If your thread messes up on the bottom then the problem lie in the top threadinbg of the machine.. Some how it is not thru the tension wheel like it needs to be. FYI.. Loops on the bottom fix the top.. Loops on the top, fix the bobbin.

I'm sewing a zig zag stitch and the underside is a perfect zig zag and the upper side looks like it should be the underside....how can I fix this so that the beautiful zig zag is on the top?


FIRST > Make sure your bobbin case is threaded correctly...

NEXT
For normal straight sewing the top tension should be around 5, for zigzag or satin stitch you need to lower your upper thread tension a bit. Try it at 4, if it still pulls your bottom thread to the top try it at 3 etc...

The top thread is so tight I can't pull it thru and the thread balls up on the bottom. I have tried adjusting it and can't get any thing solved.


If the thread balls up on the bottom of the fabric, USUALLY the upper tension is insufficient.

ALSO check for the correct threading both above and below and verify the needle is oriented correctely with the long groove toward you.
