I am having a problem with the tension on my Avante which I purchased in July. When I first start stitching at the beginning of a quilting session after the machine has been turned off and back on, my thread tension is always way too loose, even if nothing has changed since my last quilting session (e.g., bobbin change, rethread, etc.). Once I get the tension set correctly on my test piece, the thread tension feels like it is MUCH tighter than the bobbin tension. When I start quilting, the thread tension begins to tighten up as I quilt and I end up with eyelashes on the top. I have rethreaded the bobbin, rethreaded the machine, removed the throat plate to make sure there isn’t any lint in the bobbin case, checked the bobbin tension, and so forth. This has happened with 3 different threads, all of which I purchased from my Handi Quilter representative. Currently, I am using poly wrapped poly Omni Thread by Superior Threads with Hobbs 80/20 batting. I’m using good quality regular quilting cotton –not any batiks which I understand may cause problems with thread breakage. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated – I’m spending a lot of time on the floor looking at the back of the quilt to make sure that the tension remains correct. Thanks.
