Question about Brother PE-150V Computerized Sewing Machine

Brother PE-150V bobbin thread

All of a sudden, whenever I attempt to embroider, the bobbin thread completely covers the upper thread on the top of the embroidery. I tried adjusting the upper thread tension, but it doesn't seem to make any difference whether the tension is on 0 or 9. I changed the bobbin thread to a contrasting color so I could see what was going on. The only thread visible on top and bottom is the bobbin thread.

Thanks!

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.

make sure to use every thread guide-this is improtant for the
thread tension
make sure the bobbin is turned correctly in the bobbin case

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,

Robbie

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.
