A lot depends upon what you're sewing on, thread, needle, etc. But here are some basics for this problem:
1. Clean your machine! The most common cause of many sewing problems is smutz caught in the bobbin area or tensioning disks.
2. Change your needle and be sure it's the right weight and type for what you're doing. Using a heavyweight needle on lightweight fabric or a 'sharps' needle on knits or an old needle are common causes of puckering.
3. Make sure the thread you're using is appropriate for the fabric and needle. Using light thread on heavy fabric or vice versa can cause puckering as well.
4. Check your tensioning, both upper and bobbin.
5. Take it in and have the timing checked.
