Question about Sewing Machines
The bobbin only has one screw. How do I make it tight? The stitch is completely loose in the bottom, and the machine is new (I had finished a project the day before, it was working fine)
Normally loose bottom stitches indicate a problem with the needle thread tension not the bobbin. try removing top thread completely and then rethread machine with presser foot down, if you do it with foot raised auto tension will not function

You are adjusting the bobbin the wrong way, first make sure the top tension is about 4 or 5, slacken the bobbin tension off about a quarter of a turn at a time until you can just pul;l the thread through with slight resistence
