Question about Bernina Sewing Machines
It seems the presser foot is pulling in the fabric.It will sew flat on another stitch setting(#7)At this rate I will have shares in a thread company!The needle size is 12,schmetz 130/705H universal.The fabric is a glazed cotton& thread Gutermann 100% polyester.I have tried the 100% cotton but its too thick for the fabric on a single layer.Any suggestions would be well received...Yj
The fabric is tunneling? The pleat is forming the length of the line of stitches? http://crazylittleprojects.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/Z4.jpg Loosen the upper thread tension and increase the presser foot pressure and/or choose a flat soled foot, not an embroidery foot and/or add paper or other stabilizer on top of the fabric.
Or if the stitches are gathering up as you sew, go with it... that's what you're going to be doing anyhow, right? You can increase the amount of gathering by parking your thumb or forefinger hard against the needle plate behind the presser foot and allowing the fabric to pile up--- this is called "crimping" or "ease plus" and is commonly used for easing princess seams or sleeve heads. If it eases too much, clip the seam threads here and there and pat the fabric back out a little flatter, till it fits.
PS: If you like Gutermann poly threads, check the prices for Mara 100 at Wawak.com or similar pro sites. At Joann Fabric prices, you get an $8 spool of thread for $2.50 or less. Good stuff.

Check your tension disks, with your presser foot up, and the tension dial on zero. Sometimes a piece of cotton breaks off between the tension disks and then prevents the disks to work properly. Also make sure when you thread the machine, the thread does go through the disks and over the take up lever. After you threaded the machine, before putting the thread through the eye of the needle, lower the presser foot and while pulling on the thread with your left hand, increase the tension with your right hand. Do it slowly and you should feel in difference in tension. If this is the case, your machine should work fine.

SOURCE: i have an 1130 bernina
The 1130 does not have a consumer adjustable presser foot. Check to be sure you are using the correct presser foot .Some feet are slightly different in height which is how the pressure is regulated. If this is not your problem it will need to be seen by a technician.

SOURCE: irregular stitches
If you mean irregular length it may be the arm that holds the feed teeth ha sworked loose slightly to see if this is it the faster you go on a max stitch length the shorter it gets. If this is the case tilt the machine head back and see were the arm is fixed at the rear sholud be 2 screws that go on to a long arm running the length of the machine and make sure these are tight. This should help.

SOURCE: zig zag stitches are not holding
When ever a machine is jamming up the bobbin thread, it is a result of your top tension. It is either set to low (under 4), or the thread has come out of the take-up lever. Check your threading, fromt he spool pin, down to 2 and up to 3. Three is the take up lever. From the take-up lever down to 4. Set the thread behind the thread guide and thread the needle form front to back. Low quailtu thread 9dual duty or all purpose) can also create this problem.
