    Rosie99,

    The 15-88 has reverse lever and didn't come in the Tiffany decals.This is probably a 15-30.

    There has been plenty of laughter here this morning, and I have a scraggy pair of legs that are feeling very flattered. There was a ladder in the right leg of my tights which was pulled round out of sight of the camera. Perhaps we should have left it in view for the natural look.

    Vintagemotif - the ankle boots are made by Rieker, German, so in keeping with the machine. They make shoes for comfort, so most of their stuff is pretty frumpy - but these boots, soft black leather... I tried them on and that was it!

    Monroe - I have stuck a couple of notes on the video about reverse. I hope it makes it clearer.

    Very well done. I was expecting a short skirt though.

You've done it so you know the drill. I wouldn't fool with it until you try everything else. At least you know what it isn't so far. A burr or a gob of dried on oil could keep the thread from flowing through the tension - you can run a piece of string through the tension disks and see if it snags. Maybe do a clean up on the disks for good measure. Maybe look at the thread as it goes through the tension and see if it looks like it is advancing evenly.
    Miriam, I do know the drill! Yes, I tried everything I could think of short of removing the tension and the bobbin assembly/hook race. I tried several different needles in case one was bent - even went between universal and sharps - tried re-threading both bobbin and thread path, tried changing bobbins, changing bobbin cases, played and played with both tensions - upper and lower. It just seems like there is a hickup in the system. I can actually see when it will skip as the thread has extra play like it is going to skip; and, I can actually hear it. The skipping is not consistent. The machine will sew perfect for a while - then skip a stitch. It is so frustrating. If this were my machine, I'd take the tension off and check that first! I have tried running a thread through the tension disks, even put in some oil to loosen things up - it seems like everything is clear. I took the needle plate off and cleaned everything using a flashlight in case there were a thread caught in there somewhere - no burrs there either. I even changed the foot to make sure there were no issues there. As you know, I have 5 FW's so I know how to care for them properly, but this one - I am now almost convinced has a timing issue, which is Cathy's thing not mine! I fixed the timing on my 319w, but I won't attempt that with someone else's machine.

    Cathy what do you say about the skipped stitches? Is there a place the FW's thread can catch once in a while like the position finger on the 319w? I have seen you spread things apart in weird ways at times when you are fixing a thread catch problem!
