Re: Acufil Stippling First Try


I have done 2 quilts this way now, and haven't had any problems with tension.  I used the regular bobbin holder and a Janome blue tip needle, regular cotton fabric with not too many seams, and fairly light weight batting (Quilters Dream Poly Select) with Exquisite embroidery thread which is a polyester 40 wt thread on both top and in the bobbin.

Maybe you could try changing to the other bobbin holder, using a different needle, or slowing down your machine and see if that does anything?
