I loaded a string quilt on Tillie (thanks Sandy) this morning and I am THRILLED with my new machine. I just did a simple panto, Chantilly Lace and I didn't have any tension issues - absolutely none - there isn't a railroad track, long stitch or loop anywhere - front or back! The picture above isn't a very good one - as soon as I get the binding on, I'll try and get a better picture of the stitch quality.
One question I do have that I hope someone can help me with - how do you get your stitches to 'sink' into the fabric? Is it thread choice, batting, tension or loading the top and/or backing more loosely?
