Brother SE400 :When I pull on the fabric's sewn part one of the threads slides back and forth. I can then pull on one of the threads-it slides out and the other thread is easily lifted up. How to fix?


Your stitches may be too far apart. But, most likely the issue is that the tensions are not correct. If one thread lays in a smooth straight line on the fabric, the other thread tension is too loose, ie the bobbin thread lays on the fabric and the top thread is going all the way through the fabric and shows on the bobbin side, then the top tension needs to be tightened. The tensions are correct when both threads meet in the middle of the fabric.

What number is satin stitch on Piaf quilt expressions 4.0


A satin stitch is simply a zig-zag stitch that is shortened enough so the threads lay next to each other without laying over another but also without any space (fabric) showing between. Keep in mind that the thread weight will cause the satin stitch to differ.

Error message "overloaded" will not sew. What does this mean?


Page 15 of the Manual says that it means "remove fabric and begin sewing again". If that doesn't resolve it, threads and/or fabric may be wrapped around something in the works. Open front and look carefully at all areas, especially all LOOPER thread paths. Many times AREA 9-10 (where thread lays in groove before being threaded thru the eye) can have thread stuck. Otherwise, may need to take it to your dealer for servicing. Good luck.

I have tried several steps to correct my Bernina 160's bottom thread tension; too loose. I did occur after I cleaned out bobbin case & hook race,


Buy to loose do you mean big loops on the botom? If so fallow these steps.
Usaly big loops on the botom of the fabric means that the top is not threaded coreccty. I would sugest threading the top thread again all the way to the needle. After you have done that pull on the thread and lift and lower the presser foot. There should be tension when it is down and no tensoin when it is up. I allway do this before I sew on a machine. If you do not have tension on it when the presser foot is down you did not get ithe thread in the tension unit. If you have tension when it is up then your machine needs a upper tension release adjustement.
Hope this helps friend.
Other problems could be a small peace of broke needle it the race area(inspect this close).
If you adjusted your bobbin tension this may need to be reset.

Singer 301a...sews on top of fabric nicely...bottom is just loose loops of thread...it's like the bobbin is not sewing...I put 2 different colors in to see...top is perfect...on bottom of fabric I see the...


This is a tension adjustment problem. It's good to use two different colors of thread, like you did. From your description, the top thread (needle thread) tension needs to be tighter. As you tighten the tension of the top thread, you'll see that the top thread pulls the bobbin thread up into the fabric so it's no longer laying loose on the bottom of the fabric.

You'll need to have the pressure foot down when you tighten the tension. Tighten it a little, sew a practice seam, check to see what the stitch looks like. Tighten it a little more, sew, check, etc etc--until both top and bottom look the same--you shouldn't see much (if any) of the bobbin thread color on top of the fabric or the top thread color on the underside.

Let me know how this works for you, ok?

Freesia 415 - bobbin thread is jamming up will


1. Put in a new needle
2. Take the thread off the top of your machine and rethread the top. Make sure the presser foot is in the up positon when you thread your machine because that is when the tensions discs separate so your thread gets deep into the unit where it belongs. The tension dial (the small dial) should be on 4 or 5.
3. Inspect the bobbin area. Do you see the thread laying across the bobbin itself? You should alway see the thread laying across the bobbin in that model. That tells you that you've threaded the bobbin case correctly. The thread must be pulled into the metal guide of the bobbin case, from approximately the 6 O'clock postion to the 7 O'clock position.
4Never turn the handwheel away from you with the 415. You'll notice that the take up lever is of a more open design. If you turn the handwheel backwards (away from you) the thread will jump out of the lever and jamming will result.

Hi I am pretty sure that the bobbin and the thread are in correctly but when I put the material in the needle just put holes in the material. what am I doing wrong?


you may have adjusted the upper tension and made it so tight that the thread just pulls out of the needle and needle makes holes in fabric. you might want to check the feed of the bobbin, it will not allow the machine to sew if it is not able to be picked up by the needle. the bobbin thread is usually (when held in your hand) with the thread coming counter clock wise. and then it will lay in the bobbin holder and the end of the thread will come back to about the slide catch thing and be held there until the needle thread catches it (leave the cover off the bobbin area until you watch and see what happens then. Try adjusting the bobbing tension too hope you understand what I mean here.
