Remove the upper thread. Then RAISE the presser foot and re-thread from the beginning. Verify the thread path is correct. Set the upper tension to the midway point and retest your machine. You may need to tweak the upper tension. For garment or regular sewing, the tension is correct when both threads meet in the middle of the fabric, however embroidery sometimes requires the upper thread to be a bit looser so the bobbin thread will not appear on the top of the fabric.

Tighten tension on top of singer quantum future? Thread makes loose loops on top of fabric.


from what I can see with limited pictures you just pull the thread deeper into the upper tension disks .

Bottom thread is looping on top of fabric on my Singer Futura 400 machine


Thread looping can also be caused by the use of adhesive stabilizers. During embroidery, your needle can gum up. Try floating a sheet of wax paper on the bottom to see if that might be the cause (along with the above solutions, of course).

I bought the SINGER FUTURA XL400 in august. It sews,monograms an embroiders. Sews like a dream with no issues. The monogramming part has me at my wits end. It skips stiches, leaves big loops an looks bad...


Be sure to install a brand new sharp needle before sewing. Check that the needle, thread, and fabric are compatible. An embroidery needle or top stitch needle may help.

When threading the top thread, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot before threading to insure the thread seats in the tension disk.

I have a Singer 3140, and I have misplaced the book. I need to adjust the tension so that the threads are balanced, but have forgotten the correct procedure.


Get some scrap of the fabric you'll use.

Remember this phrase. Loops on bottom top tension too loose. Loops on top... top tension too tight. (or bobbin tension too loose)

In your case you need to loosen the top tension until you start to see loops on the bottom... then tighten it slightly.


Here's a manual for future reference

My bobbin thread keeps coming to the top of my fabric during embroidering on my Singer Futura CE350, I've tried bobbin embroidery thread, regular embroidery thread and clear nylon thread, I've tried...


With the embroidering, some of the bobbin thread is SUPPOSED to show on the top of your embroidery-the machine isn't doing anything incorrectly. You'll need to thread your bobbin with the same thread as you are using with the top. I had the same "problem" when I first got the machine and took it to a wonderful local technician whose helped me with a lot of things who informed me that this is perfectly normal on embroidery machines.

I have a Singer Futura CE-100. I have had it for 3 years but have not used it much because I can't get the tension correct. I have had it repaired/maintained twice most recently this week. I can now sew on...


Sad to say you might have to do an indept check. Like start with a small peice of fabric - start with the highest bobbin tension and go to the lowest - leaving the top tension the same. Write all the findings. Then do it all again with the next top tension. Keep your 'good' findings in a little notepad in your sewing box. Then you will have it all ready for any other project. Good luck!
