I'm with you on the tangle of threads on the back. I heard it referred to somewhere as "bobbin barf" which seems applicable.

My other pet peeve, because it's something I do myself, is deciding to change sitches from straight to zig-zag or something like that, and end up breaking the needle and upsetting my poor machine. I've done it twice already. accckkk!

The bird's nest of thread on the back bothers me too! I've threaded it so carefully and it's so pretty, and then it goes kerpluey!!!! :evil:

I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one with pet peeves!

"Thread throw up"/bobbin barf/thread nest/#%#*%(&*^)*&

That has to be number one but I am really irritated when:
I break needles
the blocks don't line up perfectly
I'm just shy of the amount of material I need for a project
I have to bump one project for another priority one and have a hard time getting back to the first one
and when I have to do real laundry before fun fabric laundry.

Sounds like central Florida. I dislike tangled masses that happen underneath. I have not had any with this machine, but I am still on my honeymoon with it.
