It Looked Fine From the Front...


Hint: If the machine sounds a bit off, it probably is.

Bummer!

That's hilarious...how could it do all that and not break the thread or something ? I think it's morphed into a knitting machine.

Comment above - yes, I thought it WAS knitting! Arghhhhh!

I hate that when the thread is all crazy tension like that- I guess the silver lining is that it was easy to take out because it is so loose. Hope you have solved the tension without too much difficulty.

I'm still making friends with my long arm machine (affectionately known as Harley). I've had this exact thing happen too many times and I just can't tell until I take a look underneath, which is difficult sometimes - I actually use a flashlight! What I've started doing is a test off to the side every time I make a change - that seems to be helping. Also just becoming more familiar with the machine is a help, too. All that to say - as have others - I feel your pain. And it is a pain to have to pull it all out. Blah!

My machine makes chenille on a fairly regular basis! I find if I rethread it, it behaves perfectly - until the next time!

And I thought you had attached a piece of lace ;-)

Not what you were going for, I'm certain. But you have to say, it sure created a lot of textural interest didn't it! ;-)
