Pulls bobbin thread through when embroidering smaller sized letters


Try loosening the top tension a little. When doing embroidery, it is usually a good idea to set the upper tension a bit looser to keep more of the thread on the underside of the fabric.

Why is my bobbin thread is showing while embroidering


Your tension on top can be loosened. If this causes your stitch to be too loose then tighten your bobbin tension. Just think of the top and bottom tensions as a tug of war. They must be even to get the stitch in the middle of the material.

I have used my Embroidery machine for a couple of years and have not near mastered it, My thread is too loose, then at the same time the bobbin thread is pulled through to the top. Yes the bird nest is...


When you're embroidering, ALWAYS have the tension set on "E." Unfortunately with a Singer, you will always have bobbin thread pulling thru to the top-I found this out from a technician a few years ago who also serviced Vikings and Husqvarna's. He went through a lot to show and explain it to me, but suffice it to say that with a Singer you need to use the same thread in the bobbin as on top when you're embroidering-it's simply a flaw with their machines.

The bird's nest could be a number of problems, but first we need to be sure you're setting your tension set on "E". If you are, leave me a comment back and we'll go through some specific steps to take about the bobbin. Otherwise, correct you're tension setting and see if that corrects the bird's nest problem. If not, again, leave me another comment back and leave me any details you can as to the type of material your embroidering on, the thread you're using, etc. It may seem like a pain, but you'd be surprised how fussy the littlest thing can be. I check in daily, so I'll get back to you within 24 hours. I've used my CE100 for 4 years and have mastered it quite well, so I feel confident that I'll be able to help you.

I HAVE A BROTHER ULT2003D SEWING/EMBRODERY MACHINE IT CAME WITH NO MANNUAL IM ABOUT TO EMB. A 100% POLYESTER SHIRT AND DONT NO WHAT TENTION TO SET IT ON THANK YOU C.C.


I would try embroidering on a scrap of like material to get the tension you want. My Brother (different model) manual doesn't say any specific tension setting for embroidering but just says to set the tension right for the fabric to be worked. If the fabric is stretchy, I suggest using a little looser tension than say cotton, just make sure it doesn't pucker the fabric.

Viking 1+--Thread breaks during embroidery


If the thread will not run through the tension mech on 0 then it is probably stuck on a tight setting. It can be a bit complicated but the tension mech can be stripped/cleaned/free'd up. Another possible cause is the path of the thread from the spool to the needle any deviation from the correct path increases the tension at the needle. If you do not know the history of the machine I would suggest a thorough clean and service.

check to be sure machine is being threaded correctly first, then when pressure foot is lowered pull thread and see if you are getting tension, if not assembly is bad
