Question about Bernina Artista 180
It's impossible to get a neatly balanced stitch while free-motion quilting on my Bernina 640 . I have the BSR attachment and am disappointed in the quality of the quilting...top looks o.k., but back side looks like a thread has been laid down and held there by couching. There is SOME improvement when I turn the tension dial to the maximum setting (10.0) but it still is nowhere near perfect.
I've tried varying weights of threads, new needle, making sure upper thread and bobbin match and trying upper thread and bobbin threat UNmatched in weight. So far nothing has helped.
None of the Bernina product listings match my machine (640 Artista) so I'm randomly clicking one of the Artista models. Hopefully it is similar enough to my machine to get an answer to my question.
Try using a straight stitch plate, this will help resolve some of the eye lash effect.
