Question about Brother Sewing Machines
The top of fabric has loops. I have rethreaded, new bobbin, new needle, adjusted tension dial both ways, still having probme.
Ok, please don't take this the wrong way, but I only mention it because this happened to me: are you sure you're threading the machine correctly? I've had mine for two years and finally realized the other day that I was passing the thread behind the tension disk when it should have been in FRONT of the tension disk. I didn't have tension problems all the time when it was misthreaded, which is why I guess I never realized I was doing it incorrectly. One other possibility: if the thread spool is vertical, trying standing it up (you may need to rig something with a coffee cup and some safety pins taped to the machine, but most machines provide both vertical and horizontal spool capabilities); if it's horizontal, try moving it to a vertical position. Some threads don't care which direction they are; others are VERY finicky about this.
