I'm trying to make my first quilt ever. I'm looking at buying a new machine but thought I'd be able to at least start learning on my Singer. The tension was all wonky and I finally got it set right and starting sewing blocks. Then the bobbin ran out of thread so I rewound it and then the tension was off again. I didn't touch any of the tension settings. The part of the machine that holds the bobbin acts like it is loose and while it is supposed to be an easy drop in bobbin, I am having a great deal of trouble getting the bobbin in and out. It is like it is catching on something.
Argh, maybe I should just go pick up a new machine and see how far I can throw this one!
