Hi, all these gear making videos are getting me in the mood to try my hand at making some gear again.
One thing the was frustrating my last project was an issue I was running into at the end of a stitch. This didn't happen all the time, but I would say at least 50% of the time. When I finished the stitch, released the foot, and then removed the fabric, I would have 4 lines of thread instead of the two I normally had. Also it was a lot harder to pull the fabric away, as there was a lot of tension holding it back. Once I got it away, and would cut all four, I would find that two of them were actually one string I could just pull out.
Has anyone had this happen to them? Or does anyone have any ideas as to what I am doing wrong, and how I might fix it?
