First of all, God bless my understanding husband - after watching me struggle over my sewing machine for two nights with FMQ - made sandwiches which seemed to sew fine, went back to quilt and it was nesting on the botton again in spots. I realize it just might be me, but this is my 6th free motioning quilt, and I was even getting compliments from the guild on my FMQ. I did use flannel on the back of this baby quilt, and I have never done that before with FMQ.
Yes, I changed the needle to a Superior one for top stitching 2 times.
Yes, I had it serviced within the last two months.
Yes, I threaded and re-treaded the machine.
Yes, I changed the bobbin and even took the thread off the bobbin and threw it away that thread and rewound the bobbin. Yes, I cleaned out the bobbin case.
Yes, I tried adjusting the tension, etc.
Yes, I tried that slippy mat that I bought at the Road to California for $30 some odd dollars.
This morning, upon waking DH said "maybe you just need a new sewing machine!" Any recommendations? I would like a large harp, an auto threader, and the ability to FMQ. I have an Elna 3210 and have been pretty much happy with it since 2005.
