I have an Ellure that is only a year old. I just had it serviced in November because the needle bar was cracked. I just completed sewing a quilt, and now I'm trying to embroider. Every time I embroider, I get a big birds nest underneath. So I've threaded, rethreaded, and threaded again, changed the needle, and changed and rechanged the bobbin to no avail. Also, my bobbin thread is showing on the front of my design. I've changed the thread tension to -8 (the loosest) and it does not help at all. I've tried to change every setting I know and it still looks terrible. It seems that my embroidering gets screwed up every time after I'm doing normal sewing. Please help!
PS - the place where I bought my machine is no help. Even though I've been embroidering for five years, they keep telling me I don't know what I'm doing.
I have the same machine and love it. Sometimes if the thread is old that will happen to me. And also I spray the thread with static guard before i thread the machine in dry cold weather. Since you said you are an embroiderer I assume you are using the same weight thread top and bottom. The other thing that causes that on my machine is if there is a nick on the spool of thread I am using and the thread catches just a little as it comes off the spool. I use a fine nail file and smooth off the edge where the little v is to reattach the thread when you are finish using it. I never use them. You do sew a little and cut off the tail off the top thread before you let it go through the rest of design. I hope you have found the solution but I learned these tricks while having the same problem as you.

You have your bobbin inserted into the machine spinning in the wrong direction. take the bobbin out and flip it over and wind around needle plate guide and cut. Look at the little pictogram on the plastic part of the machines throat plate. It shows which direction the thread should spin off the spool when you drop the top loading bobbin into the bobbin case.
Have you reset the tensions for this machine, look in your manual and follow directions. If this is an Elegante there is also a set of instructions on the machine. On the LCD screen there is a picture of a sewing machine with a question mark, touch it, find Troubleshooting and touch that then find the problem you are having and read. If this does not help take it to a Brother dealer and have it reset so as to keep you machine in good running order.
I'm not sure which thread you are referring to, its either the bobbin thread (under) or the needle thread (above.top) I'm sure you can find some helpful advise here on the baby lock site http://www.babylock.com/support/faq/?FAQ=10
Have you looked at
your manual or bought the more expensive machine book from your dealer? I wasn't happy at the addtional cost at the time (I spent $2200 US that day) BUT I have
found my book for my Evolve a VERY good investment (70 bucks, but worth
every penny these past 2 years!) You may find the same for your Ellure.

I have the same problem, I have done what the book says but no luck yet. Have you figured out what happened? And do the experts really check the questions? Cause I asked a question awhile ago, and no answers. Help!
