In Video #2 we finally start stitching!

    Hi, Vanessa

    Thanks for this tutorial. I am a beginning quilter and did not know where/how to start quilting my quilt sandwich. I’ve watched other videos and read books and did not understand them. This video is simple but very informing. I now know how to begin, check and end stitches. Will start practicing today. LOVE IT!!!!

    Thanks again

    Hi Vanessa
    I noticed that you used the generic open toe foot for your 2010. I love my machine, needed an open toe, ordered the one you have but from sewingonline. May I ask how you adjusted your tension or another part of your machine to use this foot. I am not getting a consistent stitch with it. My original feet work beautifully. I do notice a slight wiggle when the foot is on the machine–did you find that? Perhaps I got a bad foot. Just want to make sure that it is the foot before I send it back.

      Hi Elaine. I would send it back sounds like it’s defective. I didn’t have to adjust anything with mine. Hope that helps!

    Hi Vanessa,
    Thank you so much for your tutorials. I just purchased a JukiTL 2010 Q and already the thread cutter has stopped working. Any tips?
