Question about Husqvarna Viking 1
I was sewing - using a straight stitch - without a problem and for no apparent reason my thread started wrapping itself around the bobbin and created a giant clump! I had to work to cut the clump off. Afterwards I could not get the machine to sew properly again.
I'm in the middle of project and really need my sewing machine...HELP!
Frustrating huh? it happens! even to us that have been sewing for 50+ years, but the solution is very simple. Top thread tension is the culprit. pull the spool all the way off and rethread the top, follow the threading path precisely and make sure the thread goes down into the tension discs.
one more thing - when that happens often times the piece has to be removed from the machine by cutting those annoying loops on the bottom. if this is the case, make sure you have removed all the thread clippings from in and around the bobbin case. sometimes one little piece of thread will make you want to use swear words.
good luck and happy stitching.
