I'm stitching out free motion samples in tons of different threads to review.

I just found the first thread my machine does not like.  I actually didn't even finish the 5" square for worry of my machine.  It was making the most awful clunking noises. I rethreaded top and bottom, I oiled, I changed tension to heavier, I changed tension to lighter, I used 4 different bobbin threads, I changed the needle, and still the machine CLUNK CLUNK CLUNK.

It's not the machine, switched to another thread and it is running smoothly again.

This is the first time I've really understood what people meant when they said their machine didn't like a thread!

More coming soon! (Including tell you what this thread is!)
