    Do you have the spool of thread standing upright with the thread feeding over/through an uptake lever or hook? I used to put mine in a jar behind the machine and that sometimes helped. I do not use the monofilament in the bobbin. Not sure I would trust it for the binding.

    I have had mine 9 months and same thing. I have tried to get help but all they say andimply is to badhow sad. 90 days no parts and since it took me 3 months of calling and emailing and talking to Miss Cahill of HSN they told me one year tought luck. I took it to repair and she said timing is out feet are out of line and several other things. I got the one with the table etc If you don't have a repair shop that can work on it you have to mail it or take to shop. And if it went out it will again. There is a club of 138 women and it copied some of them that are banded together to let others know. If you wnt to write me at Jeriz1@yahoo.com feel free. Sorry to let you know this but if it is under 90 days you may get help.Where did you buy it.

    I'm wondering why you chose invisible thread. I find it very uncomfortable next to my skin. Since it is causing a problem after you've stitched a short distance, I'm thinking you may be having a problem with the foot catching on something and not wanting to move forward. My walking foot does this sometimes right after I pass a bulky seam the "hump" catches on the body of the foot and you have to ease it forward to continue.

    I've never heard of anyone using invisible thread for binding. Did someone advise you to use it? I think I would gently rip out the stitches and start over using thread for the binding.
