The bobbin case is most likely not the problem.

The problem is probably with the top thread threading, ie the thread is not seated completely in the tension disk. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the top thread.

I am a new sewer have a Brither BM-2600 what numbers on the dial do I have for just plain stitching I have tried lots of combinations but the cotton underneath is all bunching up and not sewing right


I am not sure as to your machine, are you saying a "brother" machine? If your tension is set, say on 6 and it is too tight, turn the dial one more number......to a 7 or to a five and then check again. Also, I would rethread the machine and also take the bobbin out and then put it back into the machine. A lot of times, the bobbin isn't threaded into the machine correctly and it bunches up. Also, you can't use certain thick thread on some machines.

Bobbin thread is gathering up under Neath


Sounds like birds nest or thread nests. HINT: When threading the top thread, ALWAYS have the presser foot in the RAISED position.

Birds nest under the fabric big loops of thread top side looks good...

I have a pe770 embroidery machine by brother. I had to replace the bobbin holder. Now I am getting bird nesting I up the tension on top did not help I am at a lost help


This process will do much to reduce the bird nesting you are experiencing.

Remove the top thread from your machine.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the top thread. This allows the thread to seat firmly in the tension disk.
Set the top tension to the midway point (may need to tweak this for your particular machine).
In addition: Pull the bobbin thread to the top of the fabric. Gently hold both top and bobbin thread tails in your left hand and slowly take the first couple of stitches.

Some people claim that if they manually sink the needle into the fabric before pressing on the foot control will greatly reduce bird nesting.

When I sew I have thread bunching up underneath the fabric, I've changed needle size, thread, bobbins and cleaned out around the bobbin holder. I'm frustrated and out of ideas.


Susan--
Easy peasy, once you know the problem and how to fix it. It's called "bird nesting" or "thread nesting" or what I refer to as thread "barfs."

Install a brand new needle.
Remove all the thread from the machine.
**ALWAYS RAISE** the presser foot and rethread the top thread.
Verify the top thread path is correct.
Install and thread the bobbin case, make sure it is correct.
Set the top tension to the midway point.

Now retest your machine. Birds nests gone? You may need to tweak the top tension because the factory standard changes due to age and use.

FWIW, problems appearing under the fabric are an issue of the top thread. Thread problems appearing on top of the fabric is a bobbin issue.

Bobbin issues the bobbin thread is bunching up


Check whether it is bobbin thread or the top thread accumulating under the fabric. Generally, if thread problems exist "under" the fabric, it is a top thread issue. If the problems exist "above" the fabric, it is a bobbin issue.

Sounds like a thread nesting (bird nesting) problem where the top thread is globbing under the fabric. Usually, this is caused by misthreading (confirm the thread path), the thread not seated in the tension disk (ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading!), or very loose top thread tension.

Remove the thread. Raise the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Check that the thread path is correct. Set the upper tension at the midway point between high & low numbers (this is the beginning point for tension and will most likely need to be tweaked for your particular machine).

Fashion Mate 248. The top stitch is fine but will gather too much under the material. Wraps around the bobbin holder and tangle up into the bobbin thread. Does anybody know whats going on?


That is what is referred to as bird nesting or thread nesting. It usually results from mis-threading, the thread not being fully seated in the tension disk, or the tension set too loose. (I have a machine that does this frequently because the thread "jumps" out of the take up lever when sewing fast--instant thread mess.)

Remove the thread from the machine. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Make sure the thread path is correct. Set the upper tension to the midway point between high & low number. (You will probably need to tweak the upper tension because every machine differs over time, but the midway point is the factory standard setting.)

While you are at it, check to make sure the bobbin is loaded and threaded correctly in the bobbin case.

If you continue to have issues, you may need to take it for service.
