Question about Brother LS-1217 Mechanical Sewing Machine
Thread on top looks good but you turn it over and it looks like it squigels instead of a clean sewing look.
It sounds as if the top tension is not high enough.

It sounds like you maybe using the wrong needle size for the material you are sewing, or perhaps it is the thread. I've found that not all threads are created equal and it may be too fine/heavy for the needle gauge your using.
