    sewing machine help

    Advertisements
    Ok, So I am trying to sew and I am getting very frustrated!! When I sew...the stitch on the top is fine....the stitch on the bottom is getting big loops or loose loops every so often...what could be causing this? How can I fix it?

    Something is wrong with your bobbin thread or the tension. I would try re-threading the machine, including the bobbin thread. If that doesn't work, try to adjust your tension knob to a tighter tension.

    your thread tension is off. You need to adjust the bobbin tension most likely to get it work again. It usually tells you in the manual how to do it!
