Hi there the back of my stitching is making loops - can you help me to rectify this please

This is generally referred to as bird nesting or thread nesting. I prefer to call it a thread mess...

Be sure to install a brand new needle.
Remove the top thread from the machine.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning.
Set the top tension to the midway point then test the machine.
The optimum tension is achieved when the top and bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric. If the top thread is still showing too much on the bottom of the fabric, increase the top tension. If the bobbin thread is appearing on the top of the fabric, loosen the top tension. Seldom, bobbin tension may need to be adjusted, but this is very rare. In most cases, the top tension should be the main tension regulator.

Tension is a tug of war between the two threads. Correct tension is reached when neither thread wins but neither thread loses.

FWIW, tension is never static. Tension frequently needs to be adjusted every time a new project is begun since fabric, thread, and needle changes can affect tension.

I have a brother PR1000 and on the test stitch there is too much bobbin thread showing underneath. do I adjust the tension in the top thread or the bobbin tension?

Yes Adjust to more tight see what it'll do.
Bottom bobby is too tight or upper thread control is too lose.

Good luck

What is solution of lose stitching from bobbin

Hi: Always remember that it is impossible for bobbin thread to loop as it simply spools off bobbin, the problem will always be with the top tension. Make sure you top tension dial is centered (half of the numbers on the dial). Re thread top of machine with presser foot UP, thread to needle, pull thread (should be loose), then lower presser foot and thread should tighten up, if it doesn't that means lint in between the tension discs, threaded wrong or tension to loose. If it tightens up then should sew properly if you haven't changes adjustments on machine. Have repaired over 20,000 machines over the years and 95% of the time the problem always starts with improper threading.

My bobbin seems to be incorrectly, after a struggle -now the needle keeps losing its thread, so I'm sowing with no top thread!!! What am I doing!!'

Assuming your bobbin is threaded correctly. Try to pull your top thread thru the needle a bit longer & suggest you turn your hand wheel towards you till the needle just poked thru the fabric, then only you start sewing.

Always thread a sewing machine with the presser foot up and this will eliminate what looks like a loopy bobbin thread.

If you thread with the presser foot down, the tension control is not open to accept the thread as it is designed to do.

Then when you sew, the tension cannot control the top thread and the bobbin thread pulls the loose top thread to the bottom of the fabric.

Normal setting for the tension is usually mid-range ( 4 or 5).
