Welcome to the Quilting Board!
What gets me is that every other machine we have, Singers, Kenmores, Dressmasters, modern and old, etc will sew fleece just fine with sharp needles and regular presser feet.
Yes this one is being obnoxious.
By will not sew I'm saying that when the needle goes down it takes the thread with it, and when it comes back up it the thread does not make a bow or what ever you call it for the hook to catch. It will do this with all other fabrics though, just not fleece.
I check the manual this morning and I did have the bobbin in backwards. Once in correctly it made no difference.
So I'll try a different thread next.
My wife said that since fleece wasn't invented till after this machine was made that it just might not sew it period. Not sure I agree with her, but I won't argue.
NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.Success is not final. Failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that counts. Winston Churchill
Miriam, I'm not much for the White sewing machines, but I'd be on that one like white on rice....just for the cabinet!
We leave tomorrow after work to head out for a couple of days of camping! Tuesday, we have our "Annual Dinner Party at the Lake"...so far we have 16 guests coming for dinner, which will be:
stuffed porkchop with an orange glaze
bacon wrapped asparagus
salad, bread rolls
triple berry cobbler with homemade ice cream.
All cooked in cast iron dutch ovens at the camp site. We always have a good time at these parties, and everyone is usually surprised to see what can be done with the cast iron and charcoal!
And yes! I'm taking my handcrank Singer 28K!!

That Singer 12 with the MOP was supposed to be mine...when can I expect you to send it?
Did you get my email about Anamarie's cabinet?
