When I sew I have thread bunching up underneath the fabric, I've changed needle size, thread, bobbins and cleaned out around the bobbin holder. I'm frustrated and out of ideas.


Susan--
Easy peasy, once you know the problem and how to fix it. It's called "bird nesting" or "thread nesting" or what I refer to as thread "barfs."

Install a brand new needle.
Remove all the thread from the machine.
**ALWAYS RAISE** the presser foot and rethread the top thread.
Verify the top thread path is correct.
Install and thread the bobbin case, make sure it is correct.
Set the top tension to the midway point.

Now retest your machine. Birds nests gone? You may need to tweak the top tension because the factory standard changes due to age and use.

FWIW, problems appearing under the fabric are an issue of the top thread. Thread problems appearing on top of the fabric is a bobbin issue.

WHY IS THREAD BUNCHING UNDERNEATH MY FABRIC

Thread on my consew 225 keeps balling the thread on the bottbottom


Sounds like bird nesting. The upper thread accumulates under the fabric creating a series of loops and knots.

First: Install a brand new needle and make sure it is installed facing the correct direction. (A new needle is the least expensive fix for most sewing machine issues.)

Second: Remove the thread. RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Make sure it is threaded correctly (consult the owner's manual).

Third: Pull up the bobbin thread through the fabric and gently hold the thread tails in your left hand while slowly taking the first couple of stitches.

I am having issues with threading my machine. I have followed the instructions but every time I sew on the machine the thread on the top sews correctly but underneath the cotton gathers up. What am I doing...


If the thread is bunching under the material it is the top tension. While threading the machine be sure the foot is in the up position until you are done threading it. If you have tried that and it still bunches you need to tighten the tension a bit at a time until it starts sewing correctly. Be sure you are starting with a clean machine and that the thread is not too large for the needle ....


hope this helps.

Sewing on reverse of fabric


There has to be thread on both sides of the cloth in order to form a stitch.

Refer to the maintenance section of your machine and clean the machine as recommended.

Did you change the thread or needle?

Check the manual to be sure the threading is correct and was done with the presser foot up.

Is the needle is correctly installed?

Check the bobbin to be sure the thread is feeding in the correct direction and through the guides on the side of the bobbin case.

Bottom stich from bobbin is bunching up.


Make sure you have the bobbin in the correct way round and make sure you have gone completely through the tension discs when threading the machine, make sure the top tension is set properly.

Thread bunching underneath fabric on Bicor VX1005 mahine.


The impulse is to blame the bobbin, because that's where the thread bunches. But the problem is probably with the top thread tension. The tension is too loose, allowing the bobbin to help itself to all the thread it wants. Retrace the path of the thread from spool to needle and see if you missed anything. The instructions in my VX1005 manual are not clear. I had to try a couple of paths before I got it right. Make sure the spring in the tension disk setup is moving freely. You should feel a fair amount of resistance when you pull on the needle thread. Hope this helps.
