    I just bought one from a pawn shop in St Paul. Was looking for a machine that has 3-step zigzag for mending so I can volunteer with homeless outreach--needed a general purpose machine that I can carry around (my 1970s Viking is too heavy). I have 7 days to return it for refund so I'm trying to learn it, fast. Spent all Sunday messing about.

    Do you like your machine, JoTheSewer2? Have you had any issues?

    I have the same machine and wondered if you had fixed your problem? If you take the plate under the presser foot off and clean with the little brush provided with the machine you should be okay.

    you should post this question over in the Main section.
    you are more likely to get useful responses there.

    I just had this problem. I have a Bernina 750. I had a rats nest and cleaned everything with new needle and fresh oil. I turned it off and on - still had error 1010. The needle would not go up and down. Solution: I took the bobbin hook out and the needle would now go up and down so I knew it had to do with how I put it in. I did not know you could put it in upsidedown and still close the bobbin door. After I put my bobbin hook right side up, it started working.

    Well, it can be done, but you will need to put a label on the back saying it must be dry cleaned (which is normal for upholstery fabric), and be sure your friend understands as well. Technically, quilts are made of cotton because it washes, dries, and wears well, and was what they had. In reality, quilts can be made of lots of things, depending on use. My first quilt was made of poly cotton, is still going strong, and still keeps my granddaughter nice and snug. I made a quilt of silk, and one of wool. I make art quilts with painted parts and sewn on bits of things. So the only rule I follow, is to clean them in a way that will not damage any of the parts, whatever they are made of. Saying that, cotton is the easiest fabric to work with and care for.
    have a great holiday season, and a wonderful new year. Welcome to quilting!
