The thread timing on your machine is off. It needs to be adjusted by a professional.

SOURCE: bottom of stitch is bunched with alot of thread and machine jams

Try these time savers:
Test your thread quality to start, thread your machine and LIFT the presser foot (this opens the tension disks). Pull your top thread straight back. If you feel no tension no mater how much thread you pull, your thread is good. If that your machine passes that test, then let me know, we can go to step 2. If not, try different spool of thread, same test until you get a smooth pull (tip: always check your thread this way when you thread your machine)
Step 2:
Pull on your threaded bobbin thread while it’s in the machine. Does it pull smooth and even? If so, go to step 3. If not, try a new bobbin (bobbins get bent or distorted if wound too tight).
Clean thoroughly in the hook and bobbin case area and oil 1-2 drop is all.

Make sure that there is tension on the thread when you have passed it through the tension unit, by making sure the presser foot is down, and then gently pulling the thread to feel tension. If there is no tension, as seems to be the case, check the tension discs inside the unit to make sure that there is no debris stopping them from closing.

SOURCE: Jamming brand new machine

the tension on the bobbin case needs to be adjusted to needle size and type of fabric the medium fabrics usually use a size 11, light fabrics need a size 9 and heavy like ( corduroy denim or upholstery fabric needs a 14 or 16 Heavy fabrics need a little less tension on the top side so it will feed properly just play with it until it looks good on a scrap of the same fabric

My new Singer machine ("Curvy") purchased last week (3/2014) has a page on stretch stitches. The way the book is written, it lists Straight Stretch Stitch on the same page as Ric Rac, HOneycomb, and...


A zig-zag is also a stretch stitch. Usually, a "built-in" stretch stitch will stitch forward a couple and then stitch backward and then stitch forward again (time consuming and uses a lot of thread--but suitable if that's what you want). Whatever you are sewing, whether it is a seam or finished raw edge and the fabric is stretch, you will need to use a stretch or zig-zag. A straight stitch will pop the threads as soon as the fabric has to give.

You can test your stitches on some scrap fabric and see what looks best.

An Over-edge stitch is just that, just a stitch over the fabric edge. It probably would not be suitable for sewing a seam.

Sews fine on cotton, but skips on synthetic stretch cloth. Manual doesn't really offer a suggestion.


Needs to be a ball point needle for stretch fabric, sounds like you are using universal sharp needle. Stretch fabrics require ball point to push between the fibres, also, a slight zig zag stitch is more durable as when you stretch the garment during wear a straight stitch will often break, need some elasticity in the seams. Some machines have a stretch stitch too.

Which stitch are you using?

To check thread tension for straight stitches, use different colors of thread in your top thread and bobbin. If the top thread shows on the bottom of the fabric, turn the dial counter-clockwise (towards a lower number). If the bottom thread shows on the top, turn the dial clockwise. Do not adjust the tension too much (for example, go from 2 to 2.5 if increasing the tension) at a time; test another set of stitches. Alternatively, you can adjust the bobbin tension in the reverse directions. However, it's very easy to damage the set screw in the bobbin case so do this as a last resort. Since this is a vertical bobbin case, put the bobbin in and hold onto the thread. If the thread moves when you dangle the bobbin case, tighten the screw. Loosen the screw if the thread doesn't pull out of the bobbin when you hold the unit.

For zig-zag decorative stitches lower the tension until the puckering stops. Usually the top thread will show on the bottom of the fabric.

If the tension is not changing when you turn the dial, make sure that the presser foot is down. The sewing machine may need repair. The tension mechanism depends on a spring and that can break. See the Singer site for a parts breakdown and contact your Singer dealer for the parts.

If the top and bottom fabric are not moving at the same rate, you can get a different type of puckering. You may want to get an even feed foot if there are several layers of fabric.

The manual for the 3116 is available from Singer: http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/438_3116.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Bobbin thread is bunched up when sewing straight stitch


If you're getting the bunching of thread on the bottom of your fabric, make sure that you have the machine threaded properly on top. If you pull the thread through the needle with the foot up, you feel little or no resistance. If you put the foot down, the thread should become harder to pull and the needle will bow. If this doesn't happen, the upper tension is not working correctly or is too loose.

If the thread bunches up on the bottom sometimes it is the bobbin tension. You can remove the bobbin housing and may notice a screw. This screw "tensions" the tab where the thread goes through, creating tension on the thread. Another thing to check if the machine is on a "loose/stretch" stitch setting, this will allow the elastic to freely expand and contract. You may need to also adjust the "speed" of the feed teeth, to compensate for the slack. Often there is "stray thread" in or around the bobbin, which can cause problems, One of these may be the solution, Im being general in my information.

Make sure that you use the F foot when using decorative stitches.

The stitch balance my be off. Remove the accessory bin and you will see a large plastic screw with a + and a - and an arrow. Using a coin, turn the arrow to the center and test. Turn the arrow towards the + to stretch the pattern out.

If this doesn't work, it must me calibrated internally and requires an experience hand.

Can't get a neat straight and stretch stitch underneath


Sounds like a bottom tension problem, to be sure I would have to have a look, I would suggest you have it looked at. Not sure about the materials you are sewing and have serious doubts as to whether the machine you are using is up for the job and will give you a satisfactory finish. It is possible a "walking foot" machine is what you need.
