Try adjusting the tension. It sounds like the bobbin thread is too loose or the bobbin is not in correctly. Try taking the bobbin out and turning it around and putting it back. When you hold the bobbin in the fingers of your left hand and you pull the thread out with your right hand the bobbin should be turning clockwise. If the nesting persists, try ajusting the tension one way and then the other to see which seems to help. Hope this helps!

Singer 5430C bobbins thread always loopy


"Birdnesting" occurs when there is no tension on the needle thread to pull the bobbin thread. This is easily corrected by rethreading the machine, following the threading path carefully and making sure the thread is fully engaged in the tension mechanism.

I was sewing along fine and then all of a sudden my thread started "birdnesting" I have rethreaded the machine as well as the bobbin. It works great on a practice run but as soon as I go back to my project...


Yes, VERY frustrating! When this has happened to me it has always turned out to be a tiny bit of thread caught in the bobbin assembly. I've rethreaded and rethreaded but could only solve the problem by taking the bobbin assembly apart and finding and removing the caught thread. I use a bright flashlight to help find the caught threads.

Good luck and I sure hope this helps!

Keeps "birdnesting", besides rethreading, how do I fix?


when you have bunching on the bottom, you have a problem with the top thread: no tension. (and visa versa) Make sure the thread runs through the tension discs, these discs are activated when you put the presser foot down, so you want to thread the machine with the foot up, also feel if there no burrs, hooks, or whatever, so your top thread comes smooth off the spool, no jerking.

I have a singer-inspiration machine and it appears that the thread keeps getting caught up in the bobbin area so my thread birdnests. I am new to sewing and this is a new machine.
