Question about Brother LS-1217 Mechanical Sewing Machine
Decorative stitches- when sewing zig-zag etc. the stitching I see as I am sewing is the underneath of the stitch and the zig-zag etc. is perfect underneath the material. Mahine was running fine before this problem started. Please tell me this is a simple fix.
It sounds like your tensions are out of adjustment. Your upper tension should be between 3-5 and make sure the tension in your bobbin case is not too tight as well. Pull the thread through the bobbin case and make sure it comes out with a small amount of resistance. If no resistance, tighten the tension just a bit, if too much resistance, loosen it just a small bit at a time.
