Question about Sewing Machines
Your thread tension needs adjustment.
Most likely it is the lower thread tension (not the upper thread tensioner).
When sewing very thin or very heavy material - it is required to adjust the lower tension as well.
To regulate the lower thread tension - turn the small screw on the tension spring of the bobbin case with a small screwdriver.
To increase tension - turn it clockwise SLIGHTLY.
