Check the tension on both the upper and lower threads is similar. It sounds like the thread on the lower spool is under tensioned. On most machines the tension is increased by a small screw on the spool.

    The only other suggestions I can make are to ensure that you have the correct needle type for the application and make sure it is a good one.

    Make sure that you have cleaned out any lint etc from the mechanics.

    Knots and nests are usually caused by incorrect tension.

    Get some scrap and try making small adjustments and trying the results before adjusting again.

Nesting thread on bottom of fabric


This is called bird nesting or thread nesting. It occurs most often because the thread is not seated completely in the tension disk.

Remove the top thread from the machine.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning.
Verify the thread path is correct.
It also may help to use a brand new needle.

Why does the needle make knots at the bottom?


Those are called bird nests or thread nests (or what I prefer to call thread barfs).

The most frequent cause is that the presser foot should ALWAYS BE RAISED when threading the top thread.
