I can't be the only one who does things like this: spends 90 minutes and wastes miles of thread before realizing that the problem isn't the machine tension, it's that the bobbin is threaded wrong. D'oh.

You are not alone. Once I was chain piecing and did about 30 pieces before I realized the bobbin had run out, among other things.

If it makes you feel better after reading this I was like "You can thread a bobbin wrong?" I then googled it and went "Ohhh...that's why my machine does that..."
