If you tighten up your needle thread, reduce the tension of the needle thread.
For embroidery, and zig-zag, and because the needle makes side movements, it needs more needle thread.
So try to keep you needle thread not very tight,
and tight up your bobbin case tension more, so that the two threads meet under the meterial.

My brother pe150 embroidery machine does not pick up bottom thread and wont sew

try changing the needle
rethread the machine--use every thread guide
make sure the bobbin is not warped
make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly in the case
it's very possible that the timing of the machine is off & the machine would need to be checked at a sewing machine shop

How do you change the timing on brother pe150 as it wont pick up bottom thread

Full details on how to adjust the timing appear here in my Brother PE150 blog. You will need a few basic tools including the stubby screwdriver that came with your machine.

Brother pe150 won't pick up bobbin thread

Hi. This may sound silly, but the most likely reason the upper thread doesn't pick up the bobbin thread is that the needle is in backwards. (Sounds silly, but it's true!)

Needle shanks have a flat side and that flat side has to go in a particular way for your machine. With most modern machines, the flat side goes to the rear, facing away from you. Check your manual to be sure.

The second most likely reason is that your needle may be bent. Check that your needle is straight (or just use a new one).

Hope this helps!

Happy Sewing,

Bobbin thread shows through fabric ALOT

When this happens you need to adjust the tension down. If it's set at a default of 4 move it down to 3.5 or even down to 3 sew a bit check. Certain threads do this more (Sulky) on the brother than others (Maderia), but the black lettering in the embroidery feature always seems to need adjusted. The tension adjustment is the same for sewing or embroidery mode.

You need to adjust your top tension and maybe your bottom tension ( the little screw on the bobbin cover) Also check your needle and make sure it's straight.
