Question about Sewing Machines
What needs to be adjusted? First of all make sure you have it threaded correctly. There are a lot more holes and threading points than an household sewing machine. If it is the tension that needs adjustment you will see the tension dial just above the needle slightly to the left. It's the grey knob. Turn it clockwise to tighten the tension. Turn it counter clockwise to loosen it. Thread with two different colors of thread, one color in the bobbin, another color for the spool. Sew a line of stitching...if you see the top spool thread pulling to the underside then you will need to tighten the tension. If the bobbin thread is pulling to the top side then you will need to loosen the tension. If you want to adjust the stitch length then turn the dial that has numbers on it. #2 is pretty small stitches, I use #3 for most sewing and #4 and 5 for topstitching or basting. Good Luck! Hopes this helps.
