    are you using it on a frame or on a table?

    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    sorry you are having problems. it can be very frustrating. I've got the Juki TL-2010 and have never had an issue since day one. I oil it frequently and clean out the bobbin area anytime I'm changing the bobbin or if I think it needs it sooner. Would yours need a good cleaning? Have you had it serviced? Maybe you have a bad part that needs replacing.

    I've had my 2000 since November and I love it - and never had had a problem with it at all. I'm wondering if your timing is off a little bit? I'd get it serviced/cleaned and see if that helps.
    I don't know why you'd be having such horrible problems...
    Having said that.. I had MAJOR issues with my Tin Lizzie sit down machine... and after watching and using this bobbin tension technique, it fixed my tension issues completely... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q1mRhcquZTM
    I check every single bobbin because each one winds slightly differently. I haven't had an issue since. I don't use my Juki for quilting often - just small stuff or when I need a walking foot...
