    Thanks again to Ramona & Thea for the advice & link to bobbin video. I ripped out the rest of the old stitches from my sample t-shirt "quilt" today & loaded it back on the frame. I then loaded a different bobbin, loosened the bobbin tension, rethreaded the top thread & tightened that tension (it was pretty loose) and it worked

    Thea thanks for the photos. Looks like you all had fun & so much more space to sew in! Great job, Judy, in finding the spot. Block Party Studios posted photos on their facebook page - you are celebrities!

    Ramona, Superior Threads recommends Bottom Line in the bobbin when using their monofilament so that is what I tried. I had already picked another thread to blend with the backing but found a bottom line that matches as well. There could be any number of issues here so I think I really need to play around til I get it to work or run out of thread! LOL

    Sorry for the delayed response, Thea. Yes, I watched the video - it had some info I had not heard about the bobbins before. I think I may have a bad bobbin - will have to try a different one & loosen bobbin tension, too. One day I'm not working will have to be dedicated to figuring this one out!

    Have any of you ever used monofilament thread in a long arm? I have the MonoPoly from Superior Threads and want to use it on a t-shirt quilt. I made a sampler from leftover t-shirts and have followed the advice on Superior Thread's site (loosen tension, go slower, etc.), but am getting eyelashes/loops on the bottom or see the bobbin thread on top

    Here's a link to a video showing how to load a quilt using the red snappers. I have them and they are stiff at first but get easier. I'm not sure about using them if you have arthritis, though. I have tendonitis & can't pin all those pins every time, so I find the red snappers helpful. I had to sew pockets for them in my leader cloths

  • Re: long arm thread?

    I tried Isacord in the bobbin once (the oolor matched the backing fabric perfectly) until I learned that rayon thread should not be used in the bobbin of my Baby Lock Crown Jewel (dealer told me). I've never tried it as a top thread. My machine likes King Tut & Aurifil best but I can also use polyester threads on it. Carol already gave you the
