Mile is a unit of length. Knot is a unit of speed, equivalent to one nautical mile per hour.
If you're asking which is longer, a statue mile or a nautical mile, then the answer is a nautical mile. A statue mile is 5280 feet. A nautical mile is about about 6076 feet.

My machine seems to jump alot and the underneath stitches are just tying itself into lots of knots.

Is it just the bobbin that is jumping? This will happen if you have the bobbin in upside down. Both sides look the same, but you want to make sure the bobbin will turn in the same direction as the little arrow on the metal right by the bobbin slot. If you goof, the bobbin will keep popping up and down and you'll get knots.

I can't find the tension adjusting spring on my brother 2600i

  • 3Find the position of the knots.
  • 4Tighten the tension and "pull the knots up" if the knots appear on the bottom side of the sewn seam.
  • 5Loosen the tension and "drop the knots down" if the knots are on the top surface.
  • 6Sew a test on the fabric you will be using. Tensions often have to be adjusted when changing fabric types and weights.
  • 7Continue adjusting the tension and inspecting the seam until your seam is balanced.

    I can not get the bobben to thread right and when I sew it knots up on the bottom side of the stitech

    the knots on the bottom are caused by the top thread not being in the tension disc or something in the discs( thread , fuss etc)

    Hi, my sewing machine is making a ball of thread under the material we'resewing i was told i might need to adjust the tension i don't have the manual booklet.

    Try adjusting the numbered knob on your machine...this is your tension control. If you have knots on the underside of your fabric you want to turn this knob to a higher number until the knots dissapear.
