  6. Most of her tension issues are solved by re-threading her machine or cleaning out the bobbin case, but switching to better thread has made her have fewer issues in the first place.

  12. She usually re threads or cleans the shuttle but I guess the answer you're looking for is changing to a better thread!

  13. Rethread and clean out the shuttle.She also changed to a better thread. I had the same issues and found that a better thread was the answer. I read somewhere that tension issues are usually not change the tension but change the needle or the thread first.

  14. She re-threaded her machine and switched to better thread!

  15. Of the choices you listed
    (2) switching to better thread
    is the best choice as you didn't list what she wrote that she does 90% of the time.
    She said that "nine times out of ten I can fix it(tension problems) by re-threading the machine or cleaning out the shuttle."
    For "actual quilting" switching to better thread (Aurifil) has helped her tremendously.

  16. She would re thread and try again. I have had this work wonders for me too. Sometimes it fixes a multitude of problems.
    Thanks for the great blog and contest.

  17. Rethreading and changing to a better thread. I really want to try some Aurifil, I've heard so many good things about it!

  18. I went to her blog but I'm afraid there's no post on "Know thy machine' and the last post I can see is the 3rd of October, am I missing something here?

    Anyway, re-threading the machine is a good idea, to solve tension issues, therefore, the answer would be 2.

  24. #2 is correct as Cori has switched to Aurifil thread. But...she also knows that re-threading and cleaning the bobbin area/shuttle are really important.
