    I love that frog one. I had that hanging by my desk for most of my working career. Wonder where that thing got to? :thumbup:

    Oh yeah, quilting. I'm marching right along side you. :roll:

    Same thing happens to me with this computer.
    If I don't walk away I won't have a computer - seems like this machine has the ability to turn a mild mannered Grandma into a monster.

    You did the right thing

    HEY DEBBIE - I LOVE the pelican and the frog!

    Well I checked for dust bunnies in the bobbin area and they're were not too many. Then I opened the upper part and there were quite a few. So I vacuumed.

    It continued fraying the thread - but I made it work. Not my best work - not even something to be happy with. But they're DONE and waiting for me to buy some dye catchers so I can wash them before mailing.

    Hoping it was the THREAD I used - or maybe the new needle - or maybe the combination of the thread and needle. Guess I'll never know though - cause I'm throwing both of them away when I go near the machine again!

    Thanks QUILTERS!!!!

    Bottom line is made by Superior and I buy it where I can find it the cheapest. Just Google it and check around. Be sure and take a look at the shipping fees.
