    If any of you have a newer Baby Lock Symphony and are having problems with it, I'd like to hear from you! Also, when you take your machine in for repairs, do the technicians immediately blame everything on lesser quality thread? I've sewn for decades, have had Vikings in the recent past, and only when I bought the Baby Lock did thread quality become an issue. Let's talk!!

    I don't own a Baby Lock, but any owners of new computerized machine will be told that thread quality is a big issue. There are sensitive components and systems in these machines and junk thread will cause you problems.

    Well, my Quest Plus is totally NOT picky, but I still use high-quality, low lint thread. I do think dealers like to blame the user whenever possible. So whatever problem you are having, see if you have it with the recommended thread and needle.

    I have the espire(earlier version of symphony) and haven't had any thread problems. I do clean lint out very frequently though, but honestly it is the best machine. I love it.

    I have tge ellegante and they did warn me about one thread but I've used lots of different kinds except for the one cheap brand. I had trouble initially with mine cause I wasn't hitting all the grooves when I threaded it if that makes sense...I had a huge mess until my dealer showed me what I was doing wrong.

    Hi
    I have the Symphony, an Elegante2 and an Ellure and I have no issues with thread, and wasn't told to use a certain kind. I normally
    only use Aurifil thread for sewing and I use Sulky or Maderia for embroidering and appliqué.
    I love my Babylocks and no problems at all.

    I just bought mine and have had no problems with it. The dealer did thread it wrong when he demoed it for me but then he re-threaded and all was well. I love my new machine and I am still learning about it.
