I recently purchased the new CoverPro...and as much as I love this machine, I know I could love it more. On each piece I sew I tend to ALWAYS gets skips. And forget even trying to go faster than a turtles pace cause that causes even more skips. So wondering if anyone can offer tips/tricks/advice on how to prevent this. I work with knits about 90% of the time.
1) I get skips just randomly. If I have a thinner knit I will use a seam tape for a little more stability.
2) I can not go that fast on anything or that makes the skips worse. I usually have to go painfully slow.
3) When I have thicker seams, the looper thread is always missed. I have tried the tricks of snipping the seams a bit to lay them opposite directions but I still tend to get lots of missed looper stitches on the thicker seams.
Right now these are my main frustrations. So any help would be appreciated. I really have so much planned for this machine, but I hate to start working on bigger projects cause I spend more time fixing skipped stitches right now. So Please PLEASE any advice would be great!!!
