Question about Janome Hello Kitty 11706 Mechanical Sewing Machine
I don't know how to explain the problem other than to say there is too much thread on the back side of the fabric. I had been sewing for about 30 minutes when it began. It looks like maybe the bobbin thread is catching each time. Like the first time the bottom thread is 1 strand. The next stitch pulled through 2 and then 3 and so on. That's the best way I can explain what is going on. I am 1 foot of trim away from window treatments that have been diving me mad since I started them 2 MONTHS AGO!
It sounds as if the machine is not threaded correctly so there is no tension and the result is a wad of thread on the underside of the fabric. Make sure your presser foot is in the up position and try rethreading the machine. If this does not correct the problem, check your thread path, sometimes you will get pieces of thread lodged in the tension assembly, especially between the metal tension disc. Make sure your tension dial is set between 3-5 to begin. You can adjust it higher as needed, but hopfully you won't need to be higher than 5, if so, you probably need an internal adjustment.
