    I should have known better

    Yesterday I decided to do a pantograph on a baby quilt. I strayed away from my wonderful Superior thread and used some cheap thread mainly for the color, ( I will know to order the color i need next time.)Four rolls later I noticed it was skipping stitches sometimes an inch long.I decided to take it off the frame and will have to rip it all out. I will be going for my second knee replacement next week so I guess while I'm sitting in my recliner i will be ripping all those stitches. I guess it will give me something to do. I'm just sick...

    Hope your knee replacement goes well and there is no pain at all! I am due for my second one too...but stalling. You will definitely have time to unstitch...in fact we should all send you out stuff that needs done!

    oh no. A tip for on the quilting machine so you don't have to lean over to see underneath is to take a mirror on a handle to look under there. So sorry to hear that happened.
    enjoy your life...it's the only one you have!!!

    I don't use expensive threads on my domestic machine I quilt on and I have never had that happen. When you are healed do a test sandwich to make sure it doesn't happen again.
    Good luck with you knee.

    Sorry to hear about your unfortunate incident with your thread. Good luck with your knee replacement. Once the procedure is completed, you'll be so happy that you had it done.
