  4. Help! Washable markers didn't wash out

    I used my go to ,Ultra Clean washable Crayola markers, to mark my quilt. This time they didn't all wash out. I didn't realize it and dried the quilt.

    Hello, I am looking for some guidance. I cannot get my needle to bring the bobbin thread up to the top of quilt. It was working fine a few weeks ago. AFter about 10 tries or so I get the bobbin thread to come up but then it does not stitch. Every once in a while it will lock a stitch.
