Question about Sewing Machines
Pfaff Select 4.0 has looping on bottom of fabric. Have re-threaded 50 times. Lost half a spool of thread. Not picking up bobbin thread at all. Changed tension, changed it back. Trying to free motion quilt. Frustrated beyond belief.
Make sure your are lowering the pressure foot first before you start sewing. With the free motion foot, you still have to lower the pressure foot, this allows tension to be put on the top thread and allows the foot to work properly (when the needle goes down so should the foot and when the needle comes up it should lift the foot up.)
Also make sure your tensions are in a middle setting and that you are threading the machine with the pressure foot up.
The way to insure you will not get your problem is with the foot up, you should be able to pull the thread easily right before the eye of the needle and when you put the foot down you should then feel a fair bit of tension on the top thread.
hope that helps :)
