I have long stitches now,it started with only long stitches in a curve but now it is all stitches. I did run out of bobbin thread and after this change is when I started having this problem. I have tried to adjust the tension but I guess I just don't know how to go about it. I am almost to the point of selling this aggravating machine. Someone HELP!!! I have a quilt on the machine that must be finished by Thursday! FRUSTRATED!!
You may have accidentally changed the amount of stitches per inch. For most quilting I use 10 per inch. The lower the number, the longer the stitches.
Sorry, forgot to add that I tend to accidentally do that when switching in and out of regulated mode. My machine is 7 years old so it has an older version of stitch regulator.
Thank you so much! The stitch regulator wheel did have a lint build up, cleaned it and stitching beautifully except now my upper thread is breaking about every 10 inches. I've changed the needle, re-threaded, cleaned bobbin....what should I do now? It seems like I get one thing fixed and then something else goes haywire. I know with experience I'll be able to figure out these issues but for now it's frustrating. HELP AGAIN!!
