    I have the basic model with a box that added the stitch regulater. I am just looking for other people who have that model and some tips. Mine was a store model and I have had it for 4 years. I have trouble with the tension. As recommended, I only use King Tut on the top and Bottom Line in the bottom. I am new to the group and am so happy I found this site.

    Welcome from MI!
    This is the post that really helped me a lot with the tension. I love my tin Lizzie. She is very un fussy about thread, and easy to use.

    The information on tension is great. I recently upgraded to the Tin Lizzie 18DS and love it. My 10 yr granddaughter practiced today so she can quilt her quilt top in the next few days.

    Welcome from WV. I can only dream of a Tin Lizzy 18 or Sweet Sixteen. Hope your problems get solved quickly and you can be off and running with that great machine.

    I have found my TIn Lizzie 18LS to NOT be fussy about thread. I have only found one brand of thread that it didn't like and it often broke. I regularly use Isacord 40 wt. polyestor, Coats and Clark 40 wt. cotton, Star 40 wt. cotton, Signature Pixelles 40 wt cotton, Coats and Clarks polyestor, and Connecting Threads 50 wt. cotton. These threads all work fine in my Tin Lizzie 18LS.
