I was having a terrible time, because the thread kept snapping and I could not figure out why. Was it the ruffler? no. Was it the bobbin and shuttle? No. Was it the tension? No. Was it the needle point? No.
I am an idiot? Yes. Do you see where this is going?
You see, I put the needle in backwards! I was convinced that the flat side had to face right. Finally, after hours of torment and frustration, I looked at the diagram on page ten.
Oh, to the left.
Anyways, the tablecloths are done, and the ruffler is a great attachment when operator error isn't bringing me down!
Please tell me other people do dumb stuff like this, and I'm not the ONLY one!! :)
