Hi all - I just joined this discussion group due to my frustration with
trying to use my Mega Quilter. It is a Viking - the mid arm size and is
giving me fits related to tension. I took it to the shop for evaluation
and it is no better after $150.00 in repairs and tune ups.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

What types of problems are you having? Loops on top? Loops on bottom?
Does it happen when you're sewing in one direction or another?

It skips stitches when I am sewing circles or slow down - lots of

I have adjusted the tension in the past and then took to the dealer for
tune up.

It seems to sew in a straight line pretty well especially when I am going
at a higher speed.

Any tips are appreciated.

I don't think tension is the problem. Why don't you contact me off group
(email is shown in my signature), and we can try finding a solution.
