Tension wise, you hv to sorta play with it until you get it right.

Hv you tried the stabilizer as suggested in the other thread? I believe it was the cap tearaway?...

I'm not an expert (others may correct me here) but I only use Schmetz 75/11 (now I don't know what it means by size #11) for embroidering ribbon.

On the puckering, i'm not sure either if it has to do with your needle. I do know it's all in the stabilizer and tension. You hv to play with your knob tension (it should be in your manual which way to go/turn, decrease/increase). I found that the factory setting doesn't necessarily means it's the correct tension especially on the embroidering.

the puckering is better but i have bobbin thread showing through on top in spots does that mean i should decrease tension more or should i float some stablizer underneath

It sounds like to me that your upper tension is too tight because it is pulling the bobbin thread up to the top. Make the upper tension weaker.

I need help with this too! My bobbin thread keeps showing on top too, and I have yet to figure out what I am doing wrong. Every once in a while, it comes out prefect. I was wondering if it was my stabilizer. I just ordered the fabri-solvy on-line. The plastic products seem not to work! Any thoughts?
