I’ve been wanting to make a quilt out of old jeans. Is this machine strong enough to sew through the layers?
Yes it should be fine... I find the space between the needle and the side of the machine is tight when quilting everything together so it's not the best machine for that. And can get a bit wobbly on very thick parts but should be ok.

Can you tell me what is wrong with the machine sewing backward instead of forward? (brother gs2700)
IT has got a switch for back stitching, if you flip it it should start sewing forward.Thank youI think the above solution by Rose results in temporary fixing of your problem.I think your machines problem is-the button guiding foot (located left to presser foot) is in lower position.pull it upward.you can fix your problem by doing this.

Hi how do you turn the stitch dial to stitch 16 and above ? I am really new to this ... thanks
Turn the Stitch Length Dial to 'SS' then turn your Stitch Selection Dial to desired Stitch Number, Refer to your manual for recommended stitch widths. I hope that helps. :)Hi i was very new at this and i couldn't work this one out, i had been to spotlight/lincarft a million times with the manual and they couldnt even work it out. Turn the last dial on the right hand side all the way, even if it feels as though it wont turn turn it all the way untill the black line finishes and the SS comes up, the turn the nob to select blue stitches, i worked this one out on my own just by playing around with it, anymore questions im happy to help just email me at Brunswick@rh.com.au so i can forward you some photos! but this machine is awesome!!!!!
