I finally learned how to upload my pictures from my cell to the computer!!
December last year I bought the 820 plus the quilting frame with dreams of all the quilting fun I was going to have......... unfortunately to say things turned out differently. Poor tension and uneven stitches demotivated me. My other machine is a Artista 200 without BSR and I think my quality of work was much better!!
Earlier today I read Mercia's blog Tropical Applique and saw that she also had some problems with the needles, thread and tension. Well, I just finished unpicking a quilt because of very poor tension.
I did go and see my dealer and we did spend a whole afternoon playing with thread and tension, but I still am not completely satisfied with the results. The BSR does not give me a desired result either.
I have an extra bobbin case for my 200 (As Diane Gaudynski advises) and was quite comfortable playing around with tension - but on the 820 I just don't seem to get it perfect! I own both her books and love the free-motion process. On the 820 it is a total different ball game..... which I am struggling with!!
