SOURCE: thread on bottom, bobbin thread loose

Sounds as though you've misthreaded the upper tension. The best way to verify this would be to thread your machine, lower the presser foot on to the material. Now try pulling the thread through the needle. (Assuming your upper tension dial is set to a number greater than one). You should feel resistance. Should you not feel resistance, rethread your upper tension.

SOURCE: I have a singer futura ce-250/ce-350 machine.

I have been sewing for quite some time on other machines. I assumed I knew all that I needed to do and I have the same problem, bunching undeneathe. I found out my problem was twofold. One when you thread the top part - you should pull the thread back and forth in the top thread guide. (#1 in the manual page 6). The second thing was the curly tail in front. It really needs both of these. I hope this helps you. Made me feel really inexperienced. I actually pulled out the manual.

Have you checked the top thread is correctly placed in the spring of the bobbin case?

I have a singer prelude sewing machine - the thread started binding from the bobbin up - there were about 50 threads pierced through my test patch.


what you describe is thread bunching and is typical of the needle thread tension being too loose
adjust that right up, run a test sew and go from there

The bobbin thread when sewing has little loops


You do not have the tension on your machine set correctly. That is leaving the bobbin thread too loose, hence the loops you are seeing. What kind of machine do you have? I can tell you where the tension is located. Also, tell me what kind of fabric you are trying to sew. FIRST JUST SET IT BACK TO THE FACTORY DEFAULT. When you are moving the machine it is easy to accidentally hit the tension and change it. Here is a picture of what a tension knob looks like. Good luck.

Have a Singer 11910000A and the bobber thread bunches up and makes a mess in the feet when sewing


Is it really the bobbin thread that is globbing? Check closely. Usually it is the upper thread accumulating under the fabric.

If it is in fact the bobbin thread, then the bobbin case is not threaded correctly, the bobbin case tension needs adjustment, or it is broken and needs replacement. There are web sites and YouTube videos that show how to adjust the bobbin case tension.

QUICK FIXES: Remove all the thread from the machine. Clean the area around the feed dogs and bobbin area. Oil as instructed in the owner's manual using ONLY fresh, good quality sewing machine oil (only 1-2 drops each spot). Install a brand new needle insuring it is installed correctly. Avoid using fuzzy, old, or bargain bin thread. Rethread: Be sure you raise the presser foot BEFORE threading the upper thread so it will seat properly in the tension disk--and check to make sure you are threading the machine correctly. Check that the upper tension is set properly (the factory standard is usually the halfway point between the high & low number on the selection). Test on a scrap of the fabric you wish to sew. Adjust the upper tension--either tighten to pull the upper thread toward the top of the fabric, or loosen to pull more upper thread down.

Here are some web sites that may help.

I teach sewing. A student had a problem with bunched threads on the underside of the fabric. I have tried figuring it out and every so often the thread stops looping. While sewing on the cg550 singer...


Make sure you have the correct bobbin, 66 class. Check the bobbin case. These machines use the apollo bobbin case that tend to get broken and then the thread hangs up.

No tension on my Singer 6212C sewing machine


Take the thread completly off the machine and rethread it making sure it goes thru the tension wheel properly.
FYI Loops on the bottom-- Problem is in the threadding.. Loops on the top, problem is with the bobbin.

Thread bunches up under the fabric


For normal everyday fabric, tension should be 3-5.
If it is looping on the bottom, the problem is the threading of the machine. If it loops on the top then the problem is with the bobbin.

Bobbin problems


Any time you have looping on the bottom, it is almost always related to the upper tension and not anything in the bobbin area.
A good way to troubleshoot this is to turn the machine off, blow out the upper tension disk assemblies with canned air, (the machine needs to be off because most canned air uses butane as a propellant. Butane + electricity = bad;) replace your needle, and rethread your machine. Once you've threaded it to the point where you're about to put the thread through the needle, "floss" the thread forward and backward to ensure that the thread seats correctly into the tension assemblies.
Set your tension to around 4.5 for most applications, and drop your presser foot. Give the thread a gentle tug to see if the tensions have engaged the thread, then thread the needle.

If doing this does not address the problem, you probably need to have your tensions professionally calibrated. This is also true if the needle is in fact hitting something in the bobbin area. This is usually caused by the machine's timing being out of alignment, which is not something that can be fixed at home.

Good luck,
