I keep reading about this but don't know what would happen if the timing were off. Would it be a problem making the stitches or skipping stitches?
The reason I ask is that my Avante seems noisier than when I purchased it (used) and seems to chatter. At first I thought it would chatter when going over seam allowances but it seems more frequent now.
I've oiled every other bobbin, cleaned lint, etc. Today, I ran the machine after oiling with the needle in but without a bobbin in the bobbin case and it was smooth and very quiet.
Thanks very much for reviewing this question.
