Question about Elna 1010
I am having problems with loops on the back side of the fabric. This has occured with a variety of fabrics. Right now I am working with a basic 100% cotton, standard thread. I am using the B stich and a 2 length. I have tried adjusting the tension and changed needles. I also have noticed the bobbin gets tangled quite a bit.
I have a 26 year old Elna and this is the only weakness it has. Before sewing, try this. Turn the wheel manually and watch the upper thread pick up the bobbin thread. Pull both back to the left. Make sure they are plenty long. This helps me prevent the tangling in the dogfeed. My Elna has a universal tension on the bottom and I haven't ever had a problem with it unless the top tension is too tight.
