Question about Sewing Machines
The thread gets all bunched up on the underside of the material. I tried rewinding the bobbin and changing the needle. I probably just bumped a lever or dial the wrong way, but I am not sure. this happened in the middle of sewing a seam.
Take the thread off the top of your machine and rethread it. Anytime a sewing machine bunches up the thread on the bottom the cause is the top thread. Make sure the tension dial is on "5". After you thread the machine, put the pressure foot down,(like its resting on fabric, but not on the thread), and pull the thread towards the back of the machine. It should be somewhat tight. The needle should "bow" slightly before the thread comes through the needle.

Thread will ALWAYS bunch if the needle is blunt. even if unsure put in a fresh one in and make sure you have the correct thread for fabrics.
