So short of ripping it all out, I have to deal with it. I did find that if I went slower I could feel when the needle was starting to stick. In these areas I made extra sure I held my quilt securely and as flat as possible and that seemed to help. It cut down on the times I needed to rip thread out and restart. I did read that a larger needle might help so I ordered some yesterday to be here today. I love Amazon.
P.S. I got so many visitors to my blog yesterday from Freshly Pieced. And more comments than I ever have! Thanks everyone. So glad I decided to start linking up with Lee.
