Are you supposed to be able to use the speed slider on the front of the machine to adjust your sewing speed while pressing down on the foot pedal? My teacher in a quilting class tried to adjust my speed control while I was free motion quilting and it did not work. I am trying to determine if my machine is broken, or if the speed control does not work that way. Thank you for any advice.

All of the Bernina that I have had with speed control bars have worked that way.

No, the speed sliders on the 3 series machines only affect the speed when using the Start/Stop button! They won't change the speed when using the foot control. I have a B380 and this is about my only gripe with it :)

Thank you. At least now I know it isn't broken! Wish it did work with the foot pedal though. The different needle down is also taking getting used to.
