How to adjust the Tension on a Vintage Long Bobbin Sewing Machine - 1934 Singer 128K Indian Star
I have a baby lock crafters choice machine and recently started free motion quilting but for some reason I am having a heck if a time getting things to work right on this one. I have used other machines to do the same thing but am having major issues with the baby lock. I have the right darning foot, but I am a little iffy on things suck as tension and feed dogs as every machine is different. So if there is anyone who free quilts on a baby lock any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a bunch!

What am I doing wrong???

It always get lots of people asking for the recipe. I lightly spray the Bundt pan with Pam, then dust lightly with flour before putting the batter in.
