Finally! No skipped stitches and no puckering with a PTFE thread


My primary machine is the Sailrite 111. Wonderful machine! This is the second time I've tried Tenara thread. The first was a few years ago and proved too frustrating with too many skipped stitches. Being a professional canvas shop, I wanted to give it another try. This time, I suspended the spool horizontally from the thread stand ( a Sailrite suggestion). Using a #14 needle, the thread kept breaking. I switched to a Serv 7 #16 needle, and with a few tension adjustments on the bobbin and upper tension, the thread was sewing beautifully. No missed stitches and no puckering. The material I'm using is Sunbrella Plus. I hope this holds true for the other Tenara colors as well. So far, I am finally happy with a PTFE thread. I use Solarfix as well and it has its own issues with puckering.

I will continue using the Tenara if it continues sewing this nicely..
