Question about PfaFF Creative 7570
TRYING TO APPLIQUE, BOBBIN THREAD VERY LOOSE AND BUNCHING UP. I AM TRYING METALLIC THREAD BY GUTTERMAN COULD THIS BE PART OF THE PROBLEM OR IS IT ALL TENSION. I DID TRY TO ADJUST THE BOBBIN TENSION BUT STILL HAVE THE PROBLEM. HELP HELP THANKS. JR
I don't have the same brand as yours, but on my machine there is a little screw on the bobbin case that you tighten to increase the bobbin tension. If you've got one, turn it 1/8 to 1/4 turn at a time.

SOURCE: thread or bobbin tension
Thread tension. Beware of adjusting the bobbin screw. Pfaffs maintain their tensions just fine without adjusting the bobbin tension, unless you're using some crazy thick or fine thread. If you must change your bobbin tension, you would be well-advised to buy an extra bobbin case, because re-calibrating your tensions after changing them can be less than fun.
Increase your top tension, and your looping should cease. I normally keep my tension around 4.5. Also make sure you're using a good quality thread, and that there's nothing in the upper tension assemblies. Sometimes a tiny piece of debris can keep the top tension from applying enough tension, so turning the machine off and blowing some canned air in there can help as well.
