Have you ever been sewing along and realized
that the back of your fabric looks like this, where you threads are all loopy? Usually,
the sewing machine sounds a little growly when it’s sewing this. You’re finding, “Oh,
my goodness. That looks like a tension issue.” Yes and no. Here’s the thing. A lot of people
think because this is on the back of the fabric, the problem is in the bobbins, but it’s not.
What we have here is that the thread is actually not sitting in the tension disks. Right up
the cap here, there are two disks that open and close when the foot is lifted or lowered. Right now, when the foot is up, it is very
loose to pull the thread out here. When the foot is down, that threads to become tight
and that needle should actually bend. If the machine is not, or I should say the thread,
is not sated all the way down into these disks, you’re going to have an issue with the tension
is going to look like it’s off, but really it’s just a matter of not having the machine
threaded correctly. All you need to do is rethread the cap of the machine, make sure
the thread fits all the way down here and make sure the foot is up when you are threading
it. That’s when the disks are actually open and then, go ahead and test it out. You should
be good to go.
