SOURCE: My europro 464xc sewing machine sews fine with

Home use machines have a very difficult time with heavier thread, you are OK with size 50 and the larger size 40, but not with anything thicker. You can maybe get away with your thread by turning the upper tension higher, try it with the tension at 7 or 8 or 9, it "may" give you better results.

Just a note of warning, that thread may jam the machine and break your gears or your bobbin case.

The lower thread on this machine continues to bunch up, no matter what we try.


Please check whether it is the bobbin thread or the top thread that is messing up. If it's under the fabric, it is 99% the top thread and is called bird nesting or thread nesting.

Remove the top thread from the machine.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning.
Verify the thread path is correct.
Also check that the bobbin is loaded and turning the correct direction in the bobbin case.
Now, retest the machine.

You may need to tweak the tension to get it where it looks best.

Hi. I have a Necchi MOD559. For some reason the stitches on the bottom stay too loose, so that I get little string hooks and not a clean tight stitch. From the top it looks great. Advice anyone?


Yep, It is called bird nesting or thread nesting. The number one reason is that the top thread is not seated completely in the top tension disk.

Install a brand new needle.
Remove the top thread from the machine.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Confirm the thread path is correct.
Now recheck your machine stitching.

Remember if the thread issue shows under the fabric, it is a top thread problem. If the thread issue shows on top of the fabric, it is a bobbin problem.

If the top thread still shows on the underside of the fabric, you may need to tighten the top thread so it will pull the bobbin thread up.

Machine jammed and pulled bobbin up out of it's case


since the machine jamed, I would suggest changing the needle incase it got bent or damaged
the reason for the birds nest under the fabric, the thread came off the thread take up lever, if it does it again you can try a piece of tape over it so the thread won't come off of the thread take up lever again
I use to have trouble with mine doing that.

My Singer Futura keeps beeping and stopping every few seconds.


There are a few problems this could be. Your top thread could be broken or about to break; your bobbin thread could be broken, about to break or empty/about to become empty and is loose around the bobbin; you could have a birds' nest (a mass of thread just under the fabric/presser foot and/or within the feed dog and bobbin) forming and causing a jam; or it could be your Futura having a little bit of a hissy fit. Obviously, if you've checked for broken thread you need to move on. Check for a birds' nest by removing the fabric and clip your threads. If you find one, clear it, rethread your bobbin and begin sewing again. If there's no birds' nest, then place the fabric back in and try sewing/embroidering again. If the machine acts up again, I recommend removing the fabric/hoop, rethreading your top and bobbin threads, replacing fabric/hoop and resuming where you left off. If the machine still gives you trouble, try hitting the start button for a couple of times and seeing if the problem doesn't simply resolve itself. When you're embroidering areas that have a few small, short stitches only, the machine seems to act up a little and then behaves fine once you bypass the area. Be sure to take all of the other steps first, though, because a birds' nest will RUIN a beautiful seam or embroidery.

Singer sewing machine stiches not forming & thread bunching


Sounds like what is called bird nests or thread nests. The top thread is not seated completely in the tension disk.

Remove the top thread completely from the machine.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Verify the thread path is correct.

Now, retest your machine.
