Question about Bernina Artista 180
I just had the machine serviced and I sewed successfully with the walking foot while stitching in the ditch of a quilt. When I changed to a darning foot and dropped the feeddogs I could only sew a little ways when the machine would make metallic noises and skip stitches. The thread does not usually bread. I have changed the needle, changed the thread and changed the tension both upper and lower and nothing seems to work. Can you help? The technician is out of town for a week and I have important work to do. Geez!
Sounds like there might be some threads caught between the tension discs. Try using a small strip of fabric to 'floss' between them. You might also have some thread caught in the hook assembly.
