Testing -

Today I tested ten different thread combinations - 
Different top threads -
But the same bobbin thread weight/type -  
And  f found a few that Gracie didn't like-
And some that she did - 
I tested two of the Grace sample threads - 
And Gracie liked them both - 
Surprise - surprise - LOL - 

A GREEN solid -

And a MULTI-colored variegated -

 She also liked this YELLOW combination -

For my own records - 
I tested each thread combination - four different ways - 
  • Regulated Cruise - 10 stitches per inch
  • Regulated Cruise - 14 stitches per inch
  • Regulated Precise - 10 stitches per inch 
  • Regulated Precise - 14 stitches per inch 
I haven't thoroughly analyzed all of the results yet -
But I did notice that she didn't particularly like the "Regulated Precise" mode -
Nor did she like the 14 stitches per inch - 
So tomorrow I'll narrow it down to the "Regulated Cruise" mode - 
And 10 stitches per inch -

Then re-test the same combinations -
Plus a few more just for fun -
I think she likes 50 wt. polyester best - 
So - if all I have to do to make her happy - 
Is change the "mode" and lengthen the stitch -
And find her favorite thread type and weight - 
I think I can do that - ;))
Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

Hmmm.... I didn't realize that you are using a "regulated" stitch length. I tried a domestic machine with a stitch regulator once and I hated it. Of course that was years ago. Maybe I need to try one again to be fair.

I know my old sewing machine doesn't like the "cheap" thread I was using. I now have to only use the Guterman thread. It makes it go though. :) Kara
