I love the fabric and your topstitching is superb! Thank you for sharing.

Thank you. It does look good from the top side. As I noted before, the bobbin thread was a challenge. I did try using regular construction thread in the bobbin but then the top side didn't look very good. As you noted, home sewing machines are problematic for this kind of stitching, mostly because I need to buy a special screwdriver to get into the bobbin to even see if I can adjust the tension. So instead I am buying a new straight stitch only machine! We don't have a baby lock dealer here but I got a machine with all the same features. Can't wait for it to arrive!
