    I haven't been on here much (looking but not posting) because I've been busy with my new toy! I had a heck of a time getting the tension worked out- it came from the factory with the top tension WAY too tight and I kept thinking it was me!

    Sorry you had tension problems, I got my Sweet Sixteen in November, and not one problem with tension, in spite of useing cotton, poly cotton and rayon on top, plus either matchin thread in the bobbin, or two different specific (finer) bobbin threads.

    If I had one of those, I don't think I'd be on here much either. Congrats! May you have many years of happy quilting.

    In the picture, it looks like it is as long as a semi.
    Enjoy your new toy. Will be looking forward to some nice quilts.
