Susan from Quixotic Crafter was so kind to send me 2 bobbin washers in the post, and when I got them I was so excited to try them out. Thanks again Susan, its a selfless gesture that I will never forget♥
Here is my practice block for QAL #17, you'll notice that I did not finish this, I gave up. I broke 2 needles and I cant think why or what went wrong. The circuit board design I found easy, following Leah's instruction made it simple to do, and would definitely want to use or try it again. But before I sounded like a the worst mannered pirate out there, and I'm sure I did (luckily I was alone :-) ) and before I made some serious damage to my machine I stepped back and decided to stop all together.
My question to Leah is this:
I use a Bernina 180 Artista, and up to now I have had little problems free motion quilting, but after I put in the bobbin washers I broke two new needles minutes after replacing them. Am I using it wrong? What I did was, removed the little silver thingy that was in the bobbin, and replaced it with the bobbin washer and started quilting. Should I have put that silver thingy back after I had put in the bobbin washer?
