Tip & How-To about Sewing Machines
This is usually caused by lack of top tension or threading the machine with the pressure foot down.
-Set the top tension dial to 5
-Raise the pressure before threading the machine
-"floss" the thread by holding the thread as it comes off the spool with your right hand and holding the thread right before the needle with your left hand. Make sure to do that with the pressure foot up. What happens is sometimes the thread doesn't go into the tension discs all the way due to lint or something else.
With the pressure foot up, you should be able to pull the thread easily right before the eye of the needle and when you put the foot down you should then feel a fair bit of tension on the top thread.
