Question about Singer Featherweight II 117
I start sewing and about three stitches in the machine jams up with tangled thread on the underside of the material. It is the top thread that is getting tangled. I changed the bobbin to a different color to try to figure out what was happening. I don't know if my settings are wrong. I am a beginner so I con't have a clue Thanks
When your thread is bunching at the bottom, your top tension is not tight enough, or you did not thread the machine correctly. Make sure the thread goes through the tension blades. Check your manual how to do it properly. you can check if there is any tension by pulling on the thread before threading through the eye of the the needle, and with the presser foot down. By pulling with the left hand and adjusting the tension with the right hand you should be able to feel a difference. Normal setting is between 3 and 5
