I just did my first belt on the new Cowboy. I had practiced on 4 different practice ends first, and unfortunately, every one of them worked perfectly at the tip. I was concerned that the stitch length would put the hole in other than the right spot. Well, every one worked out, so I went for it. Unfortunately, THIS time, of course, it didn't work out. I tried to make the most of it, and it's not totally horrible, but not what I wanted. So, what is the procedure for making the turn at the point, if the stitches don't cooperate? I tried to intentionally mess one of the practice pieces up, just so I could make it work out right, and ended up skipping a stitch. I suspect that it involved raising the presser foot, and the needle, and aligning it by hand. That is what I did on the practice piece that caused a skipped stitch. Obviously did something wrong! Any video on the process that any of you are aware of? I couldn't find one. thanks, Jeff
I have a Chandler 406RB that mostly works great, but I'm having some trouble with thickness changes while sewing. I make wallets, and when I'm sewing from the thinner section along the top to slightly thicker to down the edge where the pocket assembly starts, often I get this long loose stitch on the bottom where the thickness changes. Sometimes it's literally a loop a half inch or more long. Everything else looks good though, tension-wise, so I'm not sure what to do about it. Any suggestions for keeping this from happening?
