Thread your machine with the presser
foot UP. The disks that control the tension (thread goes through
them) are tightened up if the foot is down.
Change the machine tension with the
presser foot DOWN. Because the disks won't be engaged (see above)
if the foot is up, the disks won't move.
Start at the middle setting, 3. Go up
to tighten, decrease to loosen. Each machine is different, even 2
different machines of the same model. The best thing to do is start
at 3 and use a different color in the top and bobbin thread so you
can easily see what changes to the tension do to your stitches.
Now use a straight stitch a sew 3 or so
inches. Take a look at the top and bottom of the fabric. You don't
want to see any (or at least not much) of the other color showing
from the other side.
Loops on the bottom of the fabric means
you need to tighten (increase) your top tension. If you're stitches
on the bottom are causing puckering, then you need to loosen you're
top tension. For the most part, you really don't want to touch your
bobbin tension-leave that to a repair technician. The factory setting
shouldn't be touched except by someone who really knows what
Keep sewing a few inches at a time until you have the results you want. Now you're tension is where you need it!
