I'm wondering if anyone else has this problem. I have a new Babylock Grace sewing machine. I bought it in October.
When I'm sewing two pieces of fabric together, everything is fine. But when I'm sewing together two rows of pieces - say, HSTs, - the machine wants to eat my fabric. It happens nearly every time I go over some intersections where there are several layers of fabric "bunched" together. About 8-10 stitches AFTER I sew over the seam/intersection, something grabs the fabric behind the needle, the needle starts to sew in place and then turns sideways. I have to stop, take it all out, unstitch, and resew the area that has been grabbed and bunched up.
I took the machine back to the shop where I bought it, and tried to reproduce the problem with Teresa. It happened ONCE. But at least she understood what I was talking about. Off it went to the repair guy, who returned it after a week and said something about adjusting the feed dogs.
But after only a week or so of using it the problem has returned. I will be taking it back to the shop again. I think tomorrow morning I'll grab a few scraps and reproduce the problem so I have some examples of what's happening. I didn't have that before.
I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this.
