I was determined to find out if my recent problems with my sewing machine truly were a thread issue or if I had a machine issue. I tried a bunch of different threads with my “challenging” sewing machine today.
Not one bit of breakage or skipping.
The machine just does not like thread that is slightly thicker…or I didn’t find the right settings to make it happy. But after fiddling with it for half a spool of thread, I’m pretty sure there are NOT any settings that would work. So, I will resign myself to the fact that my higher speed machine can’t eat the thick thread correctly and will have to stick with a diet of low-fat thread…but that leaves a whole bunchof thread to happily choose from!
And nice to know that I really can manage my machine. It’s just my threads that need more adjusting than I thought.
