Re: needing help with a ruffle
I'm guessing here that the thread that is breaking is the
bobbin threads you are pulling to gather the ruffle. If so,
try using *topstitching* or *buttonhole-twist* thread in the
*bobbin*, loosen the needle thread tension, and increase the
stitch length to 7-6 stitches-per-inch. And I always sew
two gathering stitches, the first just outside the seam
allowance, the second 1/4" away in the seam allowance.
You will do better with answers to general sewing questions
in alt.sewing, but if this really was a machine embroidery
question, my apologies for misunderstanding.
