What's with the scrunching?
I can't use the extended table with my Coverpro CPX1000

My Coverpro came with a nice little extension table which I thought would be very handy. It turns out that when I put it on the machine it scrunches up the material behind the pressure foot and makes the machine skip stitches. When I remove the table the machine works just fine. Anyone else encounter this problem?

I once had scrunching behind the foot and soon discovered that the table was not attached to the machine bed correctly.
The table had remained slightly higher than the machine bed and the fabric could not feed smoothly over the edge of the table. Re attaching the table, so that it was level witht he machine bed, remedied the scrunching. I tend to attach the little narrow section first.
Hoping this easy fix will help
