    Hi and welcome Mrs Becky. I am still very new at FMQ and this was still happening to me just a few weeks ago. There are two possibilities, or a combination of both. As already indicated it is probably a tension problem. Here is the best source I knew to tell you how to adjust your tension https://www...

  • Re: Welcome to FMG group

    Today, for the first time, I actually had fun FMQ. I didn't break thread once. Everything was free form, almost no travel stitching. I will keep practicing and learning new designs to see which ones I enjoy. Tomorrow, my first try at pebbles.

  • What I'm working on

    Tami and Marie, Great job! I am sooo jealous. When I packed to come to Lawrence, I didn't pack anything to practice on and haven't been able to go to the store to get anything, bother! : ) I hope to correct that this weekend! Melody
