Question about Brother XL-2230 Mechanical Sewing Machine
I've just bought a Brother XL2230 sewing machine (I'm a beginner, but have tried to make sure I've read the manual etc before setting it up). The problem is that I can't get the thread tension right - it's either too loose or too tight on the top, even in the same line of stitches. I am using Gutermann thread, which I thought was quite good and which I bought in the fabric shop, and the needle is the one that came with the machine so should be brand new. The fabric I'm using is like curtain fabric, so a bit heavier than cotton, but not as heave as canvas or denim.
Help! I'm really trying to keep enthusiastic about my new purchase, but it's driving me nuts!
