Bobbin thread for machine embroidery is recommended. It is usually 60 weight.

Fixing the problem of birdnesting


Birdnesting is a common but very frustrating problem that can be resolved easily once you know where the problem originates. Remember, if the birdnesting occurs on the underside of the fabric, the problem originates with the upper thread. If it shows on the top of the fabric, the problem is the bobbin.

Very often, the machine is not threaded correctly. Remove all the thread from the machine. Check there are no loose threads or lint stuck anywhere in the machine. Oil as instructed in the manual.

Install a brand new needle! The needle should be suitable for the thread and fabric you are using. All About Needles

ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread the upper thread. Verify the path is correct.

Check that the bobbin is installed and threaded properly.

Pull the bobbin thread to the top of the fabric.
How and Why to Bring up the Bobbin Thread

Set the upper tension to the midway point.

While holding both thread tails lightly in your left hand, begin sewing slowly.

My bobbin thread continues to bunch up on the back of the fabric.. How can I fix this?


Is it really the bobbin thread that is globbing? Check closely. Usually it is the upper thread accumulating under the fabric.

If it is in fact the bobbin thread, then the bobbin case is not threaded correctly, the bobbin case tension needs adjustment, or it is broken and needs replacement. There are web sites and YouTube videos that show how to adjust the bobbin case tension.

QUICK FIXES: Remove all the thread from the machine. Clean the area around the feed dogs and bobbin area. Oil as instructed in the owner's manual using ONLY fresh, good quality sewing machine oil (only 1-2 drops each spot). Install a brand new needle insuring it is installed correctly. Avoid using fuzzy, old, or bargain bin thread. Rethread: Be sure you raise the presser foot BEFORE threading the upper thread so it will seat properly in the tension disk--and check to make sure you are threading the machine correctly. Check that the upper tension is set properly (the factory standard is usually the halfway point between the high & low number on the selection). Test on a scrap of the fabric you wish to sew. Adjust the upper tension--either tighten to pull the upper thread toward the top of the fabric, or loosen to pull more upper thread down.

Here are some web sites that may help.

The thread gets caught up in bobbin area


This mess is commonly referred to as a bird's nest or 'birdnesting' and it's usually caused by incorrect top tension and that's often caused by the top thread not in the correct path. (For me, I occasionally forget to thread through the take-up lever.) A damaged needle can also cause birdnesting.

The thread is birdnestting where the bobbin is


Birdnesting can be corrected by adjusting the bobbin tension lower. You need to check for threads stuck in the bobbin tension and clean them out. The thread should feed out of the bobbin tension with a small amount of tension. Make sure your bobbin is rotating the right direction; probably counter clockwise. Adjust the top to three and give it a try. You may need to make a small adjustment on the top tension. Your goal is to have the bottom and top tension equal just like a tug of war.

Top thread wraps around bobbin


Is it birdnesting under the bottom or it is actually getting tangled inside the bobbin case? I've had my machine for almost a year and don't think I've had your exact issue. Sometimes, when you do a stich over a already stitched portion, you may have a problem with the bobbin and I just generally stop and start it again. It is important that you use the correct needle and also use a good embroidery thread and stablizer. Another thing suggested is changing the needle after about every 5 designs. Also, check the bobbin case to make sure there's no fuzzies caught in it. I use "canned air" like you use on computer keyboards. I also only use 40 weight emboidery thread for the top and actual bobbin thread for the bottom. Other threads can really jam everything up. So it's been trial and error to find the right combinations. Good Luck!

Tangled bobbin thread


Okay. I had this problem too. try taking the bobbin casing out. I had a bit of thread lintg caught in a remote area of the under-plate area. Blow it out with canned air and oil your machine. That should help. It fixed mine.
