Rethread the bottom, put more thread in, and make sure you have the right tension.

Electric white rotary sewing machine


Confused... How does a sewing machine have a "mn looper?" Sewing machines have a bobbin. A serger has a looper. Perhaps knowing the model would be helpful.

New machine, new needles, 100% cotton, yet sewing 6 consistently results in about an inch, here and there, of loose stitches. Machine is also loud, clanking-type noise.


you do not mention the name and model number of the sewing machine or serger,, you do not say if it's the loose stitches are on the top of the fabric or bottom,, try adjusting the top thread tension and see if that helps,, you might also consider taking the machine back and getting another,, remember before you sew when threading, lift the presser foot up to its highest position before threading

Is there a Janome service and repair place in Hua Hin or Cha-am?


sometimes the problem is caused by the top and bottom thread are not the same. for example: the top and bottom thread should both be cotton or polyester, not cotton and polyester mixed together. I hope this works for you.

I am sewing a cotton piece of fabric for a dress and i do not know how to set the tension for cotton


The tension for cotton is set the same way tension is set for any fabric:

1. The thread should pull freely with a small resistance before/after it goes through the needle, on many machines that's half way on the tension adjustment.

2. The bobbin thread when dangled by the thread with the bobbin inside the case should drop down a bit when slightly flicking your wrist like you do with a yo-yo. If it reels out to the floor the tension is too loose. If it doesn't drop at all it is too tight.

3. Now make sure you use the right type of needle. For cotton you want a "sharp" and for reg. weight cotton about a size 10 maybe 12.

Now take a piece of strap cotton material like you're going to sew a seem and sew with a wide zig zag. Example the top side and then the bottom. They should appear identical, flat with needle holes at each side where the thread disappears to the other side. You should see no loop where the threads over lap each other and the material should not be puckering in the middle.

If that is not what you see then think this way:

The TOP side of the stitch is effected by the BOTTOM thread. the bobbin tension.
The BOTTOM side of the stitch is effected by the TOP /needle tension.

Adjust the responding tensions until the stitch looks the same on both sides. Now you are ready to sew your cotton! :)

Retiming Mylock Serger 234D


Ooh, I've heard it is difficult timing a serger because there's more involved than a sewing machine.

You can try looking at videos and web sites:

Serger


As long as this is a sewing machine and not a serger, I don't know about them. I only tinker on my own. Remove the bottom. There is a rod running along the length of the machine. it needs to be turned 180 degrees. You may need to retime the machine.
