    Hello. Looking for QZone Hoop Frame users

    I have recently purchased the QZone Hoop Frame and a Brother PQ 1500 SL. I have struggled for a few weeks and still not able to get a good quilt. I have had tension problems, which I have significantly improved but it seems after I get 2 or 3 rows quilted the tension needs adjusting. I don't know there is a problem until I take it off the frame. I started with just making the quilt sandwich from a whole piece of fabric. I have thrown away 3 learning project quilts because the stitches are poor quality--generally loops on the back. The first 2 or 3 rows are okay but then the tension seems to work itself loose with no adjustment being made in the settings. I have watched all the Youtube videos I can find. What I need is a training class. Does anyone know where or how I might get that training.

    Not sure if this is applicable - when you get the first few rows ok and then have problems, is this all in one session? Are you getting tired maybe?

    Sorry I can't help, but I wanted to say, "Hi and welcome" anyway. I'm sure that there are others here that can answer your questions.

    No I don't think that is it. The tension is the problem. It starts out ok but something seems to change. It may be the speed I am using. I tend to speed up after I get started. I have ordered a stitch regulator which is supposed to adjust the speed of the machine to match the speed I am moving the machine. Maybe? Thanks for responding.
