    Newbee

    We have a new Crown Jewel on a Pearl frame. So far so good. We seem to be having some trouble with thread selection and setting tensions. Any help would be appreciated. Which thread weight? What brand? Poly or cotton. I understand King Tut is good, is it? Thanks

    I forgot to introduce myself. My name is Lou and I am very new to sewing and quilting. My wife has been teaching me to sew. I have sewn and quilted only 5 quilts on the Crown Jewel. Hoping to learn some things from you.
