Re: 9mm throat plate query

Hello Pru, 

I had the same experience  when I started testing out stitches on the 15000 and then saw a YouTube video from The fat quarter shop - sewing small squares for patchwork, they began with a small square of fabric/ stabiliser and nothing caught under the needle plate. Does anyone know what else to try?

Thank you all for all the interesting information related to these beautiful machines ;) Tanya

Since sewing on my mc15000 I have been having a problem with the start & end of my seams being gobbled & bunched by the machine.  I did not have this problem to this degree on my former 7mm machines.  

I am wondering if it is due to the larger open area under the fabric.  I will try a smaller, 11/75 needle size to sew light gingham tomorrow to see if that also helps.  Plus I will draw up both threads so that I can hold them behind the needle & give a bit of a pull for the first few stitches, as I used to do on my former machines too.

Has anyone else experienced this?  Are there any tips as to how to avoid it yet sew right to the start & end of the fabric with the 9mm needle plate?
