Do You Believe?

Some of you may remember this gal.
I had her on a post that was about bird nesting and backlash due to
my sewing machine having an extremely bad case of
"BUGGERED STITCHING" or "B.S." for short.(wink)
For those of you that have been lucky enough not to have experienced this
phenomenon with your sewing machine, this is what it looks like.
This is the back of a quilt for my Granddaughter,
see the mess of thread (pretty bad, isn't it?).
No matter how many times I re-threaded, ripped out, re-stitched, ripped out, re...
you get the picture?!
After the post, I had so many fantastic friends share their solutions with me that I was able to
complete both my Grandkids quilts!
Thank you all so very much!
The way I fixed the problem  was to cut out a small circle of
sew-in interfacing and place it in the bobbin case first
then my bobbin!! No more headaches!!
I may give the teflon discs a try yet but since I'm 45 minutes from the nearest retailer,
this solution was spot on!
