    Thanks for the thread tips. I’ve seen that thread gizmo and was sorely tempted. Glad to have a positive review

      It’s also handy to have at retreats and such. The Bernina thingy that holds threads in the upright position tends to wobble if I put a mini cone on it so I actually prefer the Superior gizmo.

        LOL. My head is spinning from all this technical talk of “thingys” and “gizmos”! Love your giveaway project, Jenny. Hope Long Beach is fun and productive for you.

      Thank you Roxane! It’s funny because I know to do that (the correct orientation of the spool) but I kept on wondering why I was having tension problems until I did a forehead slap and put the spool the right way.

    Jenny, how sturdy is the thread holder. I had a lightweight thread holder that traveled all over the table when I sewed. That thing is long gone. I replaced it with a heavy metal holder and I’ve been very happy with it. However, a spool can only feed from the top.

      It’s pretty sturdy Laura. I must admit one time it did travel but I think I did something stupid like get the thread caught. But in all the other times, it has stayed put.

    Wish I could be there but not this year! I just got all the classes I signed up for at the Houston show and I’m pleased about that. Will you be there? I can’t remember?

    Ow, that is beautiful!…very interesting about the tension issues related to the thread as well. I will be looking out for that in future, thanks :)

      Thank you! Yeah, tension can be frustrating. I try to pass on what I learn as I go!

    Thanks for the tip re: how the thread unwinds off the spool – now I know why my old machine had two spindles, one vertical and one horizontal.
