Question about Sewing Machines
Well, i recently bought a sewing machine, yay! but I'm having problems with it T_T And I can't find the manual in your fix it section and I really don't want to buy a manual...I only have 11 buckaroos in my bank acc and I was really looking forward to renewing my subscription to seventeen mag. >_<;;
Sorry for rambling. Here is the problem, my sewing machine keeps on spurting a LOT of thread when I try to sew. Like, when I was trying to sew a skirt it just made a big ball of thread, tangled, on the spot where it was supposed to sew. Why? Please help me ///>_// Arigatou!
Make sure your machine is set to feed material. There may be a switch or knob somewhere on your machine to lower the "feed dogs" (the little metal teeth that pull the material through the machine). If they are down, the material won't feed so the machine will sew in place. More likely, since its knotting on the bottom, your machine is probably not threaded correctly. Rethread the machine, and try again.
Yes, the thread on the bottom IS the needle thread.

Upper and bobbin tension should be adjusted just right.

I am a 71-year old great grandmother who has been sewing for years. When my sewing machine knots on the bottom, it usually the bobbin. Rethread the bobbin and try again!
