New needle and make sure it is the right sized needle for the fabric that you are sewing. If silky satin then use a size 70 or even 60 needle sharp. If microfibre then there are Schmetz needles called microtec that are perfect for this.
Also try shortening the stitch length a little. You may still need to finesse the tension a bit. I think this is a front loading bobbin machine so you might try adjusting the tension on the bobbin holder a little bit. It is hard with these as there is no "0' marking to set it to, its just trial and testing.
Also, are you pinning across the seam line at about 3 inch intervals?
If there is still some puckering happening, then perhaps, stop at the end of the seam with the needle in the work, and ease the fabric along the stitching line a bit to smooth out the seam, then do the reversing stitches at the end to lock off the seam.
Also press, press, press each seam. Always press on top of the seam, turn it over and press the underside of the seam, then lie right side down on the ironing board and press the seam allowances open. This sets the stitches into the fabric and finishes off the seam appearance. I always sew with the ironing press on beside me.
You may still be unhappy with the seam result after doing all this - if you enjoy sewing then consider shopping for a higher quality machine - there is a difference in stitching quality between a $400 and $2,000 machine. You could always take a piece of your fabric to a sewing dealer near you and test sew on a European machine, you should see a difference in the stitching quality.
