Hi, I have had my TL18, with a QBot attached, for a year, but haven't done a lot with it, mainly because the needle tends to stay down in the fabric while the machine moves around, causing the skipped stitches. Am surprised I haven't broken any needles yet. The seller doesn't seem to know what's causing this and sent new encoders but that hasn't fixed the problem, and I've tried new needles etc. At the moment I'm halfway through a job - a paying job- and it's started again. I seems to happen

Any help out there would be appreciated. And what do I clean it with? It runs like a dream, nice and quiet and beautiful

I watched Sharon Shamber video on using "light weight foundation" (Pelon fusible on oneside) to applique and would never have tried without it! It stays on the piece and is easy to sew through.
I'm so glad you found a way to help you! Do you know who your vendor is and if she has anything on-line?
Here's the one I use.
Has anyone used a Q snap frame to hand quilt a quilt? If there is any advice please share it with me. I have a Double Wedding Ring hand pieced and fixing to hand quilt it soon. My 17x17 is smaller than block so I am switching them for a little longer to fit ONE entire block in frame so I can hand stitch one entire block at a time.
Any advise pleas share with me. Thanks!

We are finally back from 'vacation' and my life is supposed to be getting back to normal. But ... instead, I am getting ready to hop on a plane with seven other people for a three-day trip to Disneyland! YAHOO!!!
I have a small quilting project - handwork on a wool applique wall hanging - to take with me for quiet times. I am not sure I will get anything done on it, but it will be there just in case.
I had to laugh at myself when I was getting ready - the last time I

As for accusing others of being "unforgiving," I think that's being extremely unfair. It's not as if the company "made a mistake" by selling an inferior product. On the contrary, the company is aware of the problem
