    Thanks. I have tried adjusting that and I'm not getting anywhere. I did put regular thread in the bobbin instead of bobbin thread and it is stitching out great. I guess that I'm going to have to drive all the way back up to the city to have them look at it. It makes me mad that this will be the third trip of an hour away for this machine. First one was to buy it. Second was because they forgot to give me the accessory kit and now to take it back for them to look at. I really hope that I don't have a lemon.

    Ditto on AnntheGran, they have thousands of patterns that sew out beautifully!

    Congrats on your new machine, trust me you're going to love that bigger hoop!

    CCbear: I just found this thread and am intrigued. Did the sewing machine place fix your machine. I ran into a Black and Gold Anniversary Brother at the sew and vac store recently and I thought I had died and gone to heaven. I really wanted it (it was used but not abused and had all the Disney stuff, lots of added programs and worked like a dream) but they really wanted too much for it and I would have had to buy all the hoops to go with it so I left it at the store. My sister goes by the store now and then and said it's gone so my "Mr. Black" must have found a new mamma. I have a New Home 8000 with embroidery feature that I love but can't get the computer cards for it. I did buy some from someone on this board but I haven't gotten them yet. Am anxious to get them and get busy. I have several I bought with my machine but have used them alot and really do want new toys to play with. :lol: As soon as I get the new computer cards I'll be holed up in my sewing room til winter!

    Yes they did fix my old machine. So now I have two. I really love them. I still use both of them. I don't know much about the New Home 8000 but can you use designs that you download from the internet? If so there are tons of free designs out there that you can download for free.

    Hi CCbear: I went to SewForum like someone suggested and signed up and was sent a bunch of files in a ZIP file but I can't open them. My computer tells me I need to contact the web and buy the program or something. One of the patterns was the casserole carrier motifs. Bummer!

    If you have XP as your operating system on your computer you should just be able to right click on them and unzip them.

    CCbear: I have XP operating system but right click, left click all I get is hyroglyphics. Don't know what I'm doing wrong but will ask someone as soon as someone who knows computers comes by. Thanks for trying to help me.
