Question about Singer 3116 Simple
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.
