didn't pay any attention to names when I made that post.
