If you have pattern dials set correctly then I might guess that one or more sets may have been missed when the thread was being set up in the machine. most of these models show either arrows or numbers for each or way the thread needs to be routed.

Your thread tension needs adjustment.
Most likely it is the lower thread tension (not the upper thread tensioner).
When sewing very thin or very heavy material - it is required to adjust the lower tension as well.
To regulate the lower thread tension - turn the small screw on the tension spring of the bobbin case with a small screwdriver.
To increase tension - turn it clockwise SLIGHTLY.

For light weight cotton use size 11 even 10, thinner ones, instead for heavier fabric use size 14 that is thicker.
Get an assorted pack of ball pointed needles and test them. The needles below are for your Brother machine.

If, you do not have the manual, please go to Brother.com and download one for free. Also, to change your needle without a screwdriver, use a nickel or dime. Sometimes that works better than a screwdriver and won't strip your screw head.
