    I ditched the B&T pattern and used the peekaboo one next. It's such a better fit. I also made this hungry caterpillar one in 000 so can't use it yet. 20190116_075245.jpg20190116_144658.jpg20190116_144716.jpg

    Hi ladies! Hoping that you can help....
    I've got an old Elna 2130. I got it new, years ago. It's had minimal use.
    It's never worked right. It ALWAYS, from day 1 snags underneath, pulls the material into the bottom, skips stitches etc.
    I've taken it to where we got it from initially, and the lady tested it herself, and said it was fine she used my needles and cotton. I left it threaded, went home, put my own fabric into it and left everything as it was..... and had the same problem of snagging and tension 🤦‍♀️
    I've had it serviced, and same thing... they said it's fine but it doesn't work when I get home, without touching anything!!

    So......I accidentally had baby brain when iron-on labelling Drs work shirts, and stuck his name on upside down 🤣

    I figured I'd try and fix it, by cutting up an old shirt, and making a patch. Seemed easy enough.... I figured I'd basically have it looking like it was double stitched, by sewing the edge down about 1cm I'm, then sewing the patch onto the shirt at the edge.
    The idea worked in my mind.... but my machine, true to form, has other plans.

    Thoughts??

    I'm using a stretch needle and 100% gutermann cotton in both the bobbin and top thread. The bobbin is three one that came with the machine... although I have purchased extras to suit from spotlight. The fabric is stretchy hi-vis t shirt/polo, so not the easiest to work with, but I've worked with cotton, knits, fabric, micro-fleece, satin etc before so Its not like it's completely uncharted territory.

    I'm actually having better luck hand- sewing and my skills are terrible 🤣
