    I'm going to have to use the even feed foot for any quilting I do today--yes. No stippling though.. so I can't finish the one I started. GRRRRRR.

    I FIGURED IT OUT!!! It's the feed dog cover! The bobbin is sticking to a small ding put there from when the needle must have broke--there's a hole though it--I thought it came that way it looks so even--but I just tried it with it off and NO LOOPS!!

    I can stipple without covering the dogs.

    Thank you for your support!!

    WHEW!

    Karla, when I've had that problem it was because of the way the quilt was moving (or not moving) when I was free-motioning. It didn't do the same thing on a scrap because the scrap was moving without a problem, but when I put the quilt on it would sometimes hang because of the weight or getting caught a bit on the corner of my quilting table. It didn't seem to take much drag to mess things up. It got better when I watched the drag and stopped trying to sew backwards to catch spots I missed :-)

    Edited to add: Just saw your post about the burr - if you cut an emery board in half or slightly thinner than half, you can usually file out those burrs. Glad to know you found out what it was!

    according to the guy that fixes my machine (often) if you can see the problem on top then the problem is on the bottom. if you can see the problem on the bottom then the problem is on the top. so far he's right every time. also, after you have a problem bad enough to break a needle you shoud always check the plate and the bobbin case. they always get banged around.
