Question about Husqvarna Designer I

1 Answer

Machine embroidery When using a standard, sulky or gutterman bobbin thread it shows on the topside. If I use a Janome, for instance, bobbin thread which looks thinner that's ok. I am sure this is a new problem.

    Thanks for trying but I did use proper bobbin thread, sulky.

    Also the pre wound ones show through to the topside too.

    I am having the same problem with my Brother SE350 machine. It doesn't do it all the time, though. I was wondering if the stabilizing material I am using might be too thin..????

You should always use proper Bobbin Thread for embroidery - not a bobbin wound from regular dressmaking thread. You are right, the special bobbin thread is thinner so that the embroidery thread will be pulled to the underside and you get a nice shiny embroidery on top with no bobbin showing through. Wind yourself 6 or more bobbins at a time of bobbin thread to always have some on hand, or buy the pre-wound L size ones.
All embroidery machines - no matter what brand - recommend using bobbin thread for embroidery. It is readily available at all sewing stores, probably even Spotlight would carry some. If you get stuck for a supply, try overlocker thread.

    Next thing to look at then is making sure that the bobbin thread is "snapped" into the tension slot in the bobbin case. You should hear a click as it goes in. I'm guessing you have also re-threaded the upper thread, making sure it is properly in the tension disks. Try loosening the upper tension in the SET menu (lower number) but this would only be a temporary workaround.
    Floss out the bobbin tension spring with two or three threads twisted together, and run them through the tension as one - pull back and forth a bit to dislodge any fluff that might be in there.
    You can tighten up the bobbin tension. Take bobbin case out - follow instructions in manual - and turn the screw located outside where the tension metal piece is. Imagine the screw is a clock - right to tighten, left to loosen - and turn no more than 15 minutes. Probably 5 or 10 minutes is best to start with.

Why doesn't the bobbin thread low message show (although setting on 2) and machine doesn't stop when no bobbin thread?


Um, why would the technician only do half the job???

Could be that the bobbin sensor is dirty. Most likely covered with lint or loose thread.

My brother pe770 is allowing bobbin thread to show on top sporadically which makes the stitching look like it is speckled with white. I have adjusted tension..cleaned and changed everything.


Shelia,

when sewing these parts of the design, (small stitches? ) load your bobbin with the same top thread. Just match the top thread color, and done! No more white bobbin thread in the topside of your designs.

Thread keeps breaking


Have you checked any edge the thread might contact for knicks which should be files or sanded down? Also, I had to replace my bobbin case after a number of years as it had kind of stretched out and allowed my bobbin to pop around and consequently broke many threads.

The bobbin thread is sewing loose - after sewing you can just pull the thread out. Stitches are uneven in length some short some long.


Tighten the bobbin thread a little and loosen the top thread tension a little. A correctly tensioned embroidery machine will show a little less than 1/3 of the top thread color and 2/3 of the bobbin thread on the bottom side of the embroidered piece. You may have to play with it some so use scrap material and dark top thread until you get your adjustment made.

I have a Kenmore 19606, I have never own a machine that does embroidery stitches, the pattern of the stitches shows on the wrong side of the fabric not the right side. Is this suppose to happen? If not how...


Not sure if you are doing embroidery w /a hoop and all, which I don't do but I have lots of decorative stiches . Ytp lacing some tear away interfacing below the fabric you are going to sew. Most stitches come out top to bottom. Say I have an alligator option. Image will be about 1 1/2 inch , Try it on a piece of scrap fabric to start. I used muslin and the tear away bnacking to stabilize the design on lettering and patters.Also use good thread. I like Guttermans. Coat and Clark / Sulky are very fine and snag and tear easily. Good luck. Keep trying. The design you sew will show on both sides , so if you do not want that you will have to add another level of fabric to the backside after completing the design. Hope that makes sense.

Problem with Brother Quattro


This is an Embroidery machine. Use a thicker thread if only sewing. If doing embroidery, check your hoop for proper size, and make it tight holding the material.

Bobbin thread shows through fabric ALOT


When this happens you need to adjust the tension down. If it's set at a default of 4 move it down to 3.5 or even down to 3 sew a bit check. Certain threads do this more (Sulky) on the brother than others (Maderia), but the black lettering in the embroidery feature always seems to need adjusted. The tension adjustment is the same for sewing or embroidery mode.

Stiching


It's very possible the bobbin is in upside down and the thread is coming out of the lower tension. Pull on the thread and the bobbin should turn counter clockwise if it is correct . If it turns clockwise, flip the bobbin over , put the thread through the lower tension and try it again. The topside stitch is loose either because the lower tension is loose(or non-existent) or the top thread is too tight.
