Question about Husqvarna Viking 1
Using Viking Lily to do free motion quilting with darning foot. Top thread forms small loops on underside every inch or so, sometimes less. I have changed the needle, used different thread, re-threaded the machine, cleaned out lint...no help. Machine makes a sound as if the needle is hitting something, but I can't see if it really is.
I need more info.
>Where is your presser fooot pressure set(1-9) it should be around 4?
>How fast are you free motioning (faster is better? from 1-10 10 being full speed.
>Is your bobbin threaded correctly (I need to cover the basics.)?
>Never never use a needle smaller than a 90/14 for free motion (I know everyone's an expert...but trust me)
After all this, it's OK to tighten your tension up on top a little when free motioning and getting eyelashes/spider webs on bottom. around 6 should do it though.
