I have a babylock imagine. I wish I didn't. Everytime I have issues with the automatic threading.


really, I had better issues with manual threading. I'm at the end of my rope. I am so getting to where I'm gonna sell or trade it for a kenmore or something like that.

when it works, its beautiful, but getting it to thread is the problem

any ideas please?

I sold mine for that very reason plus I like being able to adjust settings for various projects. I bought a Janome 1200D and absolutely love it!

I have an Imagine also and never have a problem. I think your machine needs service and possibly an adjustment.

Maybe the threading tubes are bent or clogged. Do you ever put oil in the holes?

Please take it to your dealer.

I am glad you were able to figure out the problem. The Imagine is a lovely machine. You will love not having to adjust your tensions!
